On Saturday afternoon, Granada hosts Valencia at the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes as both teams look for potentially vital points in La Liga.Granada still searching for a La Liga win
The Andalusians head into this clash on the back of a six-game winless run in the Spanish top-flight. However, a 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers Almeria last time out means they have drawn their previous three games in La Liga.
Alex Medina’s team will be desperate to get back to winning ways, as they are in 19th place in the Spanish top-flight table, six points from safety.
The home team’s recent matches in the Spanish top flight have lacked goals, with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their last seven outings.
Granada have won just one of their last 11 home games in the Spanish top-flight, although they have drawn their previous two La Liga matches on home soil.Valencia has been struggling for consistency lately
Los Che’s challenge for the European spots this season has been hindered by an inconsistent run of form in La Liga. A goalless home draw against Sevilla last time out means that Ruben Baraja’s team has won just once in their previous four matches in the Spanish top flight.
The fact that Valencia has failed to score in three of their last four matches in La Liga has not helped the visitor's chances of mounting a top-six challenge this season.
Valencia is in eighth place in La Liga, four adrift of the European berths in the Spanish top flight.
Los Che has a mixed recent away record in the Spanish top flight, although they have now suffered five defeats in their previous seven away matches in La Liga.What am I backing?
Neither team has been in great form of late in La Liga. I can see this being a tight, close encounter with few goals. With that in mind, the bet I am backing is under 2.5 goals.
