Valencia will be back in front of their home fans in La Liga on Sunday, as they bid to extend their unbeaten run to four matches in the competition. There will be pressure on Granada this weekend, as they will need a positive performance to enhance their chances of moving out of the bottom three.
La Liga Preview
Valencia will be looking to continue their fine form in La Liga this weekend when they look to stretch their unbeaten run in the competition to four matches. It has been a reliable enough start to the new season for the Spanish club, as they have put their relegation battle last term in the rear view mirror.
Valencia have won four of their first eleven matches this term, and they currently sit ninth in the standings. A fifth victory of the campaign this weekend could see the club end the weekend as high as sixth in the standings. But, they will need to recover after drawing two of their previous three. Their most recent draw was picked up last weekend, as they played out an entertaining 2-2 tie against Athletic Bilbao.
Granada will have pressure on their shoulders coming into this match on the road, as they currently sit 19th in the La Liga standings. They have landed just one victory from their opening eleven matches this term, and only the side at the bottom of the standings have conceded more goals so far this season.
Granada have lost each of their last two in La Liga, which includes a defeat against Villarreal last Monday. Their rivals netted three goals in the opening 28 minutes, meaning that Granada will need to start much better if they are to get anything from this trip to Valencia.
Valencia vs Granada Head to Head
Valencia have gone three matches without defeat in the league against Granada. Their home record across recent seasons has also been strong, as they have won each of their last three against their rivals. Their most recent win was a 3-1 success in March 2022. Meanwhile, both teams have found the net in each of the last five La Liga matches between the sides.
Valencia vs Granada Prediction
Valencia’s form has been reliable over the opening months of the season, while Granada are struggling for victories. Therefore, the preference is for the hosts to continue their strong recent form in front of their own fans.
