Granada take on the visitors Villarreal in the round 1 match of Spanish Primera. The match takes place at Nuevo Los Carmenes stadium on Saturday, August 20th.
Granada finished 16th in Primera last season, only one point ahead of team that got relegated to Segunda. Despite poor last season, the team sold players for total of 32.4m euro. All these footballers were replaced with dozen of free agents and loaned players. Such ambiguous transfer campaign makes them one of the most possible candidates for relegation.

Villarreal had excellent season 2015/16, advancing for the Europa League semifinals and finishing fourth in the league, gaining the right to make Champions League start. The team lost their manager Toral, who created the team and the club appointed Fran Eskriba as the Yellow Submarine head coach. Renewed Villarreal lost their home leg of the Champions League qualifying matchup with Monaco, 1-2, putting themselves in quite difficult situation before the return leg next week.
Villarreal won their last three head-to-heads against Granada with 6-1 on aggregate. However, we can expect to see some bench players of the hosts in the match as following clash with Monaco has much higher priority for the club. With luck of motivation of the host side we should expect low-scoring result as Granada doesn’t look like the side who can cause troubles to anyone this season.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
