Real Madrid hosts Granada CF in round 8 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Saturday, October 5th at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid)
It seems that Real Madrid is not in the best shape concerning the shown game, but judging by the results, everything is going well: four wins and 3 draws. However, victories cannot be called confident. The Whites have very skilled players in the attack, although all tactical plans end in a straightforward game and usual high crosses in the penalty area. Therefore, Real Madrid doesn’t please its fans with a large number of goals scored so far. The defense also has a decent abundance of problems: Thibaut Courtois is not as reliable as the fans would like; positional defense is also lame, and players often make serious mistakes in simple situations. All these shortcomings are especially visible in the matches of the Champions League, where the Whites have spent a lot of energy with Belgian Brugge. As for the Spanish League, the team manages to beat weak opponents so far, but mainly with a minimal advantage. Therefore, it won’t be easy for the Whites in the upcoming round because very unyielding Granada will come to them.

Granada unexpectedly settled down on the second line of the standings. The men of Diego Martinez braced themselves after two unsuccessful starting rounds and did not suffer defeats for 5 matches (4 wins and 1 draw). It is worth noting that the Red-whites have already managed to make a sensation, beating Barcelona (2-0). So, do not count on the fact that Granada will be scared of a titled rival. The team has a fairly well-defined game in both attack and defense. Granada compactly plays in defense and can pat any team now.
We shouldn’t wait for some landslide victories from Real Madrid so far. The hosts are spraying their forces into two tournaments and do not have well-thought-out tactics + the players are still far from their ideal shapes, having already played 9 matches. Granada, in turn, has successfully entered the rhythm of the game, and the team is demonstrating high-quality football so far. Therefore, I propose to use a -2 handicap for Granada.
Prediction for the match: Granada CF to with +2.0 handicap
