With La Liga's relegation battles intensifying, Granada is set to host Alaves on 14th April at Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes.

Both teams, freshly promoted, are grappling with their own set of challenges in Spain’s top flight, but their paths this season have diverged notably.

Current Form

Granada's Current Form

Granada finds itself in a precarious situation, placed 19th and dangerously close to being relegated.

The team's form has been concerning, with five consecutive losses in the league. Their recent defeat against Valencia accentuates a season fraught with struggles, boasting only two wins out of 30 matches.

With a challenging schedule ahead, including matches against top-tier teams, their prospects of staying up look bleak.

Alaves's Current Form

In contrast, Alaves sits more comfortably in 13th place, seven points clear of the relegation zone.

However, their form has also dipped recently, losing three of their last four matches.

Despite this, their overall performance this season has been sufficient to give them a fighting chance to secure another season in La Liga.

Team News

Granada's Team News

Granada will likely be without Oscar Melendo due to a muscle issue.

The team will probably field a 4-4-2 formation, looking to Lucas Boye and Myrto Uzuni to lead the attack, with the latter having netted nine goals this season.

Alaves's Team News

Alaves will miss Aleksandar Sedlar due to a long-term knee injury.

The expected lineup should feature Luis Rioja, Jon Guridi, and Carlos Vicente supporting Samu Omorodion upfront, who has scored eight times this campaign.
