Granada welcome Getafe to the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes, looking to extend their unbeaten run in their La Liga (LL) home H2Hs to three straight games (W1, D1).
The hosts had racked up a four-game unbeaten league run (W2, D2), restricting their opponents to a maximum of one goal per match in each of those games, before the pandemic curtailed their momentum. What’s more, the ‘Nazaríes’ had secured three consecutive LL home wins before being held to a 0-0 draw to Celta Vigo, with each of those victories yielding a single-goal margin. In turn, 12 of Granada’s last 13 home matches in all competitions have ended separating the sides by under 1.5 goals (W9, D2, L2), with half (six) of those results (win/loss) producing the identical 2-1 scoreline. But, Granada usually zone out after the halftime break, as 75% (six) of their total eight LL home goals conceded so far came in the second half of play.
On the other hand, the visitors had endured mixed fortunes before the pandemic gripped football in Spain (W2, D1, L2), but they nonetheless remain in contention for the top-four finish. Indeed, they sit level on points with fourth-placed Real Sociedad ahead of the kick-off. Curiously, none of Getafe’s six previous LL away fixtures has ended in a draw (W4, L2), with four of those results yielding a narrow one-goal margin. Keeping a clean sheet will be of the essence for Getafe here, considering that all but two of their ten LL away results during this campaign have seen the winner on the day preserve a blank sheet.
