Many a football pundits will be deliberating over this one. One place and seven points separates these two teams in the middle of La Liga.
While a top half finish would be satisfactory for Granada, Villarreal still harbours loftier ambitions. The Yellow Submarine is likely out of the race for the top four, but they are just two points off the Europa League spots.
While neighbours in the table, the expected figures paint a different picture. Granada have overachieved, and Villarreal have fallen short. Roughly 20 expected points separates the two teams, yet they have both won 10 league matches this term.
With wins in both matches before the international break, Villarreal are a good bet to make it three on the bounce. This match ended in a 2-2 draw earlier in the campaign, but there’s no question the visitors are the better side.
Predictions: Villarreal win
