Check out our match preview and betting prediction for Real Madrid’s visit to Granada in the Spanish Primera Division.

Real Madrid will be looking to maintain their four-point lead on top of La Liga when they visit Granada tonight at 22:00 (CET).

The Whites are perfect since the return of top-flight Spanish football with eight wins from eight league outings in the past month.

Victory at the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes would put Zinedine Zidane’s boys just two points away from clinching their record 34th La Liga crown.

What to bet on?

Winner – Real Madrid

Anything but a Real Madrid victory would be a big surprise in Granada this evening.

The Whites are on a nine-game winning run against this opponent, including a 9-1 thrashing in April 2015.

Granada showed some great performances at home in the pre-coronavirus period of the season, but Los Nazaries, collected just four points from the four games they’ve hosted since the La Liga restart.

Goals – Under 2,50

Zinedine Zidane opted to play a cautious football in the past few weeks, trying to keep his players fresh for the narrow La Liga schedule.

The Whites kept a clean sheet in their last five outings in the league, netting averagely 1,40 goals in the process.

If you feel brave enough, you can even try the “Under 1,50 goals” bet, with odds over 4.00 on oddschecker.com.

Goalscorer – Karim Benzema

Karim Benzema is Real Madrid’s top goalscorer in La Liga this season with 18 goals from 34 appearances.

It is time for the French striker to step up when he is needed the most and guide the Whites to their 34th Spanish Championship.

Benzema found the net in the last eight games he started against Granada, which means he loves playing against this opposition.
