Fresh off a hard fought 1-0 win over FC Porto in the UEFA Champions League, Barcelona will return to La Liga action this weekend, hoping to continue where they stopped. The Blaugranas have been showing the stuff of champions in the league this season so far. Xavi Hernadez’s men are very keen on defending their La Liga title, and they have been playing out of their socks to make that a reality.
A perfect example of their resolve to win the title is the performance against Celta Vigo when they were two goals down, with less than a quarter the champions rallied back to win 3-2.
Granada also showed a similar never say die attitude in their last outing in the La Liga. They were three goals down at half time and fought their way back to restore parity. Such is the attitude of the Granada side but any slip up against Barcelona could cost them the game.
The home side for this fixture invested in new acquisition in the summer, and we have started seeing the impacts of the newly acquired players like Gumbau who was solid in their last outing. However, he is suspended for this one, and that makes their jobs even harder.
Barcelona are favourites to win this match, and as such, smart money should be on the champions.Therefore it is a no brainer to back Barcelona to win as our main Granada vs Barcelona prediction.
As head into the weekend, we have a groundswell of La Liga betting tips for games in the Spanish topflight.
Main tip: Barcelona Win -Tip 2
Our Granada vs Barcelona predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Barcelona Win -Tip 2
Barca goes in to this fixture as the team with the better form and their results pretty much shows that. And with such a form, they are likely to claim the scalp of Granada, despite the fact that they will be playing at home in front of their own fans.With Barca’s form it will be hard to bet against them. Xavi Hernandez’s men are high on confidence, and it will be difficult for Granada to get a positive result here. Based on this, we expect the Barcelona to claim all three points available in this match.

Prediction 2: Most Goals Scored – 2nd Half
As stated earlier, Granada showed a defiant form after having gone down to 3-0 against Almeria last weekend. But they manage to find their way back, and claim a point. Now, with Barcelona coming to town, Granada could employ a defensive approach to stifle the rampaging Barcelona attack. So, this match is primed for more goals in the secon half of the encounter.Thus, we reckon that more goals will be scored in the second half of the match.

Prediction 3: Barcelona Over 1.5 Goals
Barcelona are gradually getting back to the era when Xavi Hernandez himself was a player at Barcelona, and dominated almost every team in the La Liga, and on the continent. Just like as it was back then, they have a really good attack with the experienced Robert Lewandowski supported by a stellar cast of attacking talents. And true to their talents, Barcelona have been scoring goals for fun and this match looks like one where they can rack up the goals given Granada’s plucky defending. Therefore, we are expecting Barcelona to score at least two total goals in this match.
