Sevilla vs Granada Prediction 8 May 2016

Tournament: La Liga
Location: Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan
Match date: 05/08/2016 at 16:00

Clearly, primary goal for Sevilla this season is to win their third Europa League consecutive title, this is why they have been performing rather inconsistently in the national league. Unai Emery’s side earned only 4 points in their last 5 games. They obviously lack motivation, as they won’t drop lower than 7th spot and have no chances to climb to the Champions League zone. On top of that, Sevilla are 7th in the league with 52 points and 49:43 goal difference. But they are in the Europa League final, so they did it on purpose.

Granada have been struggling offensively this season and they are currently involved in the relegation battle two games prior the end of the season. They’ve recorded 9 wins, 9 draws and 18 defeats having 42:65 goal difference. Granada are 16th in the league being 1 point above the drop zone. The visitors recorded only 13 points on the road this season and their last away victory was earned on 28 February against Deportivo.

Surely, Sevilla have serious advantage in number of wins over Granada in head-to-head record. However, due to Sevilla’s horrible away form Granada managed to win their first matchup against Emery’s side earlier this season. Having beaten Shakhtar Donetsk few days ago Sevilla will probably think about how to cope with Klopp’s Liverpool in the final of the Europa League. This way they won’t probably bother going all out in the Primera match means almost nothing to them. Granada in turn will be highly motivated as they battle with three other sides to say in the La Liga.
