We bring to your attention the announcement of the Spanish Championship match.
Barcelona will host Granada at Camp Nou as part of the La Liga 20th round.
Barcelona – Granada
Sunday, January 19, 10 p.m. Barcelona, Camp Nou. The chief arbiter is Valentin Pizzaro.
Barcelona is approaching the match in the rank of the second team of the standings, but has every chance to catch up with Real, who defeated Seville in a difficult match. The last “blue garnet” match was held against Atlético in the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup – the meeting ended in defeat for the Catalans with a score of 2: 3.
Obviously, after the departure from the tournament, Barcelona is not in the best mood, but the team received a new coach – Kike Setiena. Quite often, this development of events has a positive effect on players. Emotional reboot, the desire to prove their suitability to a new coach. And maybe Seten already managed to convey something new to his wards.
Granada, in turn, is on the tenth line of the standings and has 27 points. “Nasrid” a week earlier beat Tamaraseyte in the Cup of Spain with a minimum score, and before that, they dealt with Mallorca in the championship. Granada does not play in guest fights in the best way, but at home it shows itself well.
The team, by the way, was able to beat Barcelona in the first round and then led the standings, but this is already behind. The magic of “Nasrid” somewhat weakened, but because they solve other problems. Guests will have serious staffing problems. Lozano, Montoro and Herrera will be absent for various reasons, which will be a loss.
From Barcelona, for a long time, Luis Suarez flew out, and Usman Dembele had not yet managed to recover. Frankie de Jong in the last round against Espanyol earned a red card, which cost his team points, and he was disqualified from the match. Arthur is already close to returning, but his appearance on the field is still not worth expecting.
