Barcelona return to action for the first time since their 3-0 humbling at home to Bayern Munich when they host Granada on Monday night and while they may have looked toothless against the Bavarian side a much stronger showing is expected on Monday.
The Catalan club head into this game eighth in La Liga but, with a game in hand on six of the seven sides above them, they know they could go to within touching distance of the top spot with a win on Monday. Granada, meanwhile, are only a point above the drop zone and searching for their first win of the season.
With an entertaining affair expected, we’ve put together a massive 81/1 bet builder for the occasion.
81/1 Ultimate Bet Builder for Barcelona vs Granada
Barcelona to win
Barcelona may have received a Champions League humbling in midweek but their league record this season has been surprisingly good considering the circumstances.
They have won two and drawn one of their games, while visitors Granada remain winless this season and have lost their last two outings, including shipping four at Rayo Vallecano in their last away day.
Both teams to score
Barcelona are yet to keep a clean sheet in any competition this season and conceded three at home to Bayern Munich in midweek.
Granada aren’t exactly the threat of the Bavarian giants, but the visitors have scored in 11 of their last 13 league away games and could find the net against a Barca side that have conceded in nine of their last 12 competitive games.
Memphis Depay to score anytime
Memphis Depay is proving to be Barcelona’s main attacker after Lionel Messi’s departure and the Dutch forward is in scintillating form.
He has scored two goals in his three La Liga outings for the Catalans and has scored nine goals in his last 11 competitive games for club and country, including a five-goal haul for Netherlands in the recent international break.
Frenkie de Jong to make an assist
Netherlands midfielder Frenkie de Jong could be the perfect man to assist his compatriot Depay, with the youngster already laying on two goals in three La Liga games this season.
He has produced nine shot-creating actions in his three games this season and, with Pedri sidelined and Ansu Fati a doubt, will be Barcelona’s main creative outlet.
Luis Suarez to have 1+ shot on target
Granada’s Luis Suarez might not have the same incredible record as his Atletico Madrid namesake but he has managed to score twice already this season and tends to be a threat going forward.
He has hit the target at least once in three of his four games this season and, looking back to last season, he has registered eight shots on target in his last seven La Liga appearances.
German Sanchez to be booked
Central defender German Sanchez has been an absolute card magnet since moving to Granada in 2018/19, racking up 32 bookings and two red cards in 100 appearances prior to this season.
He has started the new campaign in the same vein, too, picking up two yellow cards in four games so far. Not only that, but he’s been been booked four times (twice in the same game) in his five appearances against Barcelona.
