Granada vs Getafe Preview & Prediction 15 Mar 2020
Our prediction for this Primera Division match
Granada and Getafe face each other at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Sunday’s program. Granada have been performing above expectations in the 2019/20 season, but, as things stand now, they are unlikely to book their place in European competitions. Los Azulones, on the other hand, are eyeing a spot in the Champions League, and we are positive that they will go for a victory in Sunday’s football match.
Getafe failed to turn their dominance into goals in a goalless draw with Celta Vigo, but we believe that they are going to beat Granada on Matchday 28. Even though midfielder Mauro Arambarri is sidelined through suspension, we are tempted to put our money on the Champions League-chasing side. When the two teams met in the suburbs of Madrid earlier this term Getafe defeated Granada 3-1.
