Match Date: 20 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

 

El Grana shall visit Ramon Sanchez Pzjuan with great confidence that they will survive this difficult season. The club just clinched a historic win against the mighty Barcelona last week.

 

Nobody expected that Granada’s 3 consecutive defeats will inspire them to beat one of the giant clubs in La Liga and it was not just a big club, it was the perennial title contender, Barcelona. Emotions were high. Lucas Alcaraz cannot help but thank the club’s supporters for never leaving the club. The medic even shed tears of joy.

 

Despite the win, Alcaraz stressed the need to secure more victories as the road to survival remains long and difficult. Granada are having problems with their away matches. They have already lost 7 of its last 8 away matches. The last thing they want to know is to fall into such trap. Alcaraz is aware that in as much as they were inspired by the victory against Barcelona, Sevilla will less likely throw the white towel in its own territory.

 

Speaking of Sevilla, the club brags an impressive form. It has only lost once in its last 6 matches and has already sealed a spot in the Europa League qualifiers. However, it is also possible for Sevilla to make in the Champions League as it only trails Athletic Bilbao by a few points. The club has several matches left and if they emerge victorious, it is possible to see Unai Emery and his men participating in the Champions League.

 

Certainly, it does not take a genius to see that Sevilla is the favorite of many online bookies.

 

Prediction: Sevilla
