Granada CF – Sevilla Preview

  • Things haven’t gone to plan for manager Robert Moreno at Granada so far, as his side head into the gameweek as one of just three teams yet to secure a La Liga (LL) victory (D3, L4). It’s only the fourth time in club history that they’ve gone winless across their opening seven LL games, and the first since the fateful 2016/17 campaign that ended in relegation.
  • To avoid a similar fate, it’s imperative that they start getting points on the board. They therefore might look to take confidence from a strong recent record against Sevilla, winning three of the last four H2H home LL matches. Their winner in last season’s encounter here arrived inside the final 15 minutes of the match, which is ironically a period that’s been their Achilles heel this campaign (GF:0, GA:5).
  • Sevilla have fared much better than their hosts and remain just one of three LL sides unbeaten (W4, D2). They’ll look to add to that record here aware that they’ve won nine of their last 11 LL Andalusian derbies (D1, L1), although the one defeat did come in their last visit to the Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes (1-0).
  • The most impressive facet of the start made by Julen Lopetegui’s men this term has been the robustness of their defence. Perhaps as an ex-goalkeeper, the Sevilla boss clearly takes pride in clean sheets, and heading into the weekend, they’d conceded the fewest number of goals (two) and faced the second-fewest number of shots (54).
  • Players to watch: Against no other opponent has new Granada striker Carlos Bacca scored more LL goals than Sevilla (five in seven appearances). Whilst coming into the gameweek, Sevilla’s Rafa Mir was averaging a shot every 12 minutes, that’s more than any other player to play 50+ LL minutes.
  • Hot stat: Moreno could become the first Granada coach ever to fail to win any of his first eight LL games in charge.
