Bottom of the table Grenada can give their survival chances a boost on Saturday evening.
Granada v Sporting Gijon - Saturday 19:45, Sky Sports 3
Granada are in dire straits as they prop up the bottom of table having picked up just two points from their eight games so far and they were thumped 7-1 at Atletico last time out, meaning they’ve now conceded 23 goals already. Gijon picked up seven points from their first three, but have now lost their last five to drop down to 18th.
Granada have lost their last three at home but all of those defeats were by just a single goal and they managed a draw against Villarreal in their opening game of the season. Their home record last term was W6-D5-L8 and when hosting bottom-six sides they were W3-D2-L0, though they managed just one clean sheet in these games as three saw more than three goals.
Since Gijon have scored in eight of their last 11, with two of the exceptions against Barca and Atletico, we expect both teams to score. Gijon have lost 14 of their 23 road games since the start of last season and they’re W0-D2-L3 when travelling to bottom-five teams in that period so there is a great chance for Granada to win and both teams to score.
