Granada Plays its Last Primera Division Match against EspanyolPublished May 19, 2017 by Florin P
Granada bids goodbye to the Spanish first flight and seek victory in the home match against Espanyol (7:45 p.m UK Time).
What the fans have feared for three months has become a reality, as Granada is officially relegated to Liga Adelante. They were unable to win a home game in more than three months and no matter what happens in the final round, they are guaranteed to play in the second division. Even so, the hosts are motivated to win against Espanyol, since this is their final match in Primera Division.
No Motivation Whatsoever for the Visitors
Espanyol players have achieved the objective set for them in the beginning of the season and had no problem in avoiding relegation. In fact they exceeded expectations and will finish in the first half of the tables regardless of the outcome of this match. That’s why motivation is at its slowest and several key players are not expected to feature in the starting formation.
The list of injuries got longer ahead of this fixture and the ones who will end up playing are likely to give 100%. The head to head record is slightly in their favor, but this is the first time Espanyol travels to Granada with nothing to win or lose. They would gladly settle for one point if they get the chance, knowing that the fans and management won’t mind either.
A Final Opportunity for Granada Players
Some of the most talented footballers playing for the home side are likely to leave the club at the end of the season. In order to increase their chances of landing at a better formation, they need to take advantage of this final opportunity. They could be judged based on this performance, not to mention that a victory will help them leave a positive memory. That’s why punters should take a leap of faith with the home side and bet on them not to lose at bet365 Sports.
