Granada will come into the clash on the back of a trip to Real Sociedad on Friday, with El Grana hoping to boost their hopes of securing European football for next season. They are competing with the likes of Valencia, Athletic Bibao and Sociedad for a spot in the Europa League.

"We have to keep fighting and enjoying watching the team compete at this level of football and performance," said Granada coach Diego Martinez.

Real will come into the match on the back of a home clash against Deportivo Alaves on Friday night. Los Blancos’ last away game brought a key 1-0 win at Athletic Bilbao last weekend – continuing their great form since the end of lockdown.

“Each person will think what they think. All I have to say is that we're thinking about this upcoming game, because the truth is that it's all that matters to us right now,” said Real manager Zinedine Zidane. “What we want to do is play on the pitch.”

In head-to-head stats, Granada and Real have met in 13 matches across all competitions. Los Blancos have claimed 12 wins compared to just one for El Grana, while zero games have been drawn.

When the teams met in La Liga earlier this season, at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in October 2019, Real claimed a 4-2 home win thanks to goals from Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard, Luka Modric and James Rodriguez.
