Match in Focus

19:45 TODAY SS5

Alaves v Granada

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Granada have conceded two goals or more in each of their last four matches
Expert verdict
A late penalty condemned Alaves to a 2-1 defeat at Valencia on Thursday but the promoted side have acquitted themselves well in their first five games and can respond with a win. Both of Alaves’s home games this season have finished 0-0 but they should have better luck breaking down second bottom Granada, who have conceded 12 goals.
