Granada vs Rayo Vallecano lineups

Granada

Granada's season opener didn't go as well as they had hoped, as they suffered a 3-1 loss to Atletico Madrid. It's important to point out that Paco Lopez's men finished at the top of the Segunda Division last season, returning to La Liga after a one-year absence. It'll be interesting to see if Granada can get their first win of the season today. Raul Torrente is sidelined for the hosts, and is expected to return early next month.

Predicted lineups: Ferreira, Rubio, Neva, Miquel, Alonso, Meseguer, Zaragoza, Melendo, Uzuni, Omorodion.

Rayo Vallecano

On the other hand, Rayo Vallecano kicked off their new La Liga campaign with a 2-0 victory at Almeria; they had no wins in four prior games, with three draws and a loss. Francisco Rodriguez's lads will hope to string up back-to-back wins for the first time since February. There are no injured or suspended players for the visitors.

Predicted lineups: Dimitrievski, Balliu, Hernandez, Lejeune, Espino, López, Valentín, Palazón, Trejo, Garcia, Nteka.

Player to watch: Myrto Uzuni

We've already established that Granada finished at the top of the Segunda Division last season. Myrto Uzuni was one of the reasons for this; as he found the back of the net 23 times, with five assists. The Albanian player scored in one of two pre-season friendlies for the club, and he'll be eyeing his first goal of the season today.
