*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Despite expected rotation, the visitors are the favourites according to the Granada vs Real Madrid odds with an implied probability of 65.2% that they win this one.

Real Madrid rotated but still won 3-0 against Cadiz last weekend with the title sealed by virtue of Barcelona’s defeat at Girona later in the day. They then staged another remarkable late comeback in the Champions League with Joselu’s brace at the death sealing a 4-3 aggregate win over Bayern Munich.

Granada come into this game after a 3-0 defeat at Sevilla on Monday and they may be relegated this weekend, even if they win this match.

Player to watch – Joselu

It has been an extraordinary season for Joselu in many respects, despite his bit-part role for Carlo Ancelotti. A huge Real Madrid fan, he jumped at the unexpected chance to play for the club last summer and wrote his name into club folklore with two late goals on Wednesday to move onto 17 this term for Los Blancos in all competitions.

Goals per minute stats up there with the best

Joselu now averages a ridiculous goal every 54 minutes in the Champions League this term. His league numbers aren’t quite so good, but he still averages a strike every 166 minutes in La Liga which is very healthy.
