Granada vs Barcelona: how and where to watch - times, TV, online
All the info on how and where to watch the Liga fixture between Granada and Barcelona at Los Cármenes on Saturday 9 January, 2021. Kick-off is at 18:30 CET.
Granada host Barcelona on Saturday in Los Cármenes with the Andalusian outfit looking to home comfort to trip up Ronald Koeman’s side. On their own turf, Diego Martínez’s side have lost only once this season in LaLiga with Athletic, Sevilla, Betis and Valencia all being seen off by the tactical nous of the former full back. With his side in seventh and facing Napoli in the last 32 of the Europa League, Martínez has built on last season’s success and created a team that are quite capable of mixing it with the big boys: Granada beat Barça 2-0 last season in this fixture and will fancy their chances of causing another upset in a game US viewers can watch on Fanatiz.
Goals have been an issue in 2020-21 with Granada managing only 19 in LaLiga while shipping 25 at the other end, more than any other side in the top 10. However, Barcelona have their own well-documented issues in both respects and will be without senior central defenders Gerard Piqué and Clément Lenglet in Los Cármenes.
Koeman’s Barça seem perennially on the edge of a 90-minute meltdown and have been far from convincing on the whole domestically this season. Even when they have a game under control, as at Athletic, the sensation is that no team is incapable of pulling themselves back into it and Koeman has identified the need for a natural striker to score the all-important second goal. Barça remain hugely reliant on the magic of Leo Messi – and increasingly on Pedri to bring him into play. An off-day for the Argentinean genius or his Spanish foil can open the door for opposition sides with few goals flowing from the rest of Koeman’s squad.
