Granada had terrible season, they are at rock bottom of the table in Spanish Primera and as there only one round left until the end of this campaign they are without chances to survive, in previous one they managed to survive but they were completely out of the tracks during this whole campaign and in 37 matches achieved only four victories and collected 20 points which can't be enough for safe zone. In last 12 matches they suffered 11 defeats and got one draw while in last seven rounds suffered seven defeats, in last fame for them in Spanish first division they will host Espanyol and they will try to at least leave a good impression, if hosts don't changes something in their game i'm not so sure that can win promotion in the next season. In last duel with Espanyol were defeated away from home with two goals margin and i doubt that tonight will manage to achieve different outcome. They scored only 29 goals, least of all teams in Spain while conceded 80 and had one of the worst defenses, this just wasn't their season, tonight must show some pretty good skills to win, they aren't without chances since this game isn't important for opponents bu still i doubt that can achieve positive outcome and end season with victory. Defenders Franck Tabanou (7/0), Dimitri Foulquier (22/0) and Matthieu Saunier (16/0) are all injured and will miss this game, forward Artem Kravets (26/0) is suspended while offensive midfielder Jeremie Boga (25/2) is in doubt due to his injury issues.
Espanyol on the other hand were decent in this campaign and same as in previous season will end at the middle of the table, in last round they were defeated at home with narrow result by Valencia although had chances and should at least earn one point, they failed to find consistency in their form but they are mediocre side and simple couldn't join the battle for Europe. Guests achieved their maximum, so far recorded 14 victories out of 37 rounds, in those games scored 47 goals while conceded 49, that maybe don't seems so great but it was more than enough for the middle of the table, tonight they are favorites but the outcome of this match can't change much for them, however they are for sure stronger side and should be able to win, in last seven meetings with hosts they achieved five victories and got two draws, at this stadium were defeated only once in five years and i believe that can achieve final victory tonight. Guests shouldn't had much problems to score some goal tonight against team with one of the worst defenses in league, despite aren't in some great form, in last five games celebrated only once over Deportivo on the road but also have two very difficult games against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid where were defeated, anyway here shouldn't have a hard task to win last match in this campaign. Defenders Oscar Duarte (15/0) and Javi Lopes (19/0) will both stay out of action due to injuries while goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez (4/0), midfielders Reyes (21/3), Salva Sevilla (6/0) and Papakouly Diop (18/0) are all having problems with injuries and their appearances are in doubt.
Granada couldn't survive, not with such bad performances, they simple failed and will play n Segunda for the next season, here will go for a victory but i doubt that can overcome decent guests which despite are without motivation are still stronger team and in better shape so can't see other outcome except victory of Espanyol.
