This game will see two of the pre-season relegation favorites going against each other for all three points here at José Zorrilla.
Real Valladolid have performed exactly the way it was expected of them at the start of the season. They have won just once in the first five games, while the two defeats in the last three have left them with just one point off the dreaded bottom three.
Granada, meanwhile, have defied all odds so far. Not only they are 3rd on the points table but the newly-promoted club ripped the Mickey out of every prediction by beating Barcelona 2-0 in the last game.
But what was more satisfying for the fans of this club that the memorable 3 points were thoroughly deserved as Diego Martínez’s men completely outplayed the La Liga champions.
The La Liga match will be played between Real Valladolid and Granada at José Zorrilla Stadium, in Valladolid, Spain. The ground has a capacity of 26,512.
The game will start at 10:30 PM (IST), on Tuesday, August 24.
