Las Palmas enjoy home advantage, when visitors Granada swing by on Sunday for a clash in the La Liga. The former will be looking to make that home advantage count.

Las Palmas are placed 19 with two points after five matches. Granada occupy a position as 18 in the league on three points.

Entering the match this coming Sunday as favourite, Las Palmas will be looking to squeeze past Granada in the La Liga table with a win.

Las Palmas scored three goals, conceded 13 and fought their way to one clean sheets in their previous ten matches.

Granada scored 17 goals, conceded 21 and managed two clean sheets in their previous ten matches.

Las Palmas were defeated by 1-0 in their last encounter with Granada, but did win the reverse match 5-1, though.

Las Palmas vs Granada Prediction

Las Palmas Form

A single point is all Las Palmas can show for their efforts in the past three matches. They managed a 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad, before getting trounced 1-0 against Girona while Sevilla won 1-0. Las Palmas didn't manage a single win in any of their previous six La Liga games at the Estadio de Gran Canaria. They have a record of two draws and four defeats, in which they conceded nine and scored two goals.

The target is set for Las Palmas whose aim is to stay above the relegation line in the coming season in the La Liga.

Granada Form

Granada have only one win in their last three matches, as they did beat Mallorca by 3-2. Disappointment followed, going down 5-3 against Real Sociedad, and 2-4 against Girona. Granada only have one paltry win to show from the last six away games in the La Liga. In these six matches they drew one and lost four as well as being outscored by 16 goals to 12.

Most people expect Granada to face a hard battle to avoid relegation from the La Liga for most of the season. This is a fiercely competitive league each year, and they seem to be lacking in quality.

We've thought long and hard which bet offers the best price at the bookies, as the match against Granada could turn out a bit slippery for Las Palmas. Considering form and strength in squad, we nevertheless ended up siding with the latter on Sunday.

Las Palmas show off a record of zero wins, two draws and three defeats in the La Liga this season. Granada have one win, zero draws and four defeats in the La Liga.
