Granada returns to La Liga action following the international break on Friday, as they bid to land a second win of the season to move out of the bottom three. Osasuna will have the home advantage, as they look to end a run of two defeats in three.
La Liga Preview
The action in Spain resumes following the international break on Friday evening, as the weekend gets underway with Osasuna hosting Granada. Osasuna will be looking for a response, as they have suffered two defeats in their last three matches. Meanwhile, they have registered just a single victory from their last five outings in the league.
But, a victory on Friday could lift Osasuna into the top half of the standings, and they will be favoured to land maximum points in front of their home fans. But, the Spanish club will be hoping for a response on Friday, as they were easily beaten before the international break by Real Madrid. Osasuna were outclassed throughout that fixture, and they conceded three times in the second half. But, this is likely a golden opportunity to get back in the win column.
It has been a very nervy start to the La Liga season for Granada, and something will have to change if they are to avoid getting dragged into a relegation scrap this term. The Spanish club currently sits 19th in the standings, but a success on Friday would lift them out of the bottom three places.
However, they come into this match having gone five without a victory in the competition. But, they have avoided defeat in their previous three after being held to three straight draws. The most recent of those was a very creditable 2-2 home draw against Barcelona, as Bryan Zaragoza Martinez scored a brace.

Osasuna vs Granada Prediction
This should be an interesting fixture to kick off the La Liga weekend on Friday. Osasuna could be good value to take the victory, as they have excelled in recent clashes against Granada over the last two seasons.
