Granada vs Barcelona head-to-head record

Games played: 47
Granada wins: 5’
Barcelona wins: 38
The home side will be without the services of Alex Martinez, Yann Eteki, Neyder Lozano and Fede Vico, which is a huge blow to Granada. However, there is hope that Quini will recover from injury to take his spot in the defense.
As for Barcelona, Messi could make his first start of the season after recovering from his injury. The Argentine icon made his return in the 0-0 draw with Dortmund, albeit showing signs of being unfit, but should make Saturday’s lineup.
Jordi Alba will miss this one after picking up a knock in the Champions League trip to Germany. This game also comes too soon for Ousmane Dembele.
