Real Madrid can take a four-point lead at the top of the LaLiga table by clinching a win against Granada on October 5, 2019. Los Blancos are having an uneven run this season. They have four wins and three draws in LaLiga 2019-20, whereas, they are facing a rough patch in the Champions League with a loss and a draw in their first two matches. Granada are the surprise package this season, as they stand second in the table with 14 points to their name.
Karim Benzema will be the main man for Real Madrid with five goals already to his name in LaLiga this season. The striker alongside with Gareth Bale can trouble the Granada defence. The Welsh forward was left out of Real Madrid's Champions League clash against Club Brugge and is expected to start against Granada. Former Chelsea player Eden Hazard is still to score his first goal for Real Madrid and show the fans why he is an accurate replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Roberto Soldado is the most experienced player in the Granada squad, the No. 9 can link well with other forwards. Soldado has two assists so far this season and the Spaniard's partnership with Puertas can be dangerous for the Los Blancos. Granada will be without Yan Brice Eteki in their midfield for their trip to Santiago Bernabeu, as he picked an ankle injury a few days back. Vico and Quini will also be missing from the clash and Granada will be forced to opt for Martinez due to shortage of options in their midfield.
