Granada isn’t playing like a newly promoted side right now. Despite their loss to Real Madrid, they are having one fine season. Osasuna is coming off a win but they have been struggling for the most of the season. Granada’s offense has looked good to start the year and I think that it’s going to be their attack against Osasuna’s defense here. I’m picking Granada to win here. Prediction: Granada
