Granada C.F., a tough opponent to face on the road

The pepineros are in the midst of a brilliant season, having secured qualification through being one of the best teams in their group by the deadline of the Christmas break. Rival Granada are currently in third position in Group 4, only behind Sevilla F.C. and Real Betis, having only suffered one defeat so far in their campaign, just the same as the pepineros of Group 5.
