Given that both teams are struggling for form will Granada be targeting this match to get themselves back on track?

Since both teams are struggling for form and it’s our final home game of the year, then we’ll certainly be hoping we can win this game. Home games are our best chance to cut the gap on the teams above us, so I’d be hoping we go for it tonight. However, that old cliché of the new manager bounce could work in your favour. It’ll be a good match.

Where have Granada’s struggles lied this season?

Easy answer, we didn’t strengthen enough in the window. We struggled to get out of Segunda and it’s pretty much the same squad. The defence and goalkeeping has also been poor this season. We lost Samu Omorodion at the start of the season which was a disaster. Hopefully we can sign some much needed players in January.

Having lost against Celta Vigo on the weekend, how important is it that Granada bounce back with a strong performance?

It’s massive that we don’t lose tonight. I’d be happy with 4 points from the next two games (Sevilla at home and Cadiz at home), but I’d be delighted if we managed to beat Sevilla.

Who have been Granada’s standout players this season?

The obvious answer would be Bryan Zaragoza, who’s just earned himself a big money move to Bayern, but I have to say I’ve been impressed by Gonzalo Villar this season. He’s created so many goals and is a big miss when he’s not playing.
