The Barcelona vs. Granada live stream online and televised soccer matchup from the 2016 La Liga schedule arrives Saturday morning. This could be a lopsided affair in which the Barcelona club is able to take over as the points table leaders for at least a day until current leaders, Atletico Madrid, play their matchup. While Granada is not expected to even compete well due to being second-worst defense in the league, if they managed to keep it close, things could get interesting. The 2016 La Liga live streaming (en vivo) and televised coverage arrives through beIN Sports network this Saturday.
The SoccerWay website reported on Jan. 7 that Barca can boost their title hopes with a big win on Saturday, to return to the top of the standings in La Liga. The team has played one less game than current leaders Atletico Madrid, who will be in action against Celta Vigo on Sunday. Barcelona most recently won 4-1 over Espanyol in the first leg of Copa del Rey. However, the matchup didn’t come without controversy as star Luis Suarez allegedly was part of a clash in the tunnel post-match that could see him banned from the Copa del Rey. He should be available for Saturday’s action in which his team has the dominant advantage.
Granada, which lost this past week to Valencia 4-0 in Copa del Rey action, currently ranks low in the division table at No. 17 with just 17 total points. Barcelona is 22 points ahead of them, and just two behind Atletico Madrid for the division lead. Also up in the discussion is Real Madrid, who is just two points below Barca. All three teams are in action this weekend making for what could be an interesting race to the title as La Liga is approaching its halfway point in the season. A week Granada defense seems to point towards a big victory for Barcelona which should have their fans happy for at least one day in the standings.
The odds for this matchup have Barcelona favored by as much as a whopping -3500 on the moneyline, while Granada is as high as +3800 as the underdogs. A draw is priced at +1950 at some sports books. The goals over/under total for the game is currently at 4-1/2 goals for the game. In terms of future odds, Barcelona FC leads all teams as the favorite to win La Liga at 1 to 5 odds, followed by Real Madrid at 9 to 2 and Atletico Madrid at 9 to 1.
