VLD vs GRD Dream11 : Granada look to consolidate a spot in the top 4 when they go at loggerheads against languishing Real Valladolid today
For Granada, the start to life in La Liga 2019-20 couldn’t have been any more succulent. One of the most impressive outfits in the opening exchanges of the league, the side find themselves as up as third place after five gameweeks, a position they’ll be looking to consolidate ahead of today’s imminent clash.
The first gameweek to see matches being conducted in the middle of the week, Real Valladolid and Granada will be beginning proceedings in gameweek six starting today. With three wins in succession, Granada will be making an advent into today’s clash quietly confident of getting another in their kitty, especially due to the besmirched identity of their opponents.
Where Granada have been reaping the labours of hard earned results and eye pleasing football, Valladolid on the other hand have failed to impress, finding themselves in 15th place with just the one win from five encounters. Ever since their win in their league opener, the side have gone onto lose the two and draw the two matches apiece, the most recent being a 2-0 defeat by Villarreal in the league.
Elsewhere, for Granada, the league truly began after gameweek 2. Despite registering no wins after their first set of matches, the side remained undeterred, quickly addressing their gameplan to cover the gaping holes which were pegging them back to emerge as a resurgent outfit. They defeated Barcelona 2-0 in their previous match, a win which manifests how enigmatic the side have been this season, a result they’ll be looking to use as a defining moment to their season.
VLD vs GRD Match Prediction
It’s not just the previous win against Barcelona which makes Granada firm favourites for today’s match but the fact that they have scored 7 goals in their previous three matches without conceding a single one in return. The side are one of the most complete sides in the league at the moment, an outfit which will find it extremely easy to blow apart a languishing Valladolid side.

VLD vs GRD Dream11 Goal-Keeper
There was a burning need to decide on four picks from Real Valladolid, leading us to their goal-keeper Jordi Masip as the first pick from the side. The likelihood for a cleansheet is far from achievable for the side but with Granada set to unleash an absolute onslaught today, he’ll find himself engaged in a flurry of shots to give us some good save points.
VLD vs GRD Dream11 Defenders
With Granada having kept three cleansheets in succession now, it was only fair for us to get in an entire trivalent of picks from their side for this encounter. The side have been extremely well-versed at the back, showing cohesion in defence along with positional awareness and acumen to shut out attacks.
A Valladolid side who have failed to snap out their inability to muster up goals should be easy to contain for Granada, seeing us go in with their fullbacks Victor Diaz and Carlos Neva along with CB German Sanchez for today’s match. We also have the one player coming in from Valladolid in the form of Mohammed Salisu.
VLD vs GRD Dream11 Midfielders
The side’s goal scorer against Barcelona and their leading scorer as well, Granada’s Ramon Azeez was always going to canter his way into our setup for today’s clash. The midfielder has been quick to lay down the marker this season, impressing with his ability to traverse past defenders and layup the ball for his counterparts, a monologue we envisage seeing him add to his tally today.
He gets company in a trio of other picks from the side as well with Yangel Herrera and the two wide attacking players, Darwin Machis and Antonio Puertas with the side set to rip apart Valladolid today and excel in their euphoric attacking sojourns. The one player comes in from Valladolid as well in the form of leftwinger Oscar Plano.
VLD vs GRD Dream11 Strikers
We have Valladolid’s top goal scorer, Sergi Guardiola picked up by us over here. If there side are to have any chance of leaving footprints in today’s match, the striker will need to be a menace for Granada’s defenders, something he’s shown he’s capable of doing till now.
Captain And Vice-Captain for VLD vs GRD Dream11
Azeez is our captain for today’s match whilst Machis is being made the vice-captain.
