La Liga: FC Barcelona vs Granada CF: Predict the Score

Manuel Queimadelos Alonso

A chance to predict the score of this afternoon's La Liga clash between FC Barcelona and Granada CF

FC Barcelona can temporarily extend their lead at the top of La Liga to six points this afternoon, provided that they shake off a growing injury crisis to defeat Granada CF at the Camp Nou (16:00 CET). Having only dropped points in one domestic fixture this campaign, the Blaugrana enter the match as heavy favourites, even if they are missing key players from each area of the field. Amongst those sidelined is Lionel Messi, who picked up an injury in Barça's last fixture against Real Betis and is expected to miss the rest of 2013 as a result.

In his absence, it is expected that either Cesc Fabregas or Neymar will lead the Barcelona frontline, although perhaps Gerardo Martino will be tempted to experiment with Alexis Sanchez through the middle after his superb Man of the Match display in a central position against England at Wembley.

The Chilean was a nuisance all game long, dragging the England defense this way and that en route to a sensational brace. It was the kind of movement that can unlock any opposition defense and in the absence of midfield metronome Xavi Hernandez, it's arguably the perfect foil for what should be a more "direct" Barcelona midfield.

Will Barcelona's injury-hit squad maintain their incredible La Liga record with another win or will Lucas Alcaraz mastermind his side to a third successive win?
