Granada boss Diego Martinez reckons his club and Barcelona are “in different universes” ahead of Saturday’s La Liga fixture at Los Carmenes.

Barcelona head into the match searching for their first away win of the season and will be big favourites to pick up three points against the newly-promoted side.

However, Martinez says he has belief his team can pull off a shock result although he knows it will be a tough challenge.

“A lot of things differentiate Granada and Barcelona, we both belong to very different universes,” he said.

”I visualise the match in a positive way, I see us winning, although I’m aware of the difficulties that come with facing one of the best teams in the world.

”We’re going to have to work a lot, run very hard and squeeze the maximum out of ourselves, but we have a belief that anything can happen.”

Granada have enjoyed a decent start to the season back in the Spanish top flight. They kicked off with an entertaining 4-4 draw at Villarreal, were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Sevilla but have gone on to pick up wins against Espanyol and Celta Vigo.
