Granada is in box and is forced to travel to Barcelona with a good handful of very sensitive casualties and the doubt of several of its props. Montoro and Puertas will not be penalized, while Diego Martínez confirmed the Rui Silva and Kenedy's casualties due to injury, who join Milla, Duarte and Neva. In addition, Vallejo has very difficult to get there. Yes, they will be in the call Soldado and Germán, who have been between cottons all week and will not face the game in full condition.
The medical part of Granada is endless. Kenedy and Rui Silva have been the last to join the long list of rojiblancas casualties. The Brazilian winger drags a sprained left ankle since the tie against Manchester United and is out. Also Rui Silva, who suffers a muscle elongation.
Conversely, Germán seems recovered from a shoulder sprain and Soldado has had to lift his foot during the week due to an overload That invites you to measure your efforts a lot. “He is not injured, but he has a lot of workload. You have to manage the loads and this is what we have been doing. There are players who are not going to recover, although we hope to recover troops for the next game (on Sunday against Cádiz) ”, Diego Martínez explained at the press conference prior to the match.
Thus, vital players and a fundamental part of the backbone of Granada such as Rui Silva, Duarte, Montoro and Kenedy will have to follow the game on television. With this panorama, Diego Martínez ponders the option of maintaining the line of five behind that he already had on Sunday against Sevilla to try to counter the offensive potential of Koeman's team.
