Real Madrid hope to make it three La Liga wins in a row ahead of Sunday’s visit to Granada.

If Real Sociedad fail to beat Valencia, the third-placed visitors could go top of the La Liga table. They currently have 27 points from 12 games, leaving them one point behind current leaders Sevilla – who drew 2-2 with Alaves on Saturday.

Granada, meanwhile, have endured a tough start under new manager Robert Moreno. Two wins from 12 games (D5 L5) have left them down in 17th in the standings. The only thing keeping them out of the relegation zone is goal difference.
