Real Madrid’s in a weird spot right now. The good news is that the team’s right where it feels it belongs in La Liga: First place. But the team is also last in its group after its most recent outing, a 2-2 draw against a Club Brugge team many expected Real to beat handily. Los Blancos return home on Saturday, facing a Granada team that *checks notes* is second in La Liga after seven matches.
Here’s everything you need to know to live stream Real Madrid vs. Granada, including what to watch for on the pitch.

Real Madrid vs. Granada: Preview
Real Madrid dueled to a 2-2 draw with Club Brugge in midweek Champions League play—a Club Brugge reduced to 10 men by match’s end, no less—after grinding out a scoreless draw against Atleti last weekend. Sergio Ramos and Casemiro provided goals in the Champions League match; any concerns Real had about production from purely attacking players heading into that match have to remain.
Granada’s unbeaten in its last five matches, including a 1-0 win over Leganes last weekend, with Jose Antonio Rodriguez Diaz scoring the lone goal. Granada’s a bit of a surprise to be this far up the table this far into the season, but it doesn’t seem like it’s just a lucky draw: Granada’s recent run of results includes a 2-0 win over Barcelona and a 4-4 draw with Villarreal. Real Madrid will prove an interesting test of the question, “Is Granada for real?”
