Malmoe, the last obstacle before the group stage

Granada is one step away from the group stage (19:00, GOAL). The Swedes, only six defeats in their last 30 European matches.


EI Granada is 90 minutes from the group stage, the first major goal of the Nasrid team. Diego Martínez's men have already made it through two previous rounds, but now it's the playoff game and against a mythical from Europe: Malmoe. The Swedish team is a classic of continental competitions, they have more experience and play on their land. But this Granada has set out to continue making history.

It is the last stumbling block for Diego Martínez, who gave a glimpse of the key game against Atlético. He gave rest to many of his important men such as Soldier, Germán, Neva, Gonalons or Montoro to arrive in Sweden fresh. The coach will trust his eleven gala, with the return of all the undisputed. Soldier will once again be the great reference, Montoro will take the handle along with Yangel, who will be one of the few who will repeat as a starter with respect to Atlético, Gonalons will be the broom man and Neva regains her position on the left side. With everyone to conquer Malmoe and leave one of Europe's classics by the wayside.

The team of former Danish player Jon Dahl Tomasson, who went through teams such as Milan, Newcastle or Villarreal, arrives more rolled, with more experience and as the leader of the Swedish league. A team made and with clear ideas that in its three European rounds have passed without conceding a goal and giving good feelings. In fact, since his return to the competition he has only lost three matches of the 28 he has played. In addition, he has the advantage of playing at home, where in European competition he has been intractable: of the last 30 games (since 2013) he has won 18, drawn six and lost another six, but against rivals of substance (Real Madrid, PSG , Atlético, Juventus, Chelsea and Wolfsburg). Height, with an average of 1.84 on his team, and physique can be key.

Granada faces its last hurdle, 90 minutes to be in the group stage ...
