Granada tonight gives a new pulse to its history

Those of Diego Martínez want to continue expanding their European feat. Luis Suárez, Milla and Soldado, who also did not participate in the last training session, are ruled out. Naples traveled with eight casualties.


The illusion does not understand injuries or medical parts. Nor of grueling schedules like Granada, which already has 37 games in its backpack this season. In Granada there is no room for regrets. Not while the European dream that Diego Martínez and his footballers began to build last year is still alive and that is giving the club and its fans the brightest moments of their existence. The Nasrid team intends to gain a new pulse in its own history and keeping the feat on its feet requires the greatest of the challenges faced so far: knocking down Naples and doing it with several key casualties (follow the game live on .

Luis Suárez, Soldier (he did not go out to train yesterday with the team either) and Milla are ruled out. Yes, Montoro will be there and there is also a certain optimism regarding Germán, although in his case it would be very fair. Gonalons and Yangel, still far from their best physical condition, aim for the eleven.

Diego will hide his cards until the end, but it will correspond to his daggers, Machís and Kenedy, lead the rojiblancas hopes in search of a result that will allow them to travel to Italy with options to go to the second round. "They will be wrong if they underestimate us," warns the Venezuelan winger, who is highly challenged to continue making noise with Granada on the old continent.

Naples, after many weeks of poor results and with Gattuso much discussed, arrives revitalized by the victory achieved this past weekend against Juventus. The Italians also travel with numerous and important casualties: Ospina, Hysaj, Manolas, Koulibaly, Demme, Mertens, Lozano and Petagna. Yes they will be in the eleven Fabián and Insigne, scorer against Juve. Gattuso wants to take at least the spoils of the goal away from home and Diego Martínez appeals to the emotional aspect to be able to dismay his men ("we have to recover the spirit of the Second Year") and put Naples on the ropes. Eternal fight is the dominant motto in Granada. Stop believing and dreaming is prohibited in Los Cármenes.


Bajas above: Diego Martínez has just enough troops in attack. Without Luis Suárez and Roberto Soldado, injured, Jorge Molina remains the only striker in the first available squad.

Confidence: The weekend's victory against Juventus has strengthened Naples and Gattuso, who was highly questioned and whose future was hanging by a thread.

Clean sheet: Granada have conceded 15 goals in their last eight official games. Keeping a clean sheet at home is usually a key aspect in playoffs at this level.

Insigne: He scored the winning goal against Juventus and will assume, together with Belgian Osimhen, a large part of Napoli offensive responsibility.Aces to follow

Machís: The Venezuelan has burned this game and Granada needs his best version to dream of going to the second round.

Fabián: The battle in the core seems key and the Sevillian is the engine of Naples. It has returned to a good level after overcoming the coronavirus.
