Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Granada and Lokomotiv Tbilisi face each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes on Thursday evening. Granada impressed on their Europa League debut, with the team rolling over Teuta 4-0 on the road, and it is no wonder they are seen as hot favourites to win the round 3 clash. Experienced attacker Roberto Soldado, who found the net in the 4-0 win over Teuta, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
Lokomotiv Tbilisi, on the other hand, did well to beat both Universitatea Craiova and Dynamo Moscow at home to set up a meeting with Granada. However, the Bulgarians are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of claiming a major scalp in the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes showdown. This will be their first ever meeting in a competitive match.
