The Granada of Yangel Herrera and Darwin Machís open the sixth day of the La Liga tomorrow (7.00 am) against Sevilla at the Nuevo Los Cármenes stadium. The Spanish squads have the same number of points (7), and they yearn to get a victory that places them at the top of the Leaderboard.
The Nasrids face the game with the intention of staying strong at home and achieving a good result after having won the three league games played at Nuevo Los Cármenes: against Alavés (2-1) and Athletic Club (2-1) in Liga and Georgian Tbilisi Lokomotiv (2-0) in the Europa League.
However, various players from the local squad have been with their national teams and have returned without physical problems, although the Venezuelans, Darwin Machís and Yangel Herrera were the last to join. In addition, they show great wear and tear and possibly start the game from the bench.
On the other hand, Julen Lopetegui's pupils also returned to the white-and-red concentration. The French center-back is completed by the Czech Tomas Vaclík, the Argentines Marcos Acuña and Lucas Ocampos, the Moroccans Yassine Bono, Youssef En-Nesyri and Munir El Haddadi, the Serbian Nemanja Gudelj, the Dutch Luuk de Jong and the Spanish Óscar Rodríguez (sub -21) and Jesús Navas, who has not been able to exercise with his colleagues due to a physical loss presented yesterday; which would give Aleix Vidal the opportunity on the right side.
