The Andalusians need two more points to guarantee their survival in the Primera Division as they prepare to welcome the newly-crowned champions to the Nuevo Los Carmenes

REAL MADRID

Casillas

Granada’s Inigo Lopez is a minor doubt for Saturday’s visit of Real Madrid after sustaining a muscle injury during training.

Fellow defender Diego Mainz is also struggling with a similar problem, while Roberto, Pape Diakhate, Fran Rico and Hassan Yebda are all out.

With the league title already in the bag, Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is likely to give his fringe players some match experience, and there could be long-awaited recalls to the starting line-up for Nuri Sahin, Raphael Varane and Raul Albiol.

Fabio Coentrao and Mesut Ozil are both suspended, but Angel Di Maria returns from a one-match ban.
