Three crucial points up for grabs at El Molinon

Only a single point separates Sporting and Granada going into a game that could prove crucial in both teams' quests to avoid relegation.

Team News: 

- R. Sporting: Fernando Amorebieta and Borja Viguera (injured); Pichu Cuellar, Nacho Cases and Duje Cop (suspended). 

- Granada CF: Héctor Hernández and Adrián Ramos (injured); Mubarak Wakaso (suspended). 

Match Facts: 

- R. Sporting (19th, 18 pts):

-R. Sporting have only managed one win in their last eight league clashes with Granada CF (4 draws and 3 defeats). That win came in October 2011 when they beat the Andalusians 2-0 at El Molinon.

 -Sporting must remain focussed late in the game. The Asturians are the only LaLiga side yet to win any points in the final 15 minutes of a match, a crucial time in an evenly-matched competition like LaLiga Santander where many games are decided at the death.

- Granada CF (18th, 19 pts): 

-Granada and Malaga CF are the only two LaLiga Santander sides yet to win away from home this season, a statistic which Granada are eager to rectify on their trip to Gijon. 

-Jeremi Boga has played more minutes without conceding a single free kick than any other player this 2016/17 LaLiga Santander season: a total of 1,072 minutes. That is almost four times more than the player just behind him, Gael Kakuta (269 minutes).
