Real Madrid are back in action after the international break as they travel to face Granada in La Liga.

Carlo Ancelotti's men trail league leaders Real Sociedad by just a point after winning three out of their last four in La Liga following last month's disappointing defeat to Espanyol.

They face a Granada side who sit outside the relegation zone on virtue of goal difference, although they will take confidence from their victory over Sevilla at home last month heading into this weekend.

Here's everything you need to know about the game.

Granada's win over Sevilla at home last month is sure to sharpen the mind's of the Real Madrid players, who are riding the crest of a wave in the last month.

Karim Benzema is in deadly form alongside Vinicius Junior in attack, while the defence has tightened up with the return of Ferland Mendy from injury.

Ancelotti will be hoping for a fast start from his charges with their midweek Champions League trip in mind.

Prediction: Granada 1-3 Real Madrid
