There are no reasons for Real Madrid not to get all three points at stake. Benítez and his men definitely have the better roster, the players are in good shape and Granada simply aren't very good, so the Spanish coach will be able to rotate his squad and give his reserves some good minutes.
With Bale and Ramos out injured, Varane and Jesé are looking to start the game. Reports from Spain suggest that Kovacic could replace Bale behind the striker but the Croatian player might be set to play in Modric's spot if Benítez does rotate the squad. That would keep both Kovacic and Jesé motivated as they haven't been much involved throughout the start of the season.
Keylor Navas could break Real Madrid's record for consecutive clean sheets with 5 if Real Madrid manage not to concede a single goal against Granada. If they do that, Real should get the three points.
