Real Betis vs Granada prediction

Both teams recorded much needed triumphs and both teams will be looking to continue the positive run in their forthcoming clash. Most of their encounters were real nail bitters, which is why we expect an interesting match this Sunday.

Betis struggle at Benito Villamarin

Los Beticos continued their escape from the danger zone with a magnificent triumph at the hands of Espanyol (3-0). Ruben Castro opened the game with an early netting, German Pezzela doubled the advantage and Juan Vargas closed the deal with a second-half free-kick. Betis are now on a five-game undefeated run, with a solid, five-point cushion between them and the danger zone. Juan Merino hopes his team will repeat the success form their last encounter at Benito Villamarin, but, the fact is los Verdiblancos struggle in front of their own supporters, with a single triumph since September (D5 L5). The biggest problem is their toothless attack, which managed to score more than one goal just once since the beginning of the season. If Juan Merino’s charges continue with such performances, their fans are unlikely to witness a spectacle this time out.

Benito Villamarín outfit will be without the likes of Foued Kadir, Heiko Westermann, Martin Montoya and Cristiano Piccini, who are all sidelined due to injuries.

Granada close to escaping the red zone

For the first time this season, Granada managed to record back-to-back triumphs in La Liga. After defeating Deportivo last weekend (1-0), Jose Gonzalez’s charges took another step towards league survival by emerging victorious from the relegation six-pointer against Sporting Gijon (2-0). Youssef El-Arabi and Isaac Success secured the entire pray for their team, which now leapfrogged Sporting in the overall standings, and the only reason they are still beneath the dotted line is their inferior goal difference. The Nazaríes have serious problems in their offensive line, especially when playing away from home. Mere three goals in their six matches on the road are the biggest proof of how impotent their attack is. Truth being told, in their last couple of matches, the Andalusians stated they still know how to win and if they continue with such displays, Jose Gonzalez could expect yet another positive result this time out.

Jose Gonzales has no fresh injury concerns for the upcoming clash against los Beticos. Javi Marquez is still recovering from his calf muscle strain and remains in the recovery room.

Quick Facts

  • Los Beticos are undefeated in their last six La Liga games
  • Juan Merino’s men have won just once on home soil since September (D5 L5)
  • Los Verdiblancos scored more than once in just one home fixture this season
  • Granada boast a 2-1-2 record against Real Betis at Benito Villamarín
  • El Grana recorded six defeats in their previous seven away matches

Real Betis vs Granada betting tip

This match is as equally important for both teams, and I sincerely do not expect them to go storming to attack. I reckon we are up for a hard, low-scoring battle, in which a single goal could solve the question of who will win the match. This is why I do not believe we will se lot of fireworks in this clash.

Tip: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 1.77 (10/13) @888sport
