THE TEAM NEWS

REAL BETIS

  • Betis succumbed to defeat against local rivals Sevilla on Thursday night in their first game back following the enforced break in play and they will look to bounce back now and get a result against Granada.
  • Boss Rubi has lost Sidnei to injury so Feddal will likely come into the back four and there could be further changes if the manager decides to rotate his pack for this game.
  • Loren Moron, Joaquin, Guardado and Edgar Gonzalez could all come into the starting line-up as they manage the fitness of their players and Rubi can afford to do that right especially as they are relatively comfortable in mid-table.

Predicted line-up (4-4-1-1): Joel Robles; Emerson, Bartra, Feddal, Alex Moreno; Joaquin, Edgar Gonzalez, Guardado, Canales; Fekir; Loren Moron

Unavailable: Juanmi (Injured), William (Injured), Sidnei (Injured), Javi Garcia (Injured)

Doubtful:

GRANADA

  • Granada’s superb season continues as they come off an excellent 2-1 win over Getafe and boosted their outside hopes of reaching the European places as they sit in ninth place in La Liga.
  • The win over Getafe came at some expense as Herrera picked up a booking that sees him suspended here while Gonalons picked up a knock and he is ruled out here so that weakens their midfield even further.
  • Antonio Puertas is back from suspension so he is likely to return out wide while Foulquier may be asked to move into central midfield in the absence of both Gonalons and Herrera.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Rui Silva; Victor Diaz, Domingos Duarte, German Sanchez, Carlos Neva; Antonio Puertas, Foulquier, Eteki, Machis; Soldado, Carlos Fernandez

Unavailable: Quini (Injured), Lozano (Injured), Alex Martinez (Injured), Gonalons (Injured), Vadillo (Injured), Koybasi (Injured), Montoro (Injured), Herrera (Suspended)

Doubtful:

THE KEY STATS

  • Real Betis have won only 1 of their last 9 matches in all competitions
  • Real Betis have scored at least 2 goals in 6 of their last 7 home league matches
  • Real Betis have scored during the first half in 8 of their last 9 home league matches
  • Real Betis have kept only 1 clean sheet in their last 21 home league matches
  • Granada are unbeaten in their last 6 matches in all competitions
  • Granada have won only 1 of their last 11 away league matches
  • Granada have scored the first goal in 5 of their last 6 La Liga matches against Real Betis
  • Granada have conceded a goal during the first half in 5 of their last 7 away league matches
  • There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 4 of Granada’s last 5 away league matches

THE PREDICTION

Betis are not entirely safe yet so they will be keen to pick something up here after they lost the derby to Sevilla last Thursday night. They come up against an in-form albeit weakened Granada side who are flying with confidence still. They are enjoying an outstanding season and even if they are missing some players, they are playing with great belief and freedom right now. Betis however will be tough to beat on home turf and motivated to bounce back after their derby loss. That along with more favourable team news sees Betis favoured draw no bet here.
