Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Granada v Real Betis (including the best match odds).
Granada will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 4-0 La Liga losing effort in their last game against Rayo Vallecano.
In that match, Granada managed 53% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 3 on target. Rayo Vallecano got 19 attempts at goal with 6 on target. Álvaro García (3'), Óscar Trejo (23'), Randy Nteka (43') and Santi Comesaña (58') scored for Rayo Vallecano.
Granada have really struggled up front in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 4 versus opposing sides over their previous 6 outings. In those games, Granada have also seen the tally of goals against them total 13. We will have to see if that trend will be sustained into this next match.
Their previous form shows that Granada:
- have not been beaten in their last 2 league matches at home.
- haven’t won at home in the past 4 league games. Fans are getting restless.
After a loss in their previous game against Real Madrid in La Liga competition, Real Betis will be aiming to make amends here.
In that game, Real Betis managed 51% possession and 11 shots on goal with 6 on target. Real Madrid CF had 13 shots at goal with 3 on target. Dani Carvajal (61') was the scorer for Real Madrid.
The stats don’t lie, and Real Betis have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 6 goals in all. At the back, Real Betis just haven’t been too solid at all.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Real Betis:
- have not registered a win against Granada in games played away from home for the previous 5 league matches. Not the best of away records.
- have not been beaten in their last 6 league matches away from home.

Team News: Granada
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Granada manager Robert Moreno to contend with from of an almost fully healthy squad. Neyder Lozano (Head Injury) is out of contention.
Team News: Real Betis
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the Real Betis boss Manuel Pellegrini to be concerned about. Youssouf Sabaly (Hamstring Injury) misses out for this game.
Our thinking is that Granada may find it difficult to score goals against this Real Betis lineup who will likely just have the edge.
Therefore, we predict a good tussle with a 0-1 advantage for Real Betis at the conclusion of the game.
A close call.
