Team Form    

Granada

Granada plummeted to the bottom part of the La Liga table after throwing the white towel to the 10-man Espanyol.

 

According to the club’s top brass, Luis Alcaraz, Granada was unable to take advantage of the red card call. Instead, they showed a side that lacked the “spark and intensity.” Alcaraz also acknowledged Espanyol’s effort, which seemed to prevent them from coming up with a more “collective” solution.

 

The result of the said match was Granada’s third consecutive defeat. They have only won once in their last six (6) matches and currently in danger of participating in the fierce relegation battle.

 

Real Betis

Unable to sustain their winning momentum, Real Betis surrendered to Valencia in a severe pitch thrashing, which ended in a 5-0 score, which made the club’s relegation survival more difficult.

 

Gabriel Calderon admitted that his side was still “not strong enough” to recover from initial blows experienced during pitch encounters. He stressed that the club immediately “collapsed” right after Valencia’s first goal and instead of doing something about it, the Beticos simply allowed the unfortunate event to go on.
Real Betis still sit at the bottom of the La Liga table. They share a similar form with Granada, except that the latter has been more consistent.

 

The Beticos have been conceding an average of three (3) goals during in seven (7) of their last eight (8) matches. Likewise, they were unsuccessful in their last 8 away matches. Therefore, this makes them an easy target for Granada, which is desperate of clinching a crucial win,

 

Prediction: Granada

It is evident that Granada gets the upper hand in this match. As mentioned, they will most likely exploit Real Betis’ poor away form to their advantage.
