Tip Reasoning

Although this isn’t exactly the fiercest of the Andalusian derbies, recent clashes have tended to produce controversy with 6 red cards in the last 4 meetings between the sides. This is another match that has the potential to be a scrappy sort of game and it’s hard to see many goals being scored.

Real Betis have really struggled away from home in recent times. They’ve lost all their away games since Victor Sanchez took charge and are trying to avoid a 6th straight away defeat here. They’ve only netted twice on the road in any competition since October and a lack of goals has been a real problem for Betis wherever they’ve played of late. They’ve failed to score in 4 of their last 6 league games and in 43% of their games overall this term. That figure goes up to 56% when only taking into account their away games and both stats will offer plenty of encouragement to Granada, who could desperately do with a win in their battle to beat the drop.

The visitors though are fairly strong at the back, which has contributed to all of their recent games being fairly low scoring affairs. All of their last 7 matches in La Liga have produced under 2.5 goals, as have 67% of their league games over the course of the season.

As the season has worn on, Granada have also tended to be involved in low-scoring matches after a more open start to the campaign under Paco Jemez, who barely lasted a handful of games. They’ve tightened up at the back since and their 1-0 win over free-scoring Las Palmas in their last home game was proof of that. It was only their 2nd win all season but it is just 1 defeat in 7 games now for Granada at Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes.

7 of their last 8 home games in all competitions have produced under 2.5 goals, which further supports the theory that this won’t produce a great deal of goalmouth action. 70% of Granada home games and 56% of Betis away games this term have seen under 2.5 goals scored and backing Under 2.5 Goals at 7/10 looks the best approach here.
