Granada - Betis

PICK: under 2,25 @1,97 PINNACLE 3/10

Match between 19th and 12th placed team in LaLiga will be played on Los Carmenes in Granada and it will start at 20:45 on Friday.

Granada is coming to match after disappointing defeat against Eibar (4-0), and they're attacking form is very poor, even if they boosted their attack with Ramos. Today they will miss Kravets, Krhin and Lomban, while Gaston Silva is doubtful. Alcaraz knows that they should not lose points at home and if they will want to get something from match, their defence will be the most important. They kept clean sheet against Las Palmas, which surprises me a little, but I believe that also gives a boost to players.

Betis is 11 points above Granada, but even if they succeeded to snap a point against Barcelona it looks that it will be one average, mid-table finish season for them. They're main, or let's say most dangerous player in this season is Ceballos. He is most creative player in midfield, but he is suspended for match against Granada. With same reason they will miss defender Pezella.

In my opinion will watch one tough match, where no one will want to lose. Both coaches are using system with 5 defenders, while the only difference will probably be in midfield, where Alcaraz is using 4 in the line, while Sanchez plays only with 3 of them and counting on help from full backs. If there won't be any crazy goals from big distance, or any really big mistake of one or other defence, I think that we won't see lot of goals there. Granada need points if they wants to avoid relegation and with Alcaraz they became defensive oriented team and today they are playing against well organised defensive minded team, who is missing important player with offensive role, so once again, we won't see lot of goals here.

FT: 4-1
