Real Betis v Granada - Friday 19:45, Sky Sports 3
Betis have picked up four points from their three games so far as they look to build on their 10th place finish last term in what was their first season back in La Liga. Granada, meanwhile, look set to have another relegation battle on their hands after picking up just one point and they’ve not finished higher than 15th since their promotion in 2010/11.
Betis were the lowest scorers in the division last season but they’ve been in the goals this term, thanks largely to the form of veteran Ruben Castro, who has netted four times already. The 35-year-old is a tempting 5.25 to be the first goalscorer here.to win.
Granada have lost 12 of their 20 road games since the start of last season, struggling at the back as they’ve conceded an average of 2.2 goals in these games, with just one clean sheet. Indeed, their record when travelling to sides between 8th and 13th in the last couple of seasons is just W1-D4-L7 and since three of the four defeats last season were by more than one goal, we’re going to back Betis -1 on the handicap to continue their newfound scoring form.
