Sevilla v Granada – Friday 19:45, Sky Sports 3
Sevilla’s season is in danger of petering out: they’re eliminated from all cup competitions, while in the league they sit comfortably in fourth but are out of the title race after a run that has produced just one win in seven. Time is running out for Granada, though, as they’re five points from safety with just six games remaining, and the bizarre appointment of Tony Adams immediately backfired with a heavy 3-0 loss at home to Celta Vigo.
On home soil, Sevilla have won 11 of 15 games this term and only lost to Barcelona, but they’ve suffered draws to bottom-six clubs Gijon and Leganes in their last three, which sums up their frustrating climax to this campaign. However, most recently they put four past 16th-placed Deportivo, and in the past they have usually fared well at home to bottom-six finishers, winning 15 of 18 such matches in the previous three seasons, covering the -2 handicap line in seven of these.
Despite Sevilla’s recent hiccups, it’s still going to a be a tall order for Granada to get anything out of this game, as Adams has inherited La Liga’s worst travellers. They’ve lost 12 of 16 winless road matches, while against the top-six finishers since 2013/14 and the current top six it’s 22 defeats from 23. 17 of these were by at least two clear goals, while 13 were by three or more, therefore we’ll side with Sevilla -2.25 on the Asian Handicap.£10 Free Credit and a £500 Deposit Bonus
