Can Granada pile more misery on Betis?
<div><h2>Granada vs Real Betis</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Sunday, October 27, at Los Carmenes</strong></a></p><p>Newly promoted Granada have made a superb start to life back in the top flight and they climbed up to third in the table with a 1-0 win against Osasuna on Friday. They have plenty of time to rest and prepare for the visit of Real Betis, who have endured a poor campaign thus far. Los Beticos would appear to have a stronger team on paper than Granada, but they are leaking goals and they are winless in three matches. That leaves them marooned in the relegation zone and they look low on confidence.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Veteran striker Roberto Soldado leads the line for this impressive Granada side. He has only managed one goal this season, but he has provided two assists and his hold-up play has been crucial to Granada’s attacks. Their top scorer is Antonio Puertas, who has three goals, while defender Domingos Duarte has scored twice. Both men are doubts for this game against Real Betis, which could hurt Granada’s chances of victory.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Real Betis had an impressive transfer window this summer as they managed to sign Borja Iglesias from Espanyol and Nabil Fekir from Lyon. Scoring goals has not been too much of a problem for Betis, but they are saddled with the worst defensive record in the league. They have conceded 19 goals in nine games, which is why they are languishing in 18<sup>th</sup> place. Questions must be asked of former Barcelona defender Marc Bartra and Algerian international Aissa, who have formed an unconvincing partnership at the heart of the Betis defence.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Betis have a dreadful away record and that might inspire punters to back a Granada win at 2.40 (7/4) with Unibet. Diego Martinez’s men have won three of their four home games so far this season, while Betis have lost three of their four away matches, so that looks like a tempting option. Another interesting bet is both teams to score. It might be a little risky, as Granada have only conceded once in their four home matches. However, Betis have only failed to score in one match this season, and they have the firepower to get on the score sheet in this game. They have only kept one clean sheet this season, and Granada have also scored in eight of their nine matches so far, so they should have little trouble finding the back of the net on Sunday.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Both teams to score at 1.80 (4/5) with William Hill</a></strong></p></div>
