Sevilla v Granada

-Sevilla are unbeaten since Emery took over as coach, with one cup win, one cup draw and one league draw.

-Granada have also been in good form recently, drawing their last away game (at Getafe) and winning their last home game (against high flying Rayo).

-After a long goal drought, Granada have scored 7 goals in their last 4 games.

-This is an Andalusian derby game.

-Granada beat Sevilla 2-1 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in 2011/12.

-Granada beat Betis 2-1 in Seville earlier this season.

-Seville played Zaragoza in the cup midweek.

-Sevilla will again play in the cup this midweek (Thursday).

-Seville will tonight field their third choice goalkeeper.


Seville, with the momentum Emery carries as a new coach who is undefeated, should win the game. However, given all of the factors listed above (seems no point in re-listing them as I often do!), I’m taking a chance on both teams to score in this derby game.

Worth a small punt: Both teams to score at 2.1 with Boyles.<

If you prefer, seemingly viable alternatives are Sevilla – 1 AH (too short for me at 1.76 with 188bet, but should be at least a push), Granada to score before 79:00 at 2.0 with Bet 365 and Granada + 1.25 at 1.93 with 188bet (likely to only be a half win, I think).
