Granada CF vs Villarreal Prediction & Betting tips
As a rising star, Granada CF is preparing to declare war on the established teams in La Liga. For example, the Andalusian team, which has won 13 out of 15 points in the last five home games, has a great chance of going past the Submarino Amarillo with another home three. A qualification for a European competition would become more and more likely.
Conversely, the guests from the Spanish east coast also have the chance to defeat their pursuers by taking an away win and attacking higher up. After all, the yellow-blue are missing only three points to the Champions League starting place.
A remarkable assessment, because in Granada against Villarreal, the forecast must take into account the home strength of the promoted team, who won nine of the 14 home games at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes. The guests from the Spanish east coast have already suffered eight defeats in the 15 encounters in foreign places.
For these and other reasons, which we show in the following analysis, we think it is most sustainable to play against Villarreal Tip 1 at Granada, which we protect against the risk of point sharing as a “draw no bet”. Further betting recommendations for the 30th matchday of the highest Spanish division are available in the La Liga betting tips category.
Granada CF continues these days exactly where the small traditional Andalusian club stopped before the break: stir up the top division in the country. Not only did the promoted team take a 2-1 win over the Champions League aspirant Getafe CF in the first home game after the involuntary interruption and was also unbeaten in the fifth match at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes.
Also in the away game in the Andalusian derby at Betis Sevilla, the Nazaríes kidnapped an important point on Monday evening in a 2-2 draw with a Soldado goal in added time. In total, there is now a series of six league games in a row without defeat.
It is therefore no wonder that the newcomer, who in the eyes of most experts, along with Mallorca RCD, was considered a favorite for the direct relegation with his relatively small budget, has nothing to do with the relegation battle. The lead to the first relegation zone is already 17 points.
Conversely, the Matagigantes can even dream of topping their historically best position in a final table of the highest Spanish league. “El Graná” has twice finished sixth so far, with just four points missing at the moment. It is all the more remarkable that at Granada against Villarreal the odds of the bookmakers speak against the underdog from southern Spain.
After all, the home values are also right. Finally, Diego Martínez’s team scored 13 out of 15 possible points. In the home table, the Nazaríes even ranked fifth because they have won nine of their 15 matches at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes and, above all, only conceded nine goals at home. Even the home powers of Barcelona and Real Madrid have already conceded more goals in their own stadium in league operations.
Last but not least, there is also a coherent momentum. Not only have the Matagigantes not lost for six match days, they are also one of the most successful Spanish teams in 2020. Only FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and today’s guest Villarreal CF have scored more points in the 2020 calendar year. Against this background, the newcomer faces a trend-setting game.
Villarreal CF is also doing very well these days, which is already evident from the fact that the point yield in the 2020 calendar year will only be topped by Barca and Real. So the Submarino Amarillo is heading on the best course towards the Champions League. In fourth place, there are currently only three points missing.
However, there could also be a quick crash into midfield, which is why the kickers from the Spanish east coast have to make more effort with the ambitious climber from Andalusia.
The men of Javier Calleja have so far been able to make a complete restart. With three defeats in a row, the yellow-blue had said goodbye to the interruption before they could report back strongly with two 1-0 victories over the relegation-threatened teams Celta Vigo and RCD Mallorca.
Particularly positive is the fact that the defensive hardly allowed anything twice in series. In both games there were only three opposing shots on goal. That certainly speaks for giving a tip on a rather low goal game in Granada against Villarreal.
However, there are a few key factors. So, of course, both teams want the threesome to be able to pursue their ambitions in the tight table. It should be considered critical that the Submarino Amarillo had difficulties several times during the season trying to get a draw on weak days. In the end, the points were split only five times.
With 13 wins from 29 games, the yellow-blue have already lost eleven times. To put this figure in relation: A team like Valladolid, which currently holds 14th place with 12 points less on the account, only suffered ten losses.
Villarreal is thus to blame for a lack of constancy, because of which there was mostly either victory or defeat. An observation that is particularly true of the away games. After 15 games in the distance so far, there are six wins, but also eight defeats with just one draw.
