Sevilla vs Granada CF Prediction & Betting tips
Friday evening, in the Pizjuan, the Andalusian regional village between Granada and Seville is on the playing calendar. As a matter of course, Sevilla is the top-rated favorite, even though the red-whites are not busy in recent weeks. Granada is fighting against degradation and hopes to be able to grab her last straw straw.
With only one victory in the last eight official matches, the battery of Seville seems empty. “The elimination in the eighth finals of the Champions League has greatly affected our morale,” said Mercado defender this week. Nevertheless, the Andalusians with 62 points out of 31 play rounds are busy on their second best season from the club history. Only in the season 2014-2015 the red whites had a point to pick up a point. In addition, Sevilla still has eight points ahead of number five Villarreal and is therefore in the Champions League qualifier for next season.
Still, Seville is in danger of paying a heavy price for her success season. Technical director Monchi has announced that after this season he will leave Pizjuan behind, but Sampaoli is already threatening to leave the club after almost a season. According to the Argentinian press, it is only a matter of time before being presented as the new coach of his country of Argentina. The names of Valverde (Athletic Bilbao) and Berizzo (Celta de Vigo) are already singing in the Pizjuan. According to chief executive Iborra, these rumors are not an item in the locker room: “Of course, we want Sampaoli to stay, but when he leaves, that’s simply part of the football game.” For the time being, Sampaoli is still a coach of Seville. This weekend he will be able to use Nasri and Rami, which have been completely restored. Well, everybody in the world, Vitolo is in the lapper basket.
Probable setup Sevilla
Sergio Rico; Escudero, Pareja, Rami, Mariano; Crane Vitter, NZonzi; Sarabia, Nasri, Correa; Jovetic
Granada CF :
In an extreme attempt to wake up the team and escape from degradation, Granada recently appointed former top defender Tony Adams as a new coach. The desired shock effect lasted, however, because last weekend, the red-whites went out of their way to their own public with no less than 0-3 below Celta de Vigo, because of its European obligations, they found out with a B-team. With only six rounds of play and a seven-point league in the seventeenth place, degradation seems almost inevitable for the vice-hedge officer.
At his appointment Adams made a passionate and fierce impression, but in his first duel as a coach of Granada bar was little to be seen on the field. He brought eleven foreigners to Celta de Vigo and even eleven different nationalities, a unicum in the Spanish Primera Division. They say that the football language is universal, but Granada played like loose sand. Apparently Adams finds that there are not enough foreigners in the Nuevo Los Carmenes, as he may bring three English to Andalusia. Richardson and Reo-Coker are currently on trial, while Jagielka may also have ears to the Spanish sun. The players themselves do not seem to be too busy about the possible progressive degradation. Former Ajacied Cuenca made this week acquainted with El Pacificador, a man who tries to accomplish world peace by going over his tailor-made costume (click here, NSFW). There are still men with balls in Granada, but unfortunately Los Nazaries fans are not on the field.
Probable setup Granada
Ochoa; Hector, Gaston, Saunier, Foulquier; Carcela, Uche, Krhin, Pereira; Ponce, Kravets
