Zaragoza hasn’t won in 10 games and now stands only one point clear of the relegation zone, and there are very few reasons to be optimistic about their prospects. Granada is in a very similar situation with one point more than their opponents and it is only fair to call this fixture a 6-points game.
Match: Zaragoza vs Granada
Bet: Granada Double Chance
Odds: Betfair 1.80
The ones who will pay a lot of attention to this match are the fans of the aforementioned teams, and the other five teams that are trying to avoid relegation. If Granada takes advantage of their opponents terrible form and secures a rare away victory, they would extend the gap separating them from the danger zone to five points. It is a frightening scenario for Zaragoza, but not an entirely unlikely one given the fact that the hosts miss seven players due to suspension or injury.
The defensive has been crippled by all of these absentees and the fact that both goalkeepers are either unfit to play or serve a two game suspension, doesn’t help either. Alcolea is the third choice for coach Jimenez but his first appearance didn’t go well as Zaragoza bowed to Getafe by 2-0. Now they return home for a match against an opponent that they have dominated throughout the years, but head to head history matters much less than the lack of a competitive squad.
Granada could use a point and although this looks like an extraordinary opportunity of striking a devastating blow to a rival, the visitors will not risk too much up front. Punters should settle for the 1.80 odds available at Betfair and bet on the visitors not to lose, to minimize the risks.
