Real Betis vs. Granada – prediction, team news, lineups

Real Betis is looking to make a comeback after facing two consecutive losses. They’ll be back in action in La Liga, playing at home against Granada on Saturday night.

Real Betis recently suffered a 1-0 defeat to Alaves in the Copa del Rey. On the other hand, Granada secured a crucial 2-0 victory against Cadiz in their last La Liga match, providing them with a much-needed boost. So, it’s a game to watch as both teams aim to turn things around.

Real Betis will be without Sergi Altimira and Hector Bellerin for the upcoming match, both sidelined due to injuries. Additionally, Juan Miranda, Guido Rodriguez, Nabil Fekir, Claudio Bravo, and Marc Bartra are all uncertain to play due to fitness concerns.

Furthermore, Chadi Riad, Youssouf Sabaly, and Abde Ezzalzouli won’t be available for selection as they are set to participate in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Expect several changes from the lineup that faced Alaves in the Copa del Rey. Players like William Carvalho, Abner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, and Borja Iglesias are likely to make a return to the starting XI.

On the Granada side, Raul Fernandez might miss the game due to a muscular issue, while Ricard Sanchez is suspended following a booking against Cadiz. Jesus Vallejo could step in at right-back, but otherwise, the lineup is expected to remain unchanged from their last match.

In the attacking third, Lucas Boye is set to join Uzuni, with Zaragoza likely to play on the right. It’s shaping up to be an interesting match with both teams dealing with various player availability issues.

Real Betis possible starting lineup:
Silva; Ruibal, Pezzella, Papastathopoulos, Abner; Carvalho, Roca; Diao, Isco, Perez; Iglesias

Granada possible starting lineup:
Batalla; Vallejo, Mendez, Miquel, Neva; Zaragoza, Ruiz, Villar, Carreras; Uzuni, Boye
