Sevilla vs Granada: Adams set for second crushing defeat
Kick Off: 2000, 21/04/2017

New Granada boss Tony Adams had to endure a baptism of fire when losing 3-0 at home to Celta Vigo last week and now faces a tough LaLiga trip to Sevilla.
The visitors can take heart from the fact they have won three straight head-to-head encounters over the past 16 months but on current form it is hard to see them maintaining that hoodoo.
The first of our Sevilla vs Granada betting tips is to back the hosts to win to nil at 6/5.
A Look At Sevilla’s Betting Odds
Sevilla fell three points behind Atletico Madrid in the battle for third place when held to a goalless draw at Valencia last week but there is no disgrace in having to settle for a share of the spoils at the Mestalla.
After a tough run of fixtures, which saw them fail to win in five LaLiga games and crash out of the Champions League at Leicester, that result continued the revival which began with a 4-2 home defeat of Deportivo.
Jorge Sampaoli will now hope to seize this golden opportunity to kick on again at a ground where they have won 11 times this term and lost only to Barcelona.
Perhaps with the quick turnaround in mind, French forward Wissam Yedder was rested last Sunday so he should be fit, fresh and raring to go here, making 7/2 he opens the scoring a tempting bet.
A Look At Granada’s Betting Odds
If Arsenal legend Adams was under any illusions about the size of the job he has taken on, they were no doubt shattered by yet another disappointing display against Celta Vigo.
The fact that the visitors had made wholesale changes to preserve the energy of their first-choice players for Europa League duty only made the manner of defeat even worse.
As expected, Adams has been making all the right noises about knocking his out-of-sorts side into better shape but just one point in seven fixtures has left them facing relegation.
Sevilla really should take advantage and can be backed at 5/4 to win by more than two clear goals.
