Real Sociedad - Granada Betting Preview: Hosts should score at least three goals

Our Spanish expert explains why he believes that the San Sebastian side are more than capable of capitalising on the visitors' defensive problems at the Estadio Anoeta on Monday
Without kicking a ball it has been a bad weekend for Granada. Getafe picked up a late point at Camp Nou, Almeria came from behind to beat Betis and Valladolid scraped a victory against Espanyol.

All that means the visitors to the Estadio Anoeta on Monday are just two points above the relegation zone and desperate for a win over a Real Sociedad side that have wrapped up European football next season.

Bet365 price a home win at 4/9 (1.44) while Granada are offered at 11/2 (6.50) and the draw is available at 7/2 (4.50).

Given Granada's shambolic defending in recent weeks it could be tempting to back la Real to get a few goals as they remain one of the strongest sides in the division at home.

The price of 1/2 (1.50) for the Basques to net over 1.5 goals is perhaps a little too short for the average punter, but being a little bolder and backing them to net over 2.5 goals at 6/4 (2.50) could prove profitable.

Granada's back line has been extremely susceptible, conceding three goals at home to Rayo Vallecano last weekend, four at Sevilla the week before and four at Malaga at the start of April.

While recently La Real have not been as prolific as we have come to expect from the free-flowing San Sebastian outfit, they remain extremely attack minded and dangerous.

At home against a relegation threatened, defensively insecure side, there is every chance that they can find the back of the net at least three times.
