Granada - Celta Vigo Betting Preview: There's value in backing neither side to keep a clean sheet

With both sides in poor defensive form of late, our man in Spain Phil Kitromilides is backing goals at both ends on Friday evening
Two wins from their last three games have lifted Celta to the relative comfort of 13th place in the La Liga table, yet so tight are things at the bottom that the Galicians remain just three points above the relegation zone.

Granada meanwhile, are two points and two places better off than their opponents, but after recording just one win in five matches, they will be nervously looking over their shoulder at the mounting group of teams just below them.

bet365 price a home win at evens (2.00) while Celta are offered at 13/5 (2.60) to pick up their fourth away of the season. The draw is available at 5/2 (3.50) with the same firm.

The bet worthy of consideration though, is backing both teams to score at 10/11 (1.91), a price made attractive above all because of the defensive record of both sides.

Celta have not kept a clean sheet in the league since 2nd November 2013, conceding in each of their last nine games. Granada for their part have kept just three clean sheets in the 12 matches they have contested at the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes this season.

Both teams though are more than capable of playing some neat stuff upfront and both have shown on occasions that they can be excellent in front of goal but it is defensively where both have struggled to maintain any consistency. Therefore, backing goals at both ends looks to be a solid Friday night selection and is available at a good price with bet365.

Both teams to score at 10/11 (1.91) for 1.5pts with bet365
