Getafe - Granada Betting Preview: Why the hosts should keep another clean sheet

Fresh from another three winning selections over the weekend including a 17/2 value tip, our Spanish expert Phil Kitromilides thinks Granada will be unable to score tonight
Just under 5,000 people turned up to see Getafe play out a goalless draw with Atletico Madrid in their last game at the Coliseum, and the attendance is unlikely to be much greater this evening for the visit of struggling Granada.

Both sides are on a poor run of form with Getafe winless in their last six games in all competitions and Granada boasting a solitary victory from their last seven league matches.

Nevertheless bet365 make Getafe the odds on favorites for a win tonight pricing them at 10/11 (1.91) while Granada can be backed at 3/1 (4.00) and the draw is offered at 5/2 (3.50).

Universally considered as too good to go down, Getafe will look upon this fixture as a must-win game if they are to cement a place in the comfortable obscurity of mid-table and on paper they should overcome the visitors who have the lowest scoring record in the division.

Bearing in mind that Granada have found goals extremely hard to come by the price of 6/4 (2.50) for Getafe to keep a clean sheet looks exceptionally attractive, even more so when you consider they have kept three clean sheets in their last four home matches in all competitions.

Granada meanwhile have failed to score in five of their last seven league matches, making this bet even more appealing.

For a value bet try backing under two goals in the game which is offered at 9/4 (3.25) and which has paid out in three of Getafe's last four home games.
