Villarreal v Granada Bet Builder Betting Tip:
Villarreal to win
Villarreal looked sharp against Chelsea in their UEFA Super Cup defeat and we think they’ll have enough class to edge out Granada this evening.
The visitors managed only four away victories in La Liga last season and had the worst defensive record in the league – conceding a staggering 65 goals despite finishing 9th.
Both teams to score
The last four games between this pair in La Liga has seen 16 goals banged in with both teams scoring in the past two clashes at El Madrigal.
Granada also ended last season in scoring form on the road – both teams scored in their final 11 away matches last term.
Over 2.5 Granada corners
Granada averaged 3.4 corners per away match in La Liga last season and are facing a Villarreal side that conceded 3.57 corners per home match – 3 or more corners for the visitors tonight looks a solid bet.
Gerard Moreno to have 2 or more shots on target
Moreno is the go-to man for Villarreal and he helped himself to 30 goals in 45 matches across all competitions last season.
He got on the scoresheet against Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup final and he’ll be looking to get off and running in La Liga tonight.
Darwin Machis to have 1 or more shots on target
Machis got on the scoresheet for Granada five times in La Liga last term and he’s averaged 0.7 and 0.8 shots on target per game in his last two La Liga seasons.
He’s likely to lead the line against Villarreal and looks value to get at least one effort on target.
