Granada lost to Las Palmas 1-0 in their last league match. The home team was reduced to ten players in the 58th minute, but the visitors failed to take advantage, and they even conceded a goal in injury time, losing the game.
Before that match, they suffered defeats to Girona (2-4), Real Sociedad (5-3), Rayo Vallecano (0-2), and Atletico Madrid (3-1) in the league. Their only win so far this season was against Mallorca with a score of 3-2. Currently, they are in second-to-last position on the table with only three points.
Granada’s Miguel Rubio has missed the last two games through injury, and his participation on Thursday is in serious doubt. Meanwhile, fellow defender Jesus Vallejo has not appeared in the last four matches and is not expected to play against Betis.
Gonzalo Villar will be vying for a starting position in central midfield after starting as a substitute in five of Granada’s first six league games this season. Former Real Madrid winger Jose Callejon, who was on the bench last time, hopes to return to the starting XI, possibly replacing either Oscar Melendo or Antonio Puertas. Despite not scoring last weekend, the attacking duo of Lucas Boye and Myrto Uzuni is expected to retain their places up front, with Famara Diedhiou once again starting as a substitute.
In the previous round, Betis played to a 1-1 draw at home against Cadiz. The visiting team took the lead in the 41st minute, and the home team equalized in the 60th minute through Guido Rodriguez. Despite being statistically the better team in this match, they couldn’t complete the comeback.
They currently occupy the tenth position on the table with eight points, two points behind fifth-placed Atletico Madrid. Before the match against Cadiz, they managed to win against Villarreal (2-1) and Rayo Vallecano (1-0), draw with Atletico (0-0), but also suffered defeats to Athletic Bilbao (4-2) and Barcelona (5-0). In the first match of the Europa League group stage, they were defeated by Rangers away with a score of 1-0.
Betis is still without Nabil Fekir, William Carvalho, Rui Silva, and Youssouf Sabaly due to injuries, although the latter three could be in a position to return next month.
Coach Manuel Pellegrini has rotated Juan Miranda and Abner at left-back in the early stages of the season, so the latter could be in line to start over the former on Thursday, joining Hector Bellerin, German Pezzella, and Marc Bartra in the back four. Borja Iglesias will continue to press William Jose for a start up front, while Rodri, Isco, and Ayoze Perez are likely to continue in advanced midfield positions in front of the deep-lying duo Rodriguez and Marc Roca.

Betis is a slight favorite in this match due to better form, head-to-head performance, and their position in the table. However, Granada has the advantage of home turf, and we cannot definitively predict a “clean win” for Betis. Additionally, an open match is expected, so our betting suggestion is a draw or an away win, with at least two goals scored throughout the game.
