Match Preview

Granada returned to La Liga (LL) with a pulsating draw at Villarreal (4-4) that saw them net three times beyond the hour mark. When bringing last season’s later Segunda División results into play, each of Granada’s last seven competitive matches have separated the sides by a margin of under 1.5 goals.
Their record from those seven matches is: W3, D4. Both home wins in that sequence saw the same pattern, with Granada winning the first half 2-0 before losing the second 1-0.
Opponents Sevilla got off to a winning start last weekend, and for the second LL game in succession, they won both halves 1-0. In a further twist, both of their preceding league games have seen each goal arrive in the final five minutes of its respective half (excluding added-time).
This trend is given further potential longevity by the fact that five of Sevilla’s last six halves of LL football on the road have seen exactly one goal either way.
Furthermore, six of the last seven goals (either way) across Sevilla’s three LL away games against promoted sides in 2018/19 came in the final 15 minutes of play.
Players to watch: Midfielder Antonio Puertas netted Granada’s final equaliser on the opening weekend. Only one of his last five goals has come any earlier than the 75th minute.
Visiting winger Nolito scored Sevilla’s killer second goal last weekend. His last three league goals have come beyond the 75th minute of play.
Stat attack: Granada are unbeaten in three LL home encounters with Sevilla (W2, D1), winning the first half by a one-goal margin each time.
Nine of Sevilla’s last 11 LL away games have seen the first goalscorer win with a clean sheet.
Though favourites here, Sevilla’s league record as an away-day favourite last season was underwhelming (W4, D3, L6).
