Nasrids Heading for More Misery under Adams

Tony Adams lost his first match in charge of Granada.

Malaga inflicted huge damage to Barcelona’s Spanish Primera Division title challenge and one thinks that the Anchovies will put Granada on the brink of relegation on Tuesday.

Opposing Granada at every opportunity became part of one’s Spanish Primera Division punting philosophy once the Nasrids appointed former Arsenal defender Tony Adams as its interim coach. Adams was a champion player but his managerial record is nothing short of abysmal and he has the thankless task of trying to get Granada’s band of loanees to avoid the dreaded drop from one of Europe’s toughest leaves. Granada has taken just one point from its last eight Spanish Primera Division matches and that was a draw versus 16th-placed Deportivo.

That Granada lost only 0-2 at Andalusia rival Sevilla last time was a miracle when one looks at the statistics of the Spanish Primera Division game – the White and Reds had 28 attempts, 16 of which they registered on target. Granada is sleepwalking to Spanish Primera Division relegation and one must oppose the Nasrids when odds greater than even money are available about them losing under the leadership of Adams. Malaga is trading at odds of +125  with several bookmakers, including Bet365, Marathonbet and William Hill.

According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Malaga holds a 12-3-4 edge over Granada. Normally one would have second thoughts about backing a Malaga team that failed to win its Spanish Primera Division home match against Granada but the Anchovies boast a sufficiently big collateral form lead and, at the end of the day, the Nasrids are an almighty mess heading for the league’s exit door. Malaga has won three of its last four Spanish Primera Division games, beating Gijon, Barcelona and Valencia without conceding a goal in any of those matches.

On what is a extremely tricky Spanish Primera Division coupon, one is picking Malaga to get the better of Granada in an Andulsia derby. One’s other midweek Spanish Primera Division selections are Real Madrid and Sevilla.

Last weekend’s El Clasico loss means that Real Madrid cannot afford any more mistakes if it is going to claim the Spanish Primera Division championship – the Meringues are level on 75 points with Barcelona and they have a game in hand over their greatest rivals but Barca owns the head-to-head edge and that is the first tiebreaker. Real is available at odds of -238  with 188Bet to post an away victory over Deportivo and, given the considerable difference in quality between the Spanish Primera Division’s top and bottom sides, one is willing to back the Meringues at their fairly short price.

According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Real Madrid enjoys a 16-2-0 lead over Deportivo so Super Depor have not outperformed the Meringues versus any of the top-flight teams. Real should win on Wednesday.

Sevilla is even shorter odds than Real Madrid to register a Spanish Primera Division success 23 hours after Deportivo hosts the Meringues. Celta, which is focusing on the UEFA Europa League in which it will face Manchester United over two legs for a spot in the final, has Marcelo Diaz banned for a Spanish Primera Division match that means a lot more to Sevilla than the Sky Blues. Sevilla is probably going to qualify for the UEFA Champions League but the White and Reds would like to overtake Atletico Madrid and snatch Spanish Primera Division third place because it would grant them automatic admission to the European event’s group phase.

According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Sevilla, which is trading at odds of -278  with Betway, holds a 10-5-4 lead over Celta and it would be fair and accurate to say that the White and Reds have outperformed the Sky Blues most of the time when the respective sides have met the big teams.
