La Preview: No praise for Piti, Osasuna on the edge and Bielsa’s latest barminess


Betis (4th) v Granada (19th) - 21.30 (all times local)
The tiny, tiny, tiny spark of hope for Granada fans during last weekend's 2-1 home loss to Athletic Bilbao, which saw the Andalusian side fall into the relegation zone, was the return of Dani Benítez. The midfielder had finished a three-month ban for lobbing a bottle at a referee at the end of a tempestuous clash with Real Madrid at the end of the last campaign and is rather happy to be back, albeit apparently with a worryingly hyperactive metabolism. âÂÂThe past three months have been hard. I wouldnâÂÂt wish any footballer that kind of punishment. I understand that the Federation has to punish such severe acts but they have to understand that we are going at 300 heart beats per minute,â explained a very red-faced Benítez.
