Monday Football Tips: Back 4/1 fouls double for Granada v Girona

Granada host high-flying Girona in La Liga

Paul Higham is looking for fouls in La Liga on Monday night as high-flying Girona visit struggling Granada.

Girona have been as impressive as they have surprising in their unbeaten start to the season, which they now take to a Granada side who have struggled back in the top flight.

Granada have just one win this season and have the worst defence in the division with 12 goals conceded seeing them in the relegation zone.

By contrast, Girona have three wins and a draw, joining Real Madrid and Barca as the only unbeaten sides in La Liga, and have conceded just twice so far.

The away side are favourites, but only just as the bookies are stil not convinced their form is not just due to a kind fixture list - we'll know more after Monday...

Leg 1: Gerard Gumbau 2+ fouls

We've got a couple of midfield options here for a fouls double right out of the old engine room for this Monday night showdown.

For the hosts it just has to be Gerard Gumbau we back for 2+ fouls at a decent price of 4/51.80 for someone so prolific in giving fouls away.

Gumbau has given away 10 fouls in his four games so far, and he's getting better at it with his tally reading 1, 2, 3, 4 in his matches up to now.

While we can't back him for five here to keep the run going, but Granada will be scrapping for everything and he'll be the one getting stuck in.

Leg 2: Ivan Martin 2+ fouls

And for the away side, who also aren't scared of putt ing their feet in, we'll back Ivan Martin for 2+ fouls at a healthy 9/52.80.

The Spaniard has made three starts so far this season with five fouls and a yellow card to his name showing he can put it about.

He's had a foul in every game and three in his last outing against Las Palmas so there's no reason we he can't get another couple here for us.

Back Martin & Gumbau 2+ fouls @ 4/15.00
