Ath Bilbao – Granada CF : Preview & Prediction
Athletic Bilbao will play another Copa del Rey final after the Super Cup of Spain following their qualification against Levante after extra time on Thursday night. The Basques are less comfortable in the league with a 10th position after 24 games played. They still remain on a convincing 7-game unbeaten streak. Bilbao have developed a habit of dominating Granada at home with 3 wins in the last few meetings at home.
Granada exceeds expectations this season with an 8th place in the standings, but above all with a qualification for the round of 16 of the Europa League. It will therefore be necessary to watch if Granada do not have the lead in Thursday’s game against Molde. Granada are also struggling away from home, with their last league victory dating back to December 13 against Elche. Granada will also be deprived of its Colombian striker Luis Suarez (5 goals in 19 appearances).
Athletic Bilbao is playing again 3 days after qualifying in extra time for the Copa del Rey final.
Athletic Bilbao have not lost in their 3 home games against Granada.
Granada have not won away in the league since December 13, 2020.
Granada welcomes Molde on Thursday March 11 in the round of 16 of the Europa League.
