Athletic Bilbao vs Granada Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Athletic Bilbao’s distractions in the Europa League clearly made them pay in the form of a 2-0 loss against Valencia. Nani scored the opening goal after just 13 minutes before Simone Zaza gave the home team a crucial second. Granada showed that their win over Las Palmas at the start of February was no flash in the pan after a resounding 4-1 win over Real Betis. Goals from Mehdi Carcela and Andreas Pereira coupled with a brace from Adrian Ramos ensured this brilliant win. Real Betis and Granada both had a man sent off after red cards to Matias Nahuel and Andreas Pereira.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Granada may have won two out of the last three games, but the club’s dismal form on the road continues. They are without a win in 12 away matches. Coming up against an Athletic Bilbao team unbeaten in the last 11 league matches at the San Mames, they are not expected to get much joy. I would back Athletic Bilbao to get a win.

Granada have scored only one goal in the last four away matches. Even though they come into the game on a good run of form, their performance on the road still leaves a lot to be desired. I would back Athletic Bilbao to keep a clean sheet.

Athletic Bilbao to win – 4/9

Athletic Bilbao to keep a clean sheet – 11/10

Athletic Bilbao Preview

Athletic Bilbao's defeat against Valencia may not be surprising considering the club’s poor form on the road this season. The club has managed only two away wins. Incidentally, their last away win was against struggling Granada. In terms of home form, Athletic Bilbao have taken more points than Barcelona or Atletico Madrid. It has been the primary reason behind their challenge for a top six spot in the La Liga. Athletic Bilbao’s only home defeat of the season came against Barcelona in August. Even at 36 years of age, Adruiz has made an impact and is the club’s leading scorer with 8 league goals.

Granada Preview

Granada’s hopes of avoiding relegation this season have been kindled with the team winning two out of the last three league matches. Performing well at the Nuevo Los Carmenes remains the biggest hope for the club, as they still remain without an away win after 12 attempts this season. In fact, their away form has been so poor that Granada have scored only one goal in the last five games. Granada have been able to move within two points of safety, but none of the remaining home matches are against their relegation rivals.
