Athletic Club vs Granada Preview
Athletic has scored four, drawn seven, and defeated two of their 13 La Liga matches this season, making them earn 19 points and putting them in eighth place ahead of the next round of games.
Marcelino’s team has only lost one of their past seven games in Spain’s top division, however at home to Cadiz on November 5, and they have now gone four games without a win at this level.
Athletic was ranked 10th in Spain’s top division last season, but they were fifth in 2015-16, and they will be confident that they can compete for a European spot.
Likewise, the Lions will be aiming for continuous La Liga victories over Granada, having won 2-1 at San Mames in March.
Granada comes into Friday’s game having lost 4-1 at home to Real Madrid last weekend, as well as a 2-0 setback at Espanyol before the international break.
There’s no denying that Robert Moreno’s team has had a difficult start to the season, with 11 points from 13 games putting them in 17th place, level on points with 18th-placed Elche.
Granada had placed seventh and ninth in their prior two seasons at this level, so there was a lot of expectation for them this season, but their results since then have been unsatisfactory.
However, Granada has done better this season than at home, with six points from seven away games compared to only five from six games.
