Granada vs Athletic Bilbao – Copa del Rey – Granada currently occupies the 9th place of La Liga with 37 points conquered in 26 matches.
Granada vs Athletic Bilbao –Granada started the season very well, even being in the lead of La Liga
and that good start to the season allowed them to conquer almost all of the points required to avoid relegation or at least a good portion of them.
Avoiding relegation is their great objective and I believe they will be able to accomplish that objective with relative ease.
Granada, because they’re so relaxed in La Liga, managed to advance some rounds in the Copa del Rey and they come into this match with real chances of advancing onto the final.
Their big moment on this competition was the 2-1 victory at home over Valencia, current champions of the Copa del Rey.
Atlético Bilbao is a Spanish side that occupies the 10th place of La Liga with 34 points conquered in 26 matches.
Bilbao is always a very strong team in the Copa del Rey, already having won it on some occasions and this year, they are coming into this match as favourites to reach the final of the competition.
In La Liga they are a bit more inconsistent and they are interested in qualifying to the final of the Copa del Rey where they can even fight for the title even because they already know they won’t be facing any big club.
Bilbao struggled on some ties, having beaten Elche and Tenerife just barely away from home in complicated matches but the stand-out point was the victory at home over Barcelona by 1-0 that meant they qualified onto this semi-final.
On the 1st leg, we’ve seen Bilbao dominating the encounter, playing better and getting a deserved 1-0 victory. It was definitely a good result and that will affect this decisive match.
I see the Basques having a better team and more quality than this Granada although Granada is actually ahead of them in La Liga.
Granada got off to a very good start, but they are no longer the strong team they were in the beginning of the season. Bilbao has been dominating Granada and they’ve won on the last 4 meetings between the two sides.

Granada vs Athletic Bilbao – Betting Tips: :
I think that Bilbao, with the advantage they bring from the 1st leg, will play on a lower rhythm
and take advantage of some of Granada’s mistakes that will have to expose themselves in order to be able to recover from the disadvantage and Bilbao can exploit that and put an end to this tie.
I’ll take Bilbao to win or draw this encounter.
