Granada vs. Athletic Bilbao Match Analysis and Prediction

The opening fixture for the 2020-21 La Liga campaign kick starts this weekend. It will see side Granada play host to side Athletic Bilbao at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 7:30 pm.

Granada ended the season on a high note, managing to claim the 7th spot in the rankings. The position will see the side take on the Europa league qualification action next week. The same can’t be said for Bilbao with an 11th finish last season.

The last season for Granada ended with sixteen wins, eight draws, and fourteen losses. It was an impressive 58 points from 38 matches that ended in a 7th finish. The impressive form grants the side a second qualifying round in the Europa League.

An clear progression in La Liga because it was in Segunda Division for the side given two seasons. Last season marked their highest finish in the league since the 1973-1974 campaign season.

Before the season-opening fixture, Athletic had four season friendlies. It started with a 4-0 loss to side Granada. The losing form carried forward with a 3-1 loss to side Logrones and a draw to Eibar and Real Oviedo.

It was an unimpressive run in the previous La Liga for the Basque outfit. The out of form side ended with losing four of their last five matches that saw the side fall down the rankings.
