Athletic Club vs Granada Prediction: La Liga Match | 19.04.2024

The action in La Liga this weekend kicks off on Friday. Athletic Club will be chasing a vital victory in their race to achieve a Champions League finish, while it is a must-win fixture for Granada if they are to have any hope of maintaining their fight to avoid relegation.


La Liga Preview 

It has been an exciting season in Spain to this point, but the attention will be on both ends of the league standings when Athletic Club host Granada on Friday. The home side comes into this round of matches sitting in fifth spot after failing to win in their last two fixtures, meaning that they are now four points behind Atletico Madrid in the race for a Champions League spot this term. 

Bilbao were held to a disappointing draw in their most recent outing, as they failed to see out a 1-0 advantage despite playing against ten men for the entirety of the second period. Oihan Sancet had given Bilbao the advantage in that fixture after 66 minutes, but Villarreal stole a point from the penalty spot in the last minute of injury time.

Time is running out for Granada in La Liga at this stage of the season. The Spanish side comes into this round of matches sitting second bottom in the standings, and they are eleven points adrift from safety with just seven rounds of matches remaining. They have lost four of their last five in the competition, but their confidence was boosted following a rare victory in their previous fixture. 

Their most recent success was achieved at home against Alaves on Sunday, with Myrto Uzuni and Lucas Boye netting goals in the opening 45 minutes. They defended excellently to hold on to that advantage, and that could give them confidence ahead of this testing away showdown with Bilbao. 

Athletic Club vs Granada Head to Head 

The previous meeting between these sides this term saw the points shared following a 1-1 draw. That result means that Granada are now unbeaten in their last three matches against Bilbao. However, their only victory over that period was picked up in front of their own fans in May 2022. 

Athletic Club vs Granada Prediction 

Granada have struggled for away victories in this fixture throughout modern history, and that would be a concern ahead of the showdown on Friday. For that reason, we will be siding with a home success for Bilbao.
