Reason for Athletic Bilbao vs Granada Predictions
It would be fair to say that Granada CF has been struggling on their top-flight travels of late, with their current run of 12 consecutive defeats forming part of a 13-match winless sequence. Ath Bilbao, meanwhile, has enjoyed 15 wins in 19 home games at this level of late, plus confidence should be high after starting the season with a victory. Recent top-flight matches at the Estadio San Mames have not exactly been awash with excitement, as seven of the previous ten have served up two goals or fewer. Fewer than three goals per match were seen in 5 of the past six meetings where Athletic Bilbao has been involved. Breaking down the goal split in this period, opposing sides scored a total of 4 while Athletic Bilbao managed the sum of 5. The Athletic Bilbao manager Marcelino García Toral will be happy not to have any fitness worries at all ahead of this game, owing to a completely injury-free squad to pick from. Iker Muniain has excellent ball control and can play in several positions. Asier Villalibre enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He does great in the penalty area.
Granada CF team, who have found the net just once in their last six trips at this level, is unlikely to result in a high-scoring contest this time around either. Over the course of their most recent 15 matches at the top table of Spanish football, Ath Bilbao has been involved in just three encounters in which the net has bulged at both ends. Coming into this fixture, Granada hasn’t beaten Athletic Bilbao in away games against them for the last four matches in the league. They really have not been traveling well at all. Looking at the statistics for their head-to-head meetings going back to 01/12/2019, there is nothing to separate the two clubs, with Athletic Bilbao winning 3 of those games, Granada 3, and 0 being drawn in regulation time. The previous league encounter featuring these sides was the La Liga matchday 26 on 07/03/2021, in which Athletic Bilbao celebrated a 2-1 victory. Owing to a fully healthy squad to choose from, the Granada manager Robert Moreno doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of before this game. Maxime Gonalons plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Granada is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Athletic Bilbao should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
