Athletic Bilbao vs Granada Prediction & Analysis

Bilbao were held to a goalless draw the last match-day by Levante. They were also unbeaten in 13 of their past 15 fixtures, and they had won three of their former five appearances at home.

Going on, they have failed to score just once at home this whole season, and they have lost just against five teams at this venue this entire year. Three of those teams were Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Sociedad.

On the other hand, Granada have won just twice in the past seven-month period, and one of these victories had come against the 20th placed Levante.

On top of that, they also have a poor h2h record against this foe over the years.

Considering these observations, expect a win for Bilbao this Friday at the Estadio San Mamés.

Key Stats for Betting
