Athletic Bilbao vs Granada Prediction

Athletic Bilbao got off to a fine start post the international break by taking down Osasuna on the road by a 2-1 scorecard. At the moment, the hosts are sporting a two-match winning streak in the La Liga and have admitted defeat just twice in their previous six matchups as well.

It is also worth mentioning that the home side have been at their best in their clashes at Estadio San Mames. As of now, they have stumbled just once in their last six fixtures here.

Meanwhile, Granada have been hit by a sharp decline in form. The visiting contingent managed no more than a share of the spoils in their last clash at home with Atletico Madrid after Renan Lodi’s opener was canceled by German Sanchez. Prior to that matchup, the guests were at the losing end of a 2-0 scorecard to Valencia on the road.

The away side have certainly not been faring well in their recent outings and are currently sporting a dismal three-match losing streak under their belt.

Taking into account that Granada have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous two visits here either, Athletic Bilbao are the outright favorites to climb up the ladder this week.

Additionally, the hosts have been tough to breach on home soil this season and have conceded just thrice so far. Barring Alaves, no other team have let in fewer goals at home.

On the other hand, Granada have been struggling to find the back of the net in their last two outings, and have just one goal to their name from those matchups.

Given the solid defensive approach that Atheltic Bilbao deploy at home, expect a dearth of goals in this one by all means.
