Athletic Bilbao vs Granada
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 7 March 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio San Mamés.
The Lions are going through a good run at the moment, and are scoring goals at a good rate lately. They are also at home this weekend, and have seldom lost here over the course of the campaign.
They have a game in hand, and are chasing a spot in the top-most tier. Moreover, the three teams just above them in the table are going through dismal runs, and this is an opportunity for them to improve their position in the table.
Meanwhile, the Nasrids are going though a struggling stretch, and are conceding goals in huge numbers.
They are also on the road, and have been a total failure in such match-ups in these games over the past four-five months.
Finally, they also have an inferior h2h record at this venue against this rival over the years.
Likely, expect Athletic Bilbao to secure the three points this Sunday.

The Lions recorded a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, against Levante. In the meantime, Diego Martinez’s men registered a 2-1 win at home against Elche.
Going on, Toral’s men were unbeaten in 13 of their former 15 overall fixtures, and the total two losses during this stretch had come against Barcelona.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of their last eleven overall games, and they had conceded two or more goals in five of their last seven match-ups.
In addition, the Lions also have a superb h2h record at this venue in h2h meetings over the years.
As such, expect Bilbao to deliver a winning performance this Sunday at the San Mames.
