Venue: Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes (Granada).
Granada will try to build on their recent win in the campaign to give it a shot on their chances to reach the Europa League qualifier spot in the league table. Bilbao will try to impede the host’s run but is less likely to succeed in that plot.
El Grana had only one loss within their last five fixtures in the campaign and that too was against the Champions, Real Madrid, at home last week in their schedule.
Their previous encounter was on the road against Mallorca and the Nazaries paved way for Mallorca into relegation this season in a 1-2 entertainer.
In the meantime, Bilbao has lost thrice within the recent five fixtures in the league. All three losses came at home against Sevilla, Real Madrid, and Leganes in the last match.
They hosted Leganes last time out and were defeated with a clean sheet 0-2 scoreline. it was their second clean sheet loss within the last three losses in the league schedule.
In the reverse fixture this season, Bilbao had their home ground advantage to pull a 2-0 win against Granada at home. Nazaries will wait to avenge the loss as the tables have turned in the campaign.

- Both teams have scored in four of the last six matches.
- Nazaries have three wins and two losses at home in 7 clashes.
Granada vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction
Granada still has a chance to visit Europe if three teams above them slip up in their individual last fixture this season. Bilbao doesn’t have a similar hope since they lost to a relegation prone Levante last time out, and the last visit in the campaign this season will not be an easy ride for them.
Nazaries can fancy home ground advantage in the clash and they will be confident after putting Mallorca into relegation in their last league clash. Bilbao’s last two outings were successful, but when visiting Granada they don’t keep a high success rate in their visits.
The home win will be risky considering the host has been winless in their recent four home matches even though it was against the top part teams in the table. So, the double chance of favoring Granada with 1.40 odds will be the safest bet for the punters in the encounter.
In their h2h meetings at this venue, Granada has scored 2 goals in each of four of their recent five clashes. Besides, both teams have an average over 1 goal per match in the league. The tip for over 1.5 goals with 1.40 odds will thus be a suitable option for the punters in the game.
