Overview

In an upcoming La Liga clash, Granada CF will host Athletic Bilbao at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes. With both teams having contrasting fortunes this season, this match promises to be a crucial encounter for the hosts who are struggling at the bottom of the table, while the visitors aim to solidify their position in the upper echelons of the league.

Granada

Granada's season has been marred by challenges, as evidenced by their current 19th place in the league standings. With only 7 points from 15 games, their form has been a cause for concern. The team has managed just a single win, alongside 4 draws and 10 losses, resulting in a troubling goal difference of -16. Their recent form does little to inspire confidence, with a string of poor results reading "LLDLL" in their last five matches.

Their last fixture saw them face a defeat against Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernab├ęu, where they lost 2-0. Despite playing at home for the upcoming match, Granada's recent performances suggest they have significant hurdles to overcome if they are to secure a much-needed victory.

Historically, Granada has had a decent record against Athletic Club, with 3 wins and 1 draw in their last five encounters. They will be hoping that this historical edge can translate into a positive result on their home turf.

Athletic Bilbao

Athletic Bilbao travels to Granada sitting comfortably at 6th in the league table with 28 points. Their season has been quite successful so far, with 8 wins, 4 draws, and only 3 losses. The team boasts a positive goal difference of +12 and comes into this match on the back of an impressive run of form "WDWWD", including a resounding 4-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano in their last outing.

The Basque side's performance this season suggests they are a formidable opponent, capable of taking on any challenge that comes their way. Although they will be playing away from their home ground San Mam├ęs Barria, their current momentum and confidence levels could prove pivotal in overcoming the home advantage that Granada holds.

Against Granada CF specifically, Athletic Bilbao's recent record shows 1 win and 1 draw out of five matches. They will be looking to improve upon this and continue their pursuit of European qualification spots.
