Football prediction tips for Ath Bilbao – Granada
Athletic Bilbao and Granada will enter the San Mames Barria’s pitch on Wednesday in a first 1/2-finals game from the Copa del Rey. We expect this match with great interest, so let’s talk about it in our football prediction tips.
During the 1/4-finals Athletic made a big statement and they showed everyone that they are pretty serious about winning the competition again. The Basques hosted Barcelona at the San Mames Barria and eliminated the Catalan giants after an own goal from Sergio Busquets in the last minute. Alongside Real Sociedad, right now Athletic are regarded as favourites for the trophy.
It’s understandable why Athletic Bilbao are regarded favourites against Granada, but you must keep in mind that this is a cup competition and all kinds of results are possible. Even if they win the first game in Bilbao, Athletic couldn’t be sure about winning the tie. Granada are aware that for them this is an amazing chance to reach the final and they will give their all.
Granada also showed their potential in the previous round when they eliminated one of the contenders for the trophy Valencia. The 34-years old Roberto Soldado scored both goals for Granada, proving that he can still score in important games like this one. Soldado is going to be one of Granada’s most dangerous weapons at the San Mames Barria on Wednesday.
If they eliminate Athletic Bilbao, Granada will qualify for a second time to the Copa del Rey final. This would be a historical achievement for this small club.
In these football prediction tips we believe that Athletic Bilbao are the team with the upper hand against Granada, but this season’s edition of the Copa del Rey already offered us a lot of surprises. That’s why we can actually expect all kinds of results between these two teams.
