In a year of returning to La Liga, the team led by Diego Martínez has been doing a sensational season, in both internal competitions. In the last round of the championship, Granada drew in the reception to Celta de Vigo (0-0), remaining in an area away from the places where the league table is descending. Athletic, on the other hand, broke their bad form in the league last Sunday by beating Villarreal 1-0, reinforcing confidence before the decision to qualify for the Copa del Rey final.

Soccer Betting Picks Granada vs Athletic Bilbao
For all that will be at stake when Granada and Athletic Bilbao enter the field, it is expected that this will be a game played in a less intense tone, where the defensive cautions of both sides will override the will to attack an unbridled mode. The advantage of a Basque goal is short, so defensive organization should be the main objective of both teams, especially in the first hour of play.
