Athletic’s weird season got even weirder this week, after they reached their second Copa del Rey final in two years.
The postponement of the 2020 final means that Marcelino’s team will now play two cup finals in the space of two weeks in April. In these unprecedented days, Athletic could essentially win La Copa twice, with no fans present to see him do so.
With the team also winning the Spanish Super Cup earlier this season, much of Athletic’s current success can be attributed to the arrival of coach Marcelino, who changed the club’s fortunes in a spectacular way.
But Athletic is far from being on the side of the cup. Marcelino has led the club to the category since his arrival and the team has been performing well in recent weeks.
Last time in the league against Levante, Athletic managed to score a point in the 1-1 draw. Raul Garcia converted a penalty shortly after the break and Marcelino’s men were unlucky not to win the game either.
In what was once a successful season for Diego martinezAlongside Granada, the Andalusian side can consolidate their top credentials in La Liga with three points against Athletic on Sunday.
Currently in eighth place in the standings, a victory by Granada could take them to the top echelons of the division, where the fight for European football next season is really heating up.
A rarely mentioned aspect of Granada’s football style is the dependence of Martinez’s team on attacking players. With 42 goals conceded so far in this campaign, Granada has the worst defensive history in the division.
Against Elche in the league last time, Granada was in a devastating form, winning Fran ScribeTeam 2-1 at the Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes.
