GRD Vs ATH Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Athletic Bilbao carry a slender but crucial 1-0 lead into the second encounter of their semi-final.
Although Athletic Bilbao come into today’s encounter against Granada with a crucial 1-0 lead in their kitty, the side will be ruing their inability to be clinical in their attacking sorties the last time around. Despite dominating that encounter and creating ample scoring opportunities, the side was able to salvage only the one goal advantage heading into today’s second round of their semi-final in the Copa del Ray.
It’s a predicament which looks set to be a source of peril for them today owing to their current form. The side has registered just one win in its last five matches preceding today’s all important fixture with the side just about arresting its four match losing spree in La Liga with a 1-0 win over Villarreal the last time around.
Elsewhere, Granada which is unbeaten in three fixtures ever since being put down by Athletic Bilbao will be looking to overturn the deficit staring it in the face. They drew 0-0 with Celta Vigo in their most recent outing to stay above Athletic Bilbao in La Liga by three points, ones which see both these units separated by the one spot in the league.
GRD Vs ATH Probable Winner
With Athletic Bilbao in horrific touch off late with their flailing attacking unit coming to the fore, the visiting unit will focus all its attention to shunting Granada for finding the goal. And while they are well equipped in pulling of a cleansheet, Granada should do more than enough to pull off a win on the day.

GRD Vs ATH Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Our Dream 11 side begins with the pick of Rui Silva from Granada for today’s forthcoming encounter. The side’s shot stopper has ardently utilised his acumen to scrutinise shots sent down his way to come out unblemished and bolster up his side’s defence across the course of the last month.
GRD Vs ATH Dream11 Defenders
Athletic Bilbao have had to pay a costly price for their defence losing its compactness and shape off late but that does little to deter us from veering clear of their defenders for today’s encounter. The side is well capable of curbing any attacking unit, something well documented by the mere 22 goals they have let in all season.
And at the forefront of their tenacity has been Yuri Berchiche and Ander Capa to see us repose faith in the duo for this encounter. Elsewhere, with Athletic Bilbo waning in attack and finding it extremely tough to pile on the goals, we have a reminiscent partnership be roped in from Granada as well in the form of the vigour filled Carlos Neva and Germain Sanchez.

His side’s top scorer with the 6 goals and 3 assists this season, Darwin Machis from Granada becomes the first player to earn a spot in our Dream 11 contest for this one. With Athletic Bilbao losing their way defensively, the player will be quietly confident of adding to that tally today and helping guide his side past the finishing line.
He’s assisted by Alvaro Vadillo for the encounter while from the visiting unit we’ll be going in with Iker Muniain who has scored the four goals and 2 assists this season.
GRD Vs ATH Dream11 Strikers
Athletic Bilbao’s top scorer with the 8 goals and one assist, the imperious Raul Garcia-Escudero was always going to be an instant selection for us. He’s partnered up by Inaki Williams who has popped up with the 5 goals this term and scored against Barcelona in the side’s 1-0 win in the quarter-final.
Elsewhere from the home unit, five goal and two assist man, Carlos Fernandez will be wrapping up our Dream 11 side for the day.
