Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
A place in the Copa del Rey final will be at stake when Athletic Club and Granada face each other in the double-header. The Lions head into the first leg following a heart-breaking loss to their local rivals Real Sociedad, and, no doubt, they are eager to give fans some cheer. Over the years Athletic Club have turned their San Mames into a real fortress, and despite their poor form, home win should be considered.
Inaki Williams, who found the net in the 2-1 loss to la Real, is likely to return to the starting XI. Los Granadinos, on the other hand, are a team with two faces. The Andalusian outfit have been impressive at home ground this season, but you should bear in mind that they are on an eight-game losing run on the road. Anyhow, the hosts, who defeated Barca in the quarter-finals, are closer to winning the first leg than the visitors.
