Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes will host Thursday’s football match between Granada and Athletic Club, the two teams who face each other in the Copa del Rey semis, return leg. Athletic Club aim to defend their slim lead in the second leg, and we are positive that they are going to adopt a defence-minded approach this time out. Considering that the Lions proved their worth in a 1-0 win over Villarreal at the weekend, we predict that they are going to make it to the Copa del Rey final.
Los Granadinos are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but you should bear in mind that they had no more than give goal attempts in the first leg. Anyhow, a low-scoring encounter is on the horizon at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes, and we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals.
