THE PREDICTION

Granada meet Athletic in the opening round of La Liga action and both of these teams will be targeting top half finishes this season and potentially pushing for European spots. Granada enjoyed an excellent campaign last season and that will give them plenty of confidence to repeat that form. They will not have it their own way against this Athletic side though who are tough to beat even if not in full flow. That could very well be the case in this opening game and with both teams likely to take some time to get back up to speed, a low-scoring affair and potentially a stalemate are on the cards.
