GRD vs ATH Dream11: Granada and Athletic Bilbao turn their attention to domestic cup campaign as both the teams prepare for the Copa del Rey 2nd leg match at Los Cármenes on Thursday night (IST) as the hosts look to overcome a 0-1 first-leg deficit in front of the home fans.
Bilbao, on the other hand, will look to finish the job here. Iker Muniain's 42nd-minute strike has given the club a golden opportunity to move to the final and win this trophy they have won 23 times. That number makes them the second most successful club in this particular tournament, behind only Barcelona who have won it for a record 30 times, and six times in the last 10 years.
Bilbao's last appearance in the final came in 2014-15 when they were toppled by Barcelona, while the last title victory came in 1983-84 season.
Granada made their one and only appearance in the final in 1959 and are aiming to win their first top-tier trophy, but they will have to raise their game by few notches from what they managed in the first leg, where the 1-0 scoreline die flatter them. Bilbao were the clear better team in the match and deserved more advantage. So the one-nil deficit is the only positive for them from the first leg, and second is that they are at home.
The winner of this game will be facing Real Sociedad in the all-important final.
