Reunion in Granada

Granada and Athletic see each other again as in the last league match of last season. Milla, the Nasrid novelty; Yuri and Williams enter the call


The Santander League begins in Los Cármenes as it ended last year, with a Granada-Athletic (follow the game live on That night, the last of an atypical season, ended with the smile of the Nasrids, who achieved their historic qualification for the Europa League for the first time in their history after thrashing Bilbao 4-0. Although last year, there were heads and tails for both teams. A few months before, those who left with a smile and the ticket to the cup final were Athletic. Today they meet again to start a season that begins with a pre-season flavor.

The coronavirus pandemic continues to disrupt the plans of all teams. There will still be no public and both teams have been affected by positives, four in the Granada ranks, six in the Bilbao. All, luckily, will be available, but many with a few days of training and some without even having played a minute of play in the few friendlies that have been played. Another problem has been the change of time and day at the last minute. The war between LaLiga and the RFEF meant that it was not known until Wednesday night that the match would be on Saturday, instead of the scheduled start day, Friday. Something that alters the preparation of both. Handicaps for the two teams to which Granada adds that in just five days they will debut in Europe.

The coach arrives without absences, but players like Kenedy, Eteki or Molina have only had three training sessions. For his part, Garitano will finally be able to count on Williams and Yuri, who could enter the list and will also have three puppies in the call: Vencedor, Zarraga and Morcillo, one of the sensations of Athletic's preseason that could even come out Of start. Another atypical season begins in Primera.
