San Mames welcomes a resurgent Granada to town

Ernesto Valverde's charges, who are keen to bounce back quickly from the disappointment of getting knocked out of Europe in midweek, take on a Granada side buoyed by two wins in their last three matches.

Team News:

- Athletic Club: Kepa, Aritz Aduriz, Aymeric Laporte (all injured); Raul Garcia (suspended).

- Granada CF: Matthieu Saunier, Artem Kravets (injured).

 Match Facts:

Athletic Club (8th, 35 pts):

- Ernesto Valverde's side will want to swiftly put elimination from the Europa League behind them and focus on LaLiga. After falling to defeat away to Valencia CF last time out, Athletic will be desperate to get back to winning ways on home turf.

- The Basque outfit are unbeaten at San Mames in LaLiga since FC Barcelona clinched all three points back on Matchday 2, racking up eight wins and two draws in that time.  Valencia, Sevilla FC and Real Sociedad are among the clubs that have succumbed to defeat away to Athletic this season.

 Granada CF (19th, 16 pts):

- Granada sealed a crucial victory last weekend in their battle for survival, by thumping R. Betis 4-1 at the Nuevo Los Carmenes.

 - The Andalusian outfit's three league wins so far this season over Sevilla, UD Las Palmas and Betis have all come at home. The visit to Athletic could be the perfect chance for Lucas Alcaraz's troops to register their first victory of the campaign on the road.
