Everything is possible in Granada
The city has turned over with the team. Flags in the streets and balconies, fans in the previous training and there will be the reception of great appointments. If in Bilbao, San Mamés was the number twelve player, Los Cármenes will not be left behind today. Full to the flag in a stadium that has remained small. Because the field will be the great weapon of the Nasrids. At home, before his people, the Granada team has only lost three games and has conceded eight goals in thirteen games, leaving the goal to zero in seven games. There is one of the keys: do not fit.Diego Martínez will bet again on three centrals and two lanes. Already in Bilbao it changed on the fly before the flood of Basque occasions. Since then, It has been its star system and is giving very good results. The coach, who made many rotations against Celta in LaLiga, will re-align his eleven gala with the only absence of Soldier, by penalty. Without the tip, a hero against Valencia in the quarterfinals, Carlos Fernández will be the only reference. Garitano also meditates returning to the defense with three centrals or continuing with four. The victory against Villarreal has reinforced the team. The technician’s doubt is who will supply Dani García, capital for the Basques. San José, lacking rhythm, will be his substitute.Athletic comes as a favorite, but everything is possible in Granada … A little over a year ago, Granada fought in the Silver Category for a promotion that had already resisted a course before. A disenchanted hobby, a half-empty stadium and a team that conveyed nothing. Then Diego Martínez landed by Antonio Monterrubio and the club took a turn. The fans were excited again, the team won and in a single season Granada again rubbed shoulders with the greats of Spain …It seemed difficult to improve last season, but “Everything is possible in Granada.” If not, ask Manolo Escobar and his mythical film from the early 80s. No one imagined that this group of friends would win Barcelona (2-0), get the leadership of the First Division alone after 46 years or reach almost the best levels in history in the Copa del Rey. And today, without pressure and with great enthusiasm, Granada wants to continue writing a story that only a year ago seemed impossible. It is 90 minutes from the second Cup final of its history. The previous one was 61 years ago, that one of bad memory after falling 4-1 against Barça. The Basques arrive with an advantage, the 1-0 they achieved in the first play in San Mamés. Athletic could kill then, but it didn’t and He left alive a Granada that grows in Los Cármenes. Martinez’s were clear that it was a 180-minute game and, in Ecuador, they have a comeback result.
