EARLY NOTES:
-Athletic wearing the green kits.
-Mikel Rico at media punta against his old team. This is not his position. He's not creative enough.
-We are dominating possession, as we should against the worst team in the league, despite being on the road. THREE POINTS is the only option here.

11': Aduriz blows by the defender but the touch is too hard and the ball is too far for him to recover and gather in. Oier collects it.

13': Muniain with a brilliant low cross but leads it a little too far ahead for a streaking Aduriz down the middle.

13': Aduriz had the ball in the same area where he scored the goal against Barcelona but he crossed it to Rico in the middle of the box. Ball intercepted and cleared.

14': Colunga beats De Marcos badly down the left flank, pushes the ball to his right but his shot is way wide right of the net.

23': Granada with a dangerous cross into the box but it's countered by Athletic. Nice cross from Susaeta for Aduriz but he heads it wide left.

30' Aduriz in the area but he was forced left and had too tight a window to shoot on goal. Cleared.

31': Same ol', same ol'. Another cross into the box. San José streaking and tries to kick it in directly from the air with his extended foot but it's wide.

33': Babín with Granada's best chance. Beautiful service from Piti on the free kick is headed toward goal but Gorka dives for the save.

60': De Marcos down the right side into the box, but then unleashes one of the worst crosses I have EVER seen. EVER.
