The Athletic Club coach, Gaizka Garitano, has appeared in front of the media at the Lezama facilities just 24 hours before the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals clash that will face Athletic and Granada CF in San Mamés (21.00 hours).

“It is our big opportunity to play a final with Athletic”, Garitano has highlighted, for whom the pass to the final will not be decided in San Mamés: “Neither for good nor for bad, the tie will be decided tomorrow, but tomorrow you have to be ambitious and go out for them. We have 180 minutes and from the first to the last we have to be focused because it will be a very hard semifinal and it will be decided by small details”.

The rojiblanco coach stressed the role The Cathedral can play: “We need the same environment as against Barcelona, ​​we need the strength of San Mamés. Garitano has defined Granada as a very physical team with strong people fighting for all the balls”.
