Athletic Club played out a goalless draw at Nuevo Los Carmenes against Granada CF. In the first half the red-and-whites were on top thanks to a decent amount of pressure, but the good number of attacks on their opponents’ area did not affect the scoreboard.

The tendency seemed to continue in the second half, but, curiously, once Insua was sent off having received a straight red card, Granada enjoyed their best chances, especially in the final stretch of the match. All in all, not knowing how to win led to the nervousness at the end, with each team settling for one point.

There is no let-up in the calendar and, although there is a slightly longer to prepare for the game, next Thursday there is a date with the UEL in Turin, against a Torino FC, who, as was the case with the last opponents (FC Barcelona, Espanyol), seem to be going through their best moments so far this season.

Either way, since the triple clash against Malaga began, Athletic has only lost one of the last seven games, drawing four and winning two. A team that has trouble winning, but which is also hard to defeat.
