On bad runs and with Coaches under pressure, red and white colours aren't the only thing Granada and Athletic Bilbao have in common.
Sat in 17th and 16th positions respectively with eight points each, the Basque's superior 'goals for' tally the only thing keeping them ahead, the loser of this clash will almost certainly end the weekend in the relegation zone.
Coach Marcelo Bielsa dismissed the suggestion the Copa del Rey could be an oasis from Athletic's La Liga anguish, and and so it proved as his side laboured to a 0-0 draw with minnows Eibar on Thursday.
Juan Antonio Anquela's side didn't fare much better, losing a dreary encounter with Real Zaragoza 1-0 the previous night.
This fixture ended in a 2-2 draw last season, Fernando Llorente and Merkel Susaeta scoring as Los Leones came from 2-0 down to snatch a point.
