Granada ended last season with a 4-0 win at home to Athletic Club to qualify for Europe for the first time in the club's history and fate has decided that the same two sides will meet again in the Los Carmines Stadium to open the new campaign. The kick-off was changed from Friday to Saturday late on Wednesday night, which should allow another 24 hours for players such as Inigo Martinez, Yuri Berchiche and Inaki Williams more time to reach match fitness after picking up injuries and Covid-19 in pre-season. However, Athletic will no doubt be worried by the naming of Mateu Lahoz as matchday referee. Lahoz has refereed Athletic 34 times in La Liga and the Basque side have won just six of those matches, drawn seven and lost 21- numbers hard to explain for a side that is usually in the top half of the table.
