Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona enter into the match after having just lost their unbeaten run in the campaign. Both clubs had difficult midweek games in which little seemed to go their way. Barcelona will take solace from the result considering that Real Madrid were not able to take advantage. Athletic Bilbao travel to Camp Nou in search of a first league victory on this ground since 2001. Barcelona seemed to struggle with long balls in the game against Leganes and Bilbao have the potential to capitalise on this aspect of Barcelona’s defence by using the pace of Inaki Williams or the power of Raul Garcia. I see a strong value in backing both teams to score.

After two winless league games, Barcelona will be desperate to put things right when they take on Athletic Bilbao. The restoration of Luis Suarez to the starting line-up should help the hosts fare much better than they have done in recent times against Bilbao. Barcelona have averaged just two goals per game against this opponent in the last six. I would pick under 2.5 goals from the Catalans.

Both teams to score – 21/20
