Barcelona has to get back!
Barcelona made a long successful series of 9 games without a loss in La Liga. As 5 of their last 6 were victories. And notice, they were all guest appearances. In 4 of them they did not concede a goal.
Now they are returning to their stadium. And against an opponent to whom they definitely have something to say. The loss to Athletic Bilbao in the final of the Spanish Super Cup was particularly unpleasant.
And accompanied by a lot of negative emotions on the field. Like Leo Messi’s nerves, they couldn’t stand it either. But he has already served his sentence. And even prepared for this match with a goal in a match for the King’s Cup against Rayo Vallecano.
Athletic Bilbao is in good shape!
Athletic Bilbao played a total of 6 matches under the leadership of their new coach Marcelino in all tournaments. The first of them was a 2-3 loss to Barcelona.
However, 5 victories followed, one of which came after extra time. But most were in cup matches. Their last victory over Getafe with 5-1 was not only definite, but also after a very good game.
Forecast for Barcelona – Bilbao
Historically, the advantage of this clash is on the side of Barcelona. Although in the most important last 7 matches the Catalans have only 2 successes, with 2 for Athletic Bilbao and 3 draws.
Many have to get the players of Barcelona back in this match. And sports malice-motivation is a powerful driving force. Winning with at least 2 goals difference for the hosts is my choice for prediction.
Despite the mass expectations for a difficult match. As well as the tradition of difference with no more than 1 goal in this clash. Bet with a rather large size.
