Bilbao vs Barcelona by Rahul

Barcelona started off their campaign in the same way that they finished last season, winning games, thumping opposition with Messi and Suarez running the show. Messi smashed in 2 goals while Suarez scored a hat-trick as Barcelona beat Real Betis by a score of 6-2. While Barcelona will not yet have Neymar; Arda Turan, Ivan Rakitic and Munir have been giving plenty of support to the front 2. Defensively is where Barcelona might struggle in this game given the fact that Claudio Bravo has gone off to Manchester City, while Ter Stegen is unsure of participating due to a knock. Barcelona will feel confident coming into this game winning all 4 meetings between the 2 sides last season; covering a 1 goal handicap in 2 of them, while refunding in the other 2.


Athletic Bilbao got off to a horrible start to the new season losing to Sporting Gijon by a score of 2-1; and were already out of it conceding 2 goals in a span of 3 minutes right after the half time break. Athletic Bilbao's biggest concern will be on the goal scoring efforts as veteran Aduriz and Inaki Williams are the major 2 sources of goals for them. They have enough players like Garcia, Susaeta and Muniain to give them service, but will be difficult to see how they find the goals to win. Mikel Rico and Ager Aketxe will be out of their team coming into this encounter. Bilbao have traditionally struggled in this fixture and will not feel contended that this tie has come so early in the season, when their form is still yet to develop.


I expect Barcelona to march on their merry way in this game, and I am backing them on the Asian Handicap; if they happen to just win the game by less than 2 goals, you get a refund
