Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona – La Liga :Athletic Bilbao come into their official debut on the new season
with aspirations of fighting for the access to the European competitions
After last year’s campaign where they’ve gotten off to a poor start and, despite the recovery, they didn’t recovery on time to ensure a ticket to the Europa League, just barely, losing on the tiebreaker against Espanyol.
Without a lot of significant changes on the core team for this start of campaign in La Liga, Athletic finished the pre-season with a record of 3 victories, 4 draws and 1 loss.
Barcelona will make their debut on the new edition of La Liga looking to renew the title conquered on the last 2 seasons, having the expected competition of Real Madrid and also Atlético de Madrid.
Despite not having lost any of their main players from last season, the Catalans invested heavily on the transfer market, spending around 200 million Euros in only 2 reinforcements, Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong.
The main objective of the season will be reaching the Champions League final and fighting for that title, even to put an end for good to the nightmare of elimination on the last two editions, against Roma and Liverpool, in unbelievable fashion.
This is expected to be an interesting match on the opening of the new edition of La Liga, between an Athletic Bilbao that at home should prioritize their defensive end, but that won’t lose no opportunity of hurting Barcelona on the counterattack.
The signs given on the last matches of the pre-season by Valverde’s side were quite positive, even without Messi available.

Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona – Betting Tips: :
Although this is always a theoretically difficult trip, I believe that Barcelona will start off strong and manage to create enough opportunities to score at least 2 goals, even because defensively, this Ahtletic isn’t ready to face a team like Barça’s.
