Match status: 2020/21 La Liga - Matchweek 2
Venue: Estadio San Mamés (Bilbao)
Blowing hot and cold this season, it hasn’t been the best of campaigns for Cules so far – a group who are clamoring to see their Barcelona side hit their former high marks once again. Watching their side play out such bore games as they have done so frequently this term, the fans will be gutted.

While some are calling for the head of Ronald Koeman, a few others believe the Dutchman is the right man for the job. Either way, the former Everton boss knows he must turn his side’s fortunes around soon enough, and a thumping victory over Athletic Bilbao can do him no harm.

Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona Team News

Faring pretty decent in the La Liga this season, Athletic Bilbao ended the previous year in the first-half of the standings, much to the delight of club supporters. Boasting a satisfactory 21 points from 17 games, Bilbao occupy ninth-place on the log.

Despite enjoying a strong first-half of the campaign, Bilbao made a shocking decision few hours after their narrow 1-0 home-win over Elche. Just moments after the triumph, the Lions parted ways with erstwhile manager Gaizka Garitano.

The Spaniard had led the Basque club to an eleventh-place finish last term, before promising European qualification this time around. However, with Bilbao losing ground on the top-six, a new manager in Marcelino has been installed to steer them back into contention.

With the former Valencia boss set to oversee his first game from the San Mames dugout on Wednesday, he will be gunning for a good result to get his reign off to a brilliant start. Los Leones’ recent form has been mediocre, winning only two of their previous eight matches.

In their defense, most of these games were against tricky sides – Real Madrid, Celta Vigo, Villarreal, Real Sociedad – and Bilbao must not feel too disheartened about dropping points against teams of such huge pedigree as these ones.

They will have their work cut-out against another top Spanish side in Barcelona next time out. The Catalan giants aren’t at their races this term, but are working tirelessly to get back on their feet. From the look of things, we might see a Blaugrana resurgence in the not-so-distant future.

Looking to make amends for their embarrassing one-all draw with Eibar, Barcelona returned to winning ways on the last matchday, securing a fortuitous 1-0 victory over Huesca to begin the New Year with all three points in the bag. Now, they must kick on to continue their climb up the table.

Injured or Suspended Players

Athletic Bilbao: Peru Nolaskoain.
Barcelona: Ansu Fati, Gerard Pique, Sergi Roberto, Philippe Coutinho and Samuel Umtiti.

Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona Predictions

Even with their unconvincing performances this season, Barcelona head into this game as clear favorites for the win. They may be struggling, but the Blaugrana are still a huge La Liga outfit, with some of Europe’s finest talents in their ranks.

However, this won’t be a walk in the pack for Barca, who will be tackling a Bilbao side in transition. A closely-fought game on our hands, we expect the visitors to come out on top to return to the league’s top-three mix.
