Slow off the blocks this term, it appeared Barcelona were going to struggle to even make a top-half finish, let-alone challenge for the league title. However, these ones have risen from their ruins to begin racking up points on the spin.

Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao are looking a much-more revitalized side. Since taking his place in the San Memes dugout, Marcelino has turned Los Leones into a huge force to reckon with. In tip-top form at the moment, this side will be very confident of pulling off a good result here.

Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao Team News

Without a doubt, Barcelona will still be feeling the agony of their Spanish Super Cup final loss to Athletic Bilbao a week ago. Despite going ahead twice in that game, Barca got pegged back on both occasions as their defense failed to make their mark.

It was a pretty glum day for Barcelona who missed out on a golden opportunity to clinch their first piece of silverware in over one year. Coming up against this same Bilbao side this weekend, Koeman’s men will be determined to avenge that acrimonious defeat.

Enjoying a stupendous run of form lately, the Blaugrana are unbeaten in their previous nine league games on the bounce – winning four of their most recent matches. Hence, it goes without saying that morale is high in their ranks.

Last time out in the league, Barcelona managed to comfortably see off Elche, even without the services of legendary forward Lionel Messi. Strikes from de Jong and Puig were enough to help Barca bag maximum points to move into third place.

Only three points shy off eternal rivals Real Madrid, victory in this upcoming contest could see the Blaugrana leapfrog Zidane’s men on the table. But it goes without saying that it would be a herculean task for them to sweep Athletic Bilbao aside.

Having just joined the club in December, head coach Marcelino has already clinched a title for Bilbao – a Super Cup triumph over Barcelona. Also, his side roared to an emphatic victory last time out in the league, giving Getafe a hiding in an emphatic 5-1 win.

Rampant on the day, Rui Garcia got a brace to lead his side to victory. Now, Bilbao have recorded four consecutive wins across all competitions – including triumphs over Real Madrid and Barcelona. They will be hoping to close out January on a winning note when they visit Camp Nou on Sunday night.

Injured or Suspended Players

Barcelona: Moussa Wague, Ansu Fati, Gerard Pique, Philippe Coutinho, Sergino Dest and Sergio Busquets.
Athletic Bilbao: Peru Nolaskoain and Mikel Balenziaga.

Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao Predictions

There is no questioning Athletic Bilbao’s fantastic quality. Under Marcelino, they have proven to be one of the better sides in the division. But they will have their work cut-out, attempting to secure back-to-back victories against high-flying Barcelona.

The Blaugrana’s league form is admirable, given they have won their previous four matches in the competition. A closely-contested affair on our hands, we are expecting no less than two goals come fulltime.
