La Liga predictions for Athletic Club vs Barcelona

Athletic Club hosts Barcelona in the first leg of the new season in the Spanish La Liga. The match will be played on Friday night starting at 20:00 UK at San Mames Stadium.

The time has also come for the start of the Spanish Football Championship, with a tense and intriguing season awaiting us and the battle for the title is expected to be more interesting than the previous campaign. The hosts at this meeting, the Athletic Club team, could not have had a more difficult start to the new campaign. The Basques meet champion Barcelona, ​​who won the title last season nine points more than second-placed Atletico Madrid. Barcelona left Real Madrid behind by 19 points. However, Barca were not as convincing as they had won 26 of their 38 games and made nine straight draws. Barcelona lost three times last season, now having a tough test of starting a campaign in Bilbao. A big blow for the Catalans was the elimination of the Champions League final from Liverpool.

Athletic Club finished eighth in the 2018/19 season, winning 13 of their 38 games. The Basques finished with a negative goal difference, scoring 41 goals and allowing 45 hits. The Athletic Club hopes for a slightly better performance this new season, which will bring them a higher ranking and a return to Europe. Athletic Club achieved a difficult 2-1 victory over Mirandés in their last friendly before the start of the season. Previously, the Basques made a good match and finished 2-2 against Roma.

Barcelona will look to kick off the new season and record success against the Athletic Club on Friday night. New additions Frenkie de Jong and Griezmann are expecting their official debut with the Cataluns T-shirt. Goalkeeper Neto and defender Junior Firpo are another of the new arrivals, attracted respectively by Valencia and Real Betis. Ernesto Valverde split with Brazilian Malcom, who switched to Zenit, and defender Thomas Vermaelen. Denis Suárez midfielder, who played for Arsenal in the spring, was sold to Celta and André Gomes was officially bought by Everton. The transfer summer for Barcelona could continue to attract Neymar, who is quite likely to return to Camp Nou. However, in Barcelona now they will only think about the San Mames duel and I think the Catalans will successfully start the new season by betting on sign 2 in this match.
Good luck with our’s La Liga predictions for the new season!
