Barcelona hosts Athletic Bilbao in a game from the 7th round of the season
The champion and current leader in La Liga Barcelona hosts Athletic Bilbao in a game from the 7th round of the season. We are going to take a look at this game at the Camp Nou in our vip soccer predictions today.
In the previous round Barca suffered their first loss for the season, conceding a defeat against Leganes away from home. But they were lucky that Real Madrid lost against Sevilla later, which allowed them to keep their first place in the league standings.
The manager Ernesto Valvered made some interesting choices against Leganes, but his experiments regarding his starting line-up backfired. Luis Suarez entered the pitch from the bench, but he was unable to change the game.
Now the Catalans know that they don’t have any other choice, but to beat Athletic in order to keep the first place for at least another week. Right now Barca are on par with the 2nd Real Madrid with both teams having the same amount of points – 13.
Athletic Bilbao are currently 15th in the league standings, not having the brightest possible start of the season. The Basques have 6 points won and just one win achieved so far – against Leganes in the first round. But here’s the moment to remind you that Athletic have a game less than all of the other teams in the league at this point.
These are our vip soccer predictions today for the La Liga game between Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao. Most of the pundits expect that Barca will stop their negative run of two games without a win. They know that they have to win in order to keep the first place. But in same time, it’s always difficult to play against Athletic. The Basques are a team which never gives up and everyone knows this.
