ABOUT THE MATCH
Athletic Bilbao is going head to head with Barcelona starting on 17 Apr 2021 at 19:30 UTC at Estadio de la Cartuja stadium, Seville city, Spain. The match is a part of the Copa del Rey.
Athletic Bilbao played against Barcelona in 1 matches this season.
La Liga leader Barcelona will hit the road this weekend to battle Athletic Bilbao in the two clubs’ second and final meeting this season. Barca destroyed the Lions 5-1 at Camp Nou last December in the first matchup and will be a heavy favorite again Saturday.
The Spanish powerhouse won’t be lacking motivation to put forth an impressive effort in the wake of Tuesday’s 4-0 defeat at Bayern Munich in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semifinal tie.
On the other side, Bilbao is coming off a hard-fought draw at Deportivo La Coruna last Sunday and aiming to build some momentum as they head into the home stretch of La Liga play.
Considering how dominant Tito Vilanova’s men have been against La Liga competition this season, winning 27 of 32 league matches overall, Barca looks like a safe bet in Bilbao Saturday.
After all, Bilbao has earned just a single point in its last three league matches, dropping its most recent home La Liga tilt 3-0 to Real Madrid. Plus, with Barca still fuming over their 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, look for a determined performance from the soon-to-be La Liga champions.
The Lions will get on the board at home, but Barca possesses too much firepower.
