Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao 23.10.2022
With their UCL hopes hanging in the balance and Real Madrid having the upper hand domestically, Barcelona’s season is not panning out the way many anticipated. In this tie against Athletic Bilbao, they will hope to continue to pick up the pieces and keep the pressure on Real Madrid.
For Bilbao, a current run of 1 win in the last 4 has pushed them to 6th on the log with 18 points from 10 games. In this tie, they will be looking to deal another blow to what looks like a struggling Barcelona. However, given Barca’s dominant display in past meeting between both sides, Bilbao are in for a long day at the office here.
Looking at what is at stake for Barca and the thrilling nature of past games between both teams, we expect an attacking game with at least 10 corners played.
