Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao Preview

Great match for betting on Monday in 2nd leg of Spanish Super Cup. Barcelona takes on Athletic Bilbao and we expect great football match. But can Barcelona come back against Athletic? Barcelona's defense was terrible in 1st leg and their 4-0 defeat was the first time after 14 years. Barca needs to go all out and pull off a miraculous result if want to win Super Cup on Monday. It will be very hard job for sure. Conceding 8 goals in two games doesn't really encourage Barca's fans before the match against Athletic Bilbao.

Barcelona are the great team and they won Spanish Super Cup eleven times, but for sure this time it will be an extremely difficult task for Barcelona. They play very badly in previous matches and won only one game from their last six. Again they have to play without Neymar, but they will play very offensive from the first minute. Also they need to play much better in defense line and to finish this match without conceding a goal. Athletic's coach Ernesto Valverde is very satisfied with first leg, and he probably will no change his lineup for this match. Athletic Bilbao play very strong football in defense line and it will be their main objective for this game. Last time Athletic conceded at least four goals in match against Barcelona before six months. Result was 2:5. We will watch another one great match between Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao and expect real spectacle at Camp Nou. Enjoy in very attractive football match and try to earn some money with our football prediction and betting tips.
