Barcelona vs Athletic Club Betting Tips

Having edged past Real Sociedad via penalties on Wednesday, Barcelona faces Athletic Club with Ronald Koeman looking for his first silverware piece as Barcelona boss.

However, it won´t be an easy evening´s work for the Catalan giants who are sweating on lynchpin Leo's fitness following his absence from the midweek success against Sociedad.

With Bilbao claiming the shock upset of Real Madrid on Thursday evening, the Basque based club certainly won´t have any inferiority complex for a match being played at the neutral Estadio de La Cartuja Seville.

Koeman´s Barca has certainly improved in recent weeks and is now unbeaten in their last 9 matches, picking up 6 league wins from 8 during that run including a 3:2 win in Bilbao 6th.

While Athletic did take the lead in that match, Barca was deserved winners with the brilliant Messi scoring twice, and his fitness is surely critical to Barca´s chances of winning here.

Ultimately, I expect Bilbao to make a perfect game of this final and both to score holds plenty of appeal at 1.8 odds. Simultaneously, I would certainly fancy Bilbao to take this one to 90 minutes if the aforementioned Messi is ruled out.

Barca has won the last two meetings between these two sides but failed to win any previous 4. With Marcelino García Toral´s side claiming that impressive scalp of Real in midweek, they will fancy their chances of pushing Koeman´s side all the way in Seville on Sunday.

Barcelona vs Athletic Club Correct Score Prediction

This should be a tight contest with our without Messi, and I fancy Bilbao to force extra-time following a tense 1:1 draw in Seville.
