Match Preview


Barcelona will be looking to make it five La Liga victories in a row when they continue their 2020-21 campaign at home to a revitalised Athletic Bilbao on Sunday night.

Ronald Koeman's side have picked up 12 points from their last four matches to move into third position in the table, but they are still 10 points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, who also have a game in hand.

Barca have not been without their problems this season, but the Catalan giants now have their sights on second-placed Real Madrid in Spain's top flight, having won their last four in the league against Huesca, Athletic Bilbao, Granada and Elche during a strong run of form.

Koeman's side are just three points behind the reigning champions in the table, but as mentioned, they sit 10 points off leaders Atletico, who also have a game in hand, which is an indication of the capital outfit's strength at the summit heading into the business end of the season.

Barca lost 3-2 to Athletic in the final of the Spanish Super Cup on January 17 but recorded a 3-2 victory over the same opponents in the league when they locked horns on January 6.

As well as four straight league victories, the Catalan giants also progressed to the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday night courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano, with Lionel Messi and Frenkie de Jong scoring in the latter stages of the contest at Estadio de Vallecas.

Barca will be determined to continue their strong domestic form but will also certainly have one eye on their upcoming Champions League last-16 clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

As mentioned, Athletic beat Barca 3-2 in the final of the Spanish Super Cup on January 17, with Inaki Williams scoring what proved to be the winner on a famous night for the club in Seville.

Like their opponents here, Los Leones have also progressed to the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey, recording a 2-1 victory over Alcoyano on Thursday night to advance.

Marcelino's side have actually won each of their last five games in all competitions since the 3-2 loss to Barca in the league, including a 5-1 home success over Getafe in Spain's top flight last weekend.

A record of 24 points from 19 matches has left Athletic in ninth position in the table, just four points off seventh-placed Granada, and they will certainly enter this weekend's contest in a confident mood.
