Barcelona – Athletic Bilbao

Barcelona will try to make another step towards the title in La Liga, hosting Athletic Bilbao at the Camp Nou. Here are our soccer betting tips for today for this clash.

Barca are a convincing leader in La Liga with 72 points and 8 points advantage in front of Atletico Madrid. After winning the derby with Atletico, it’s clear that the Los Cules are going to celebrate with the title. It’s hard to think that Valverde’s team could miss out on such an opportunity.

So far Barca are unbeaten in the league. They have a record of 22 wins and 6 draws since the beginning of the campaign. In their last five games Barcelona are almost perfect – four wins and one draw against Las Palmas away from home.

Now Ernesto Valverde will meet his former club at the Camp Nou, after beating them once at the San Mames Barria.

Athletic have a difficult transition season after Valverde left to manage Barca. Right now they are 12th in La Liga with 35 points, which is a serious underachievement for such a big club. The Basques have a record of 8 wins, 11 draws and 9 defeats since the start of the campaign. In their last five games they won twice, lost twice and made one draw – a perfect example of their inconsistency this season.

In their last game the Basques won against Leganes with 2-0. It was a fine performance by Athletic. The game was won with two goals from the experienced midfielder Raul Garcia.

Barcelona’s fans are expecting another win in the league, which they believe is already theirs. And we shall think that Barca won’t make a mistake – they know that the league is very close.
