Bilbao vs Barcelona: Tips and prediction – 08.02.2015

By on February 8, 2015
Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona will be face to face today from 20:00, UK Time, this one being a crucial game for both teams. It is part of the 22th fixture in La Liga and the catalans are in pole-position.
Athletic Bilbao are coming after a good win recorded last weekend, 2-0 away against Levante, so they ended a very bad run of results. The bascs managed to win only 23 points so far and they seem to be only a shadow of what they were last campaign when they fought for Top 4. Bilbao are on the 13th place at the moment and a victory today will take them on the 10th position. Iraola (suspended) is the only missing player for Bilbao.
Barcelona will have two missing player, Vermaelen and Douglas. It is possible to see Luis Suarez in the centre of the attacking line, with Messi dropped on the right flank. Barca are coming after four wins in a row in Primera Division and they have a good opportunity to approach Real Madrid after the galactics were humiliated by Atletico Madrid yesterday. 
Bilbao vs Barcelona probable lineups:
Bilbao (4-2-3-1): Iraizoz – Marcos, Etxeita, Laporte, Balenziaga – Jose, Rico – Susaeta, Benat, Muniain – Aduriz.
Barcelona (4-3-3): Bravo – Alves, Pique, Mascherano, Alba – Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta – Messi, Suarez, Neymar.
Prediction: Barcelona -1.0 AH @ 1.48
We expect Barcelona to confirm their superiority against a much weaker team and against an out of form side like Athletic Bilbao. If we will see a victory with only one goal difference, our money will be refunded.
The best odds for Bilbao vs Barcelona: 9.00 – 5.25 – 1.33
