Athletic Club vs Barcelona Prediction 16 August 2019

Tournament: Spanish La Liga
Location: San Mames Barria Stadium
Match date: 16.08.2019 at 20:00

On August 16 2019 at 20:00 at the San Mames Barria Stadium in Bilbao in the upcoming regular match of the first game week of the Spanish national elite divison Primera the local athletic will play against their guests Barcelona. This is going to be the match between the solid middle-peasants of the league and the champions of the last few years. Both teams are definitely eager to start the season with a positive result.

Athletic had a very poor first round of the previous championship and yet in the end they managed to improve their performance and finish the league on the eighth position. This summer the Lions were preparing for the new challenges and were definitely planning to get back to the group of the teams fighting for the places in the Euro Cups zone. They played eight friendly matches in which they won four times, drew three times and lost once.

The experts think that Barcelona have really good chances of winning another champions title after they have already won two. During the preseason campaign the Catalonians kept all of their leaders and got a few new players of the higher quality. They played five friendly matches in which they won four times and only lost once playing against Chelsea.

Despite the fact that Athletic seem to have learned how to play against Barcelona, they are still now very likely to win this time. Although, we don’t think that the hosts are going to win with a big goal difference this time.
