Barcelona and Athletic will play on Sunday, starting at 9:00 p.m., at the Camp Nou, behind closed doors, in a match belonging to the 21st day of LaLiga Santander.
The game is very morbid, since the outcome of the Super Cup left the Blaugranas very touched and made wild beasts of the lions.
Barça reached the clash after overcoming Rayo in the Cup with many difficulties. Messi saw the door again and De Jong showed that he is ready to pull the Blaugrana car, taking advantage of his scoring side. Koeman will leave the rotations and will stage his best eleven (in which the recovered Sergi Roberto may have a hole). At Can Barça they are aware that they cannot give up points if they want to keep alive their hopes (somewhat remote) of being able to fight for the league title against Atleti and Real Madrid. They will do everything possible to complete their vendetta against those of Bilbao.
Athletic has been unleashed since Marcelino arrived on the bench. Iker Muniain, Raúl García and Iñaki Williams are playing at an excellent level and even Unai Simón seems to be the same as before, as demonstrated by stopping Jaime Mata from a penalty in the win (5-1) against Getafe. High pressure and air dominance are being key in this new Athletic that seems to be able to with all the other teams in the League.
