Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After dropping two points in a goalless draw with Sevilla, Barcelona will be looking to get back on course when they face Athletic Club on Tuesday evening. Barca are eyeing their eighth consecutive win at home ground, but keep in mind that they will be without important midfielder Frankie de Jong against Athletic Club. Anyhow, Leo Messi and Co. are likely to fight tooth and nail against Lions as Real Madrid are breathing down their neck.
Athletic Club, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Real Betis at the weekend, with Inigo Martinez scoring the only goal of the match. The Basques continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and given the importance of Tuesday’s clash for Barca, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Quique Setien’s troops. In the first half of the season Athletic defeated Barcelona at San Mames, meaning that the Catalan giants are hungry for revenge.
