Barcelona vs Athletic Preview

Friday night's goalless draw against Sevilla was a blow for Barca as the defence of their title is no longer in their own hands.

If Real Madrid win all their games it will be Zidane's men who will end as champions, and while there will surely be plenty of twists and turns to come, the psychological aspect of losing that advantage could be important.

Barca will be aiming to bounce back quickly with a victory and since returning the Catalans have kept three consecutive clean sheets.

This bodes well for Setien's side as Athletic struggle for goals, with their total of 33 strikes in 30 games the worst return of any team in the top 12 of the table.

The Basques have failed to score in four of their last six games against Barcelona in La Liga and there could be some interest in opposing them to score once again.

Barcelona vs Athletic Tips And Predictions 

Barca to keep a clean sheet is priced at 6/5 (2.20) and should be an interesting option given their defensive record as well as Athletic's poor attacking form.
