Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview of the Spanish La Liga match on Tuesday, 23 June 2020. Kick off 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET at the Camp Nou.
Barcelona dropped points in their last match and has fallen short in lead in the race for the title. We can expect a high-scoring affair at Camp Nou when Athletic Bilbao pays a visit to the host.
Messi and co. failed to even score a goal against Sevilla in the last match in their league schedule. The clash ended in a goalless draw at the latter’s home, forcing Barca to the second spot on the basis of goal difference after Real Madrid won against Sociedad.
Camp Nou is the host’s fortress, and they have lost none of their clashes here in the campaign. They are on a seven-game winning streak at home in the league.
Besides, their recent three home matches have ended with a clean sheet in each.
Athletic Bilbao is unbeaten in their last four matches, following a 1-0 home win against Real Betis in their prior encounter in the league.
While Barca hasn’t conceded in the last four overall matches, four of the visitor’s recent five fixtures have seen both teams score in ninety minutes.
ATH has recorded only two wins in their 15 away fixtures in the league until now.
Even though their last two trips turned out as unbeaten games, they suffered three consecutive losses on the road before that across all major competitions.
In the reverse fixture this season, Bilbao defeated Blaugrana with a 1-0 score on the board. Gaizka Garitano and his team cannot hope on retracing that win as they might know well that the host is almost invincible at Camp Nou in the campaign.
- The guest is unbeaten in their last four meetings.
- Two of their recent five fixtures have ended in a draw.
- FCB is unbeaten at home in 22 clashes since 2003.
- Their previous encounter gave a 1-0 home win for ATH.
Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction
It is no doubt that the home team is probably the clear winner in the match.
With magical players like Lionel Messi in their squad, Barca has nothing to worry about when playing at home.
The host has shown the best use of home ground advantage in the campaign.
Barcelona’s unbeaten home streak in the league and poor away form of Bilbao will be the key factors that back their victory in ninety minutes.
The home win in full-time will be the best bet in the clash. At 1.40 odds, it will be the safest tip to yield decent returns for the punters.
Camp Nou has witnessed 47 goals in their 15 home matches so far in the campaign. With the host at a pleasant form at home, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair.
The tip for over 2.5 goals will thus be a suitable option for the punters at 1.57 odds in the game.
Barcelona to win @ 1.40 (2/5).
Over 2.5 goals @ 1.57 (4/7).
