Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona: Preview, match facts, broadcast listings - February 10

February 9, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
With Barcelona possibly missing their star man, can Athletic Bilbao get something out of this upcoming fixture? LiveSoccerTV's match preview provides team news, match facts, and global broadcast listings for Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona, kicking off at 14:45 EST (20:45 CET).

Current form: Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona

Following their Clasico clash against Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey, Barcelona now have to turn their attention towards a potentially tricky away fixture against Athletic Bilbao. Ernesto Valverde's side will be bitterly disappointed with their 1-1 draw against Los Blancos at Camp Nou, but of major concern is the condition of star man Lionel Messi. The Argentinian superstar did come on during the Copa del Rey clash, but looked far from his very best as he is still recovering from an injury and Valverde may be unwilling to risk him for this game especially with their Champions League campaign kicking off soon and two more Clasicos coming up in just a few weeks time.

Samuel Umtiti and Arthur remain on the treatment table for the visitors, who will also be missing Jordi Alba as a result of a ban. However, Sergio Busquets returns to the fold after completing his own suspension and thus will be reinstated back in his normal position at the heart of Barcelona's midfield.

Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao come into this game having lost 2-1 to Real Sociedad last weekend, which ended their eight-game unbeaten streak in La Liga. Gaizka Garitano's arrival had sparked a remarkable improvement in the Basque side's performances, and the loss marks his first in La Liga since taking over a couple of months ago. Naturally, hosting league leaders Barcelona, who have lost just two league fixtures this season, is a daunting task, but the Blaugrana could be likely missing Messi for this fixtures. Additionally, they struggled against Valencia in a 2-2 draw and despite beating Girona 2-0 in their last away match, it was far from an assured performance. Will Bilbao, who are unbeaten in their last six at home, prove to be a banana peel for the league leaders?
