Spanish La Liga — Athletic Bilbao VSFC Barcelona
First of all, let’s take a look at the team news.
Athletic Bilbao: Strong at home
Athletic are unbeaten in 2019 in front of their fans in league matches. Nonetheless, ‘Los Leones’ are up for a tough challenge on Friday in La Liga opener at San Mames against Barcelona. “Like every year, Barça always have good players. We will try to fight, bite them and try to win with the support of our people. You all see them play, they are very good and at any time they mess with you. Everyone’s concentration will be fundamental to try to get something positive,” said midfielder Unai Lopez. Córdoba, Ibai Gómez, Iñigo Martínez, Yuri are doubts.
Probable line-ups: Simon; Capa, Yeray, Nunez, Yuri; Unai Lopez, David Garcia; De Marcos, Raul Garcia, Muniain; Williams
Barcelona: Want to win all titles
Barcelona are the title holders, but they disappointed in May in other competitions (UEFA Champions League and Copa del Rey) so there’s room for improvement. Now it’s time for an away encounter. “It is certainly a complicated game to start. We know the potential of Athletic in San Mamés. I think there was already a first league game a few years ago there and it will be complicated because they have made a good preseason, in which they maintain the dynamics of the previous year with pressure up, effectiveness, enthusiasm. We want to start off on the right foot and try to win the third consecutive league, which has not happened many times in the history of the club,” said coach Ernesto Valverde. Neto and Messi are ruled out.
Probable line-ups: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, de Jong; Dembele, Suarez, Griezmann
