Expert Betting Tips
We're favouring the home side to win in this pairing, but we wouldn't recommend writing off the visitors. Athletic surprised everyone in their last match by defeating a team of the same level, Real Sociedad. After that, the team is clearly in the heat and will try to get a second win in a row. On the other hand, Barcelona is quietly recovering, and with each game, the team's play is visibly improving. Overall, we think the opponents will manage to reach a total over, and the hosts won't lose. Prediction: Barcelona won't lose + Total Over (2.5).
