Spanish La Liga is back with us! Tonight at 20:00 GMT 0 at Nou Camp Barcelona hosts Athletic Bilbao in a game from Round 21 of La Liga.
The first game for 2021 at Nou Camp
It is the first game at Nou Camp for 2021. Quite curiously, Barcelona played 8 games in January for now and all of them were played away – 4 domestic league games, 2 Super Cup games, 2 Copa Del Rey games. If Barcelona wins today, they will equal Real Madrid in the 2nd place even with a far better goal-difference. Gerrard Pique and Philippe Coutinho are with long-term injuries, Sergio Busquets is suspended, Ansu- Fati is expected to return in February after recovery of a knee injury.
Bilbao on fire under Marcelino
Since the appointment of Marcelino in the managerial position at Bilbao, the team won the Super Cup eliminating Real Madrid and Barcelona. Bilbao also reached the quarter-finals of Copa Del Rey after beating Ibiza and Alcoyano. The team smashed Getafe 5-1 and showed that the ambitions of the Basque club are more than a comfortable place in the middle of the table.
At first, we expect plenty of goals tonight. It is quite possible to see Bilbao scoring as well. There will be some tension on the pitch, so we expect to see some cards as well.
