Buoyed by a routine 3-0 win over Villarreal, Barcelona will look to put an extra pressure on league leaders Real Madrid when they face Athletic Club in yet another home fixture.
Barca seem to have recovered from the El Clasico defeat, but Sunday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for Xavi’s troops.
A man to watch in the home side will be Robert Lewandowski, who scored a brace in the midweek triumph, while summer signing Raphinha and experienced midfielder Sergio Busquets are both pushing for a start.
There are no fresh injury worries in the home team. The Lions, on the other hand, failed to win the previous three league fixtures, and given their poor record at Camp Nou, we predict that the visiting side will return home empty-handed.
Capa and Morcillo should be the only absentees in the away side.
