Soccer Prediction for 29 September 2018 – Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao
Barcelona must forget two bad results in La Liga, as they have just been beaten by Leganes, because the Catalan giants will play a game that is no less heavy this weekend. Barcelona will host one of the mid-table teams, Athletic Bilbao. The 7th Jornada match will take place on Saturday night (09/29) at Estadio Camp Nou.
Lionel Messi and team started the campaign this season with good results, but in their last two league games, Ernesto Valverde’s team never won with a one-time hold of draws and one defeat. Barcelona’s defeat was swallowed when they visited the Leganes headquarters. However, playing at home against Bilbao, Barcelona is more favored to win in the match.
Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao is still one of the toughest opponents in La Liga so far. But, at the beginning of the season, the Basque club recorded an unsatisfactory performance with only one win in their last five matches in all competitions and held back three draws.
