Barcelona vs Athletic Club: Lineups and LIVE updates

Robert Lewandowski 2022-23

Barcelona have been on top form in La Liga this season, having only dropped points on two occasions. They haven’t conceded in their last 5 league games which is their best defensive run since 2011.

Barcelona are also excelling on the attacking front holding the second-best record in the league, with Robert Lewandowski leading the top-scorer charts with 11 goals in 10 games.

However, despite their impressive start to the season, they find themselves in 2nd place behind rivals Real Madrid.
Barcelona will be hoping to secure all 3 points when they host Athletic Club. While Bilbao have also had a strong start to the season, they haven’t won a game in their last 3 games.
Moreover, history doesn’t favour them against Barcelona in Camp Nou. Their winless run of 20 games away to Barca is their second-worst run in the competition. However, Barcelona can’t let the past decide the outcome and will have to bring their best selves.
