Camp Nou will serve as the host for the match between Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao in the 26th game week of La Liga on 28th February 2021 at 01:30 IST. The odds are slightly in favor of Barcelona to win the match at home.

Tipster’s Angle

Barcelona has done exceptionally well in recent times after a really bad start to the season, even Bilbao is also gaining some momentum. So, a cracker of a contest is on the cards which might slightly tend towards Barcelona as they are playing at home.

Tip: Barcelona To Win @ 1.62

Barcelona has won four of their last eight games with Athletic Bilbao, with the latter winning two and the remaining game ending in a tie. In the last two seasons of La Liga, Barcelona has gone undefeated against Athletic Bilbao. Athletic Bilbao last defeated Barcelona in a competitive La Liga match in 2019. In all competitions, Barcelona has won five of its last nine matches. Athletic Bilbao has won six, drawn two, and lost two of their last ten matches in all competitions. Barcelona has won all five of its La Liga games this season. Barcelona is likely to win at 1.62 odds provided at the Melbet sportsbook because they are playing at home.

Tip: Total Goals Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.85

Athletic Bilbao has seen over 2.5 goals in five of their past 10 games in all competitions. In six of Barcelona’s last 10 matches in all competitions, over 2.5 goals have been scored. Furthermore, Athletic Bilbao has scored more than 2.5 goals in two of their past two La Liga games, while Barcelona has scored more than 2.5 goals in all three of their recent La Liga games. In five of the last seven head-to-head meetings, more than 2.5 goals have been scored. In addition, in the just-finished Copa del Rey encounter between these two teams, nearly 2.5 goals were scored. As a result, at 1.85 odds from Betway, this match might have over 2.5 goals.


Still, the league title is far away from them, but they have a shot at the top four finish this season despite a bad start. Even Athletic Bilbao is not that far behind from a top-six finish themselves, but they need to keep their momentum going for that.
