The 2nd Jornada La Liga season 2021-2022 will hold a duel between Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona on Sunday, 22 August 2021 at the San Mames Barria Stadium (Bilbao), at 03:00 WIB.
Athletic Bilbao will again play in the second week of Spanish La Liga against a strong Barcelona team, although so far they have not shown their tajir with a victory.
In the match in its inaugural week yesterday, it had to be willing to share the numbers when it faced host Elche with the final score 1-1.
Although he had shown good performance in the pre-season arena, his work in La Liga again experienced a decline in performance.
Bilbao last season played quite well where they managed to finish in 10th place. The coach Marcelino certainly has to prepare his team's condition ahead of this week's Blaugrana team who are expected to use a 4-4-2 formation.
While Barcelona came with a slick victory in last week's match against Real Sociedad at home, Barca managed to pocket the victory with a score of 4-2.
Barca after being left by Lionel Messi in the new season has successfully shown his tajir, Barcelona is required to be able to play in a slick performance.
On paper, it is clear that Barcelona is more superior in terms of team quality and also the composition of players compared to Bilbao, even though they will appear away.
Barcelona will certainly continue to play with a confident mentality. And coach Ronald Koeman is expected to use an attacking game scheme with a 4-3-3 formation.
