Barcelona enters this game with things going well for Xavi’s club. The Catalan giants are unblemished in the league after defeating Napoli 4-2 in the Europa League. The last time they hosted this competition, they defeated Atletico Madrid 4-2, definitely a scoreline they like.
Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao live score, updates, highlights & lineups today
Athletic Bilbao will not be daunted, however. They knocked Barcelona out of the Copa del Rey earlier in the season, and held them to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture. With four wins from their last six league games, and only one loss, the visitors are lining up their own tilt at European qualification.
Athletic have only lost two away games in the league this year, but history isn’t on their side in this one. The last time they won away to Barcelona in the league was November 2001, a game in which Xavi played. In the 19 matches since then, they’ve avoided defeat only three times.
93rd min: GOAL!
Xavi applauds from his technical area as his team pass the ball around for fun. They decide to do something with it and work it out to right. It’s with Dembele again, and he repeats the trick. This time on his right, he curls the ball to drop just inside the six yard box, and Memphis is left with an easy finish.
90th min: GOAL!
Luuk De Jogn gets Barca’s third. It starts with great work from Pedri to evade pressure in his own half, before the ball is sprayed out wide to Dembele. On the right, he carries the ball inside before lofting the ball on his left to the edge of the six yard area. De Jong rises, unmarked, and it’s an easy finish for him to flick the ball into the net.
88th min: Pique is a lucky boy. Inaki Williams spins him, and Pique, who is already booked, pulls back on the attacker’s shirt. Araujo, who has generally been alert to danger throughout the game, is across to cover quickly.
86th min: An Inaki Williams snapshot forces Ter Stegen into a save, after Athletic force a mistake high up the pitch. It’s the best chance they’ve had in a while. Barca make two more changes, Busquets is replaced by Nico, and Aubameyang is off for Luuk de Jong.
82nd min: Memphis is on, for Adama who leads the pitch on the far side. Athletic try to get the ball forward, but they just can’t hold onto it.
81st min: Pedri, whose every touch seems like a work of art, has his name chanted by the fans around the stadium. Athletic have fallen away somewhat here, and they’ll need to rally quickly if they’re to get something from the game. Memphis looks like he’s about to come on as De Jong gets a weak header on an Adama Traore cross.
76th min: Really nice play from Pedri and Dani Alves in the right back spot to play out while under pressure, with a little help from Araujo. The Camp Noi is in party mode now, as Dembele is found on the left once more. He opens his body up, but leans back too far and his shot goes over. For Athletic, Inaki Williams comes on for Villalibre.
73rd min: GOAL!
An absolute scorcher from Dembele. De Jong’s ball round the corner finds him on the left. He strolls into the box and stands up his man, feinting on his right before driving to his left. From a tight angle he rifles the ball past Unai Simon.
70th min: It’s a quick break from Barca, which sees Ousmane Dembele finding De Jong overlapping him on his left. The Dutchman’s cross finds Aubameyang, but he’s too far out to really trouble the keeper with it.
67th min: It’s a double change from Xavi. Ousmane Dembele, who doesn’t get a warm reception from the home fans, and Frenkie de Jong on for Ferran Torres and Gavi. Athletic bring on Nico Williams and Dani Garcia for Vesga and Zarraga.
66th min: Villalibre gets a yard of separation from Pique, and gets his head on a cross from the left. He can only direct it into the defender, but it’s a reminder to Barcelona that they can’t rest on their laurels.
64th min: Big save! Ferran pounces on a mix up at the back to carry the ball through on goal. He drives into the area and, with just Simon to beat, he puts his foot through the ball. He doesn’t have the placement though, and Unai Simon is equal to the shot. A big chance goes begging.
62nd min: Ferran Torres strikes the dead ball after a short run up, but it only hits the ball.
61st min: Pedri’s pinpoint diagonal finds Adama Traore in space. He takes the ball down and carries the ball into the area, before bobbling a cross along the edge of the six yard box, but the chance is cut out before Aubameyang can take it. Barca come again, Aubameyang flicks it back and the ball is played into Gavi, who is brought down just inside the D. It’s a Barca free kick, Araujo standing over it.
57th min: Athletic have looked much more comfortable in this half. They work the ball up the pitch, into Villalibre, who holds it up and looks to turn and play Sancet in. He overhits the pass, but it’s the right idea.
53rd min: Serginho Dest has to be alert on the cover, not for the first time. Athletic have a throw in on the right hand side. It looks like the routine might come to something, but Zarraga’s cut back doesn’t find anyone.
A deserved one goal lead for Barca. The game slowed down after they took the lead, and Athletic will be relieved that they’re going in only one goal down.
44th min: Yeray is still receiving medical attention, and Marcelino isn’t happy about the elbow he received. The defender is allowed back onto the pitch and cuts out a pass that would have found Adama Traore in space almost immediately.
42nd min: Yeray is down briefly, after receiving an elbow from Adama Traore. It doesn’t look serious. The defender has generally done well in the first half, but his team are down to ten as he’s assessed on the sideline.
39th min: Pedri, who has been influential throughout the half, bisects the Athletic Club defence to find a man in space, but the resulting cross is cut out.
37th min: GOAL!
Pique’s header from a left sided corner cannons off the bar, and falls to Aubameyang on the edge of the six yard box. The forward pulls off an acrobatic finish as he falls backwards, and rifles the ball into the back of the net.
35th min: It’s an Athletic counter which looks promising, and finds Villalibre in the box. He tries to stand up Araujo before knocking the ball past him, but the defender is too strong for him, and the chance comes to nothing.
32nd min: Adama carries the ball through the centre, driving through bodies. He passed out to Aubameyang, in the left channel, edge of the area. Aubameyang keeps the ball moving to Ferran on the overlap, who takes a shot which is saved by Simon.
31st min: Adama teases a cross into the area from the right hand side. Aubameyang attacks it in the vicinity of the penalty spot, just failing to get anything on it.
28th min: A headed 1-2 sees Villalibre get in behind the Barcelona defence. He attacks the left channel, and runs through on goal, shooting from a wide angle. It’s held by Ter Stegen.
26th min: Barca move it quickly to find Adama in space on the right. He carries the ball forward and fires in a cross. The home fans appeal for a handball, optimistically. It came off the defender’s waist.
24th min: It’s an Athletic Club counter. Pique clears a cross the left, which falls to Vesga outside of the area. His shot is off target.
22nd min: Aubameyang finds himself out on the left, with Ferran moving inside. The two combine, as Aubameyang crosses for his teammate, but Ferran’s effort is less than convincing. Ferran gets another shot from outside the area after Barca work it down the left again, but it’s a speculative effort that doesn’t threat the target.
20th min: Barca work it well down the left. It ends with Ferran on the byline, who cuts back onto his right and rolls it back into the area. Gavi, running onto the ball with the whole goal to aim for, blasts over. At the other end, Athletic manage a potentially threatening attack, but Dest is on hand to ensure it ends with a harmless shot from outside the area.
18th min: It’s all a bit scrappy from Athletic as a combination of Ferran and Pique get on the end of a Dani Alves corner. It doesn’t end in a goal, but the visiting defenders looked less than comfortable. Athletic have the ball briefly, but it’s back with the home side now.
14th min: Pedri’s lofted ball into the area is grasped by the keeper. Barca are still seeing pretty much all of the ball. While Athletic are coping for the time being, the Barcelona attacks don’t stop coming.
12th min: Barca have tried a couple of diagonals, to find Adama and Ferran Torres in space. Nothing has come from them yet, but expect it to be a theme. Athletic still struggling to keep the ball, Villalibre and Raul Garcia will need to hold the ball up better.
9th min: Adama Traore finds a yard of space and fires the ball across goal from the byline. It’s blocked by Yeray, and Barca have a corner. Athletic don’t look too troubled just yet, but they’ll need an outlet. There’s a bit of a mixup at the back, but Dest’s pace shuts down Villalibre.
6th min: It’s a strong start from the hosts, but Unai Simon hasn’t had too much work yet. Ferran Torres heads a cross back across the edge of the six yard area, but it’s over Aubameyang, and play is stopped for offside.
2:24pm: Inaki Williams starts on the bench for Athletic Club. Could he be their supersub?
