Previous Meet

Last time these two Spanish clubs met in 2015 Spanish Super Cup first leg match on 14th August in which Athletic Bilbao defeated FC Barcelona by 4-0. Aduriz scored three goals for Athletic Club in the match whereas San Jose hit one goal.


This is going to be a big match for Barcelona team, especially for the defenders in the side as they have conceded 8 goals in the last two matches. Neymar still won’t be available for this game and Messi along with Suarez and Pedro have to do some magic for Barca if club wants to lift Spanish Super Cup. The fact is if FC Barcelona want to win the cup they have to maintain a difference of 5 goals as Athletic Bilbao is leading with 4-0 already.

On the other hand Athletic Club will be very happy with their last performance and team will be again relying on Aduriz who scored three goals in last match. Athletic Bilbao can’t take Barca lightly as the injured lion is more dangerous. Hopefully it will be a great contest.
