Barcelona vs Athletic: Today 23 Oct Match Prediction 2022
The history of head-to-head matches might help you forecast the match between Barcelona and Athletic. So, in a section of 44 matches, Barcelona enjoys an edge, resulting in 29 victories, eight ties, and seven defeats. Last season, the Blue Garnets cruised to a 4:0 triumph at Camp Nou. Simultaneously, they lost points away by a score of 1:1 and in the King’s Cup by a score of 2:3.
Barcelona defeated Villarreal with a score of 3:0 in the middle of the week after scoring three goals in 10 minutes. The team’s head coach expressed his satisfaction with the performance and outcome while cautioning his players to keep their foot on the gas pedal. After all, the leader still has a three-point advantage after Real Madrid’s loss. For the first time since 1997, the Catalans have a chance to win their fifth straight home game in this game.
While Bilbao is a highly favorable opponent for the squad, the “blue garnet” at Camp Nou have never let up a goal at home, and Athletic hasn’t defeated the team on the road since November 2001. The hosts’ fate in the Champions League was unfortunate because their prospects of making the playoffs were all but gone before the fifth round. With Inter (3:3), a tie resulted in only four points and third place in the rankings.
Depay, who has a muscular problem, Christensen, and Araujo will be unable to participate today.
Athletic’s losing skid was extended to three games by Getafe on Tuesday (2:2), putting the squad to sixth place in the standings after 10 games. This number represents Bilbao’s greatest start in the Primera since 2014, when the team ultimately placed fourth.
While there is minimal prospect of winning, a loss here might lead to relegation from the top six. Ernesto Valverde, the head coach of the Basques, has a bad reputation for losing 15 games in a row against Barcelona. While there is optimism for seasoned performers, the “lions” did not lose this season on the road.
Inaki Williams comes to mind, who on Tuesday made his 350th appearance for the Red-and-Whites and scored in the second minute. Since the start of 2019, Inaki Williams has scored three goals in the opening two minutes, which is more than any other La Liga player. Capa and Morcillo won’t be able to participate today due to an ankle ailment.
Our Prediction Today
We think the visitors have no chance. The Catalans do not have the right to lose tournament points on their field, which today might cost them the championship once more. Barcelona is a cut and run more strong in terms of composition and budget, while all the players are motivated. Additionally, there are bonuses and the assistance of the stands on the side of the “blue garnet,” which will finally result in another triumph.
