Athletic Bilbao hoping to repeat their Super Cup triumph

After losing to Real Sociedad 1-0 earlier this month in the 2019-2020 delayed final match, Bilbao now face Barcelona in the 2020-2021 climax whom they defeated in the 2019-2020 quarter-finals and also in this year’s Super Cup final.

Only Barcelona have won more titles than the 23-time winners Bilbao, who fought their way to the final after being down in all of their five fixtures even against lowly teams like Ibiza and Alcoyano. In their three encounters with first division teams, Bilbao needed extra time to get through to the next round after all three matches finished 1-1 at full time.

Bilbao won just one of their last seven games, of which four were drawn, two of them against La Liga’s bottom clubs Alaves and Eibar.

Barcelona eyeing a domestic double

After a slow start to the season, Barcelona are back o track for a domestic double even though they suffered a setback by losing the Classico at the weekend but they are still just two points away from Atletico Madrid the La Liga leaders but with eight matches still to be played the Atletico to visit Camp Nou in a couple of weeks, all doors are still open for Barca.

Apart from the 1st leg loss in the semi-final, Barcelona didn’t face many difficulties like their opponents to reach the final. Similarly, Ronald Koeman’s secured two of their wins on the road to the final after conceding first. In three of their four matches, Barca scored two goals in regulation time. 

The loss in the Classico was Barca’s first in nine matches in all competitions. Koeman felt they could even win the Classico or at least draw. His team is playing their best football of the season and are poised to win this trophy for the 31st time.

Key Stats

  • Bilbao have scored just three goals in their last six matches
  • Bilbao haven’t won in six matches
  • Barcelona have seven wins in their last nine matches
  • Barcelona have scored in all of their last 12 games

Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona Prediction

Athletic Bilbao will fancy their chances in this match after their Super Cup final win might give them hope that they are capable of beating Barca. The Blaugrana are in a much better form though and as the season end is near, Barca are the kind of team who are able to grab titles.

If we look at the goals market for this match we find the bookies are paying 1.57 for under 3.5 goals. In Barca’s last ten matches eight of them finished in under 3.5 goals and in Bilbao’s last ten matches, all of them ended in under 3.5 goals. We will back this bet.
