    Barcelona travel to Bilbao, Basque country, for their season opener game against hosts Atheltic Bilbao at San Mamés Stadium.

    MATCH Info: La Liga
    When: August 17, 2019, 12:30 AM
    Where: San Memes Stadium


    Real Madrid’s Galactico signings this season, and Atletico Madrid’s own big arrivals means Barcelona are not expected, at least, to walk away with the league title, something they enjoyed in the last two seasons.

    But the Catalan giants are still looking to add one or two players to their roster which has been improved significantly by the arrival of Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann from Ajax and Atletico Madrid respectively.

    For Atheltic Bilbao, the least target should be the European places.

    Team News:

    Athletic Bilbao:

    • Gorka Guruzeta remains out due to a knee injury.
    • All three, Ibai Gomez, Inigo Cordoba, and Inigo Martinez failed to make the cut in Gaizka Garitano’s squad for the match.
    • Either Ander Capa or oscar de Marcos will start at right-back.
    • Unai Nunez may start at center-back as Inigo Martinez is out of the match.
    • Ibai Gomez is out and that opens a spot for the teammates.
    • Gorka Guruzeta may go with an extra midfielder rather than a forward player.

    Here is Athletic Bilbao squad for the opening fixture against Barcelona:

    U. Simón, Unai Nuñez, Yeray, San José, Beñat, Unai López, Williams, Muniain, Larrazabal, Herrerín, Dani García, Yuri, De Marcos, Aduriz, Capa, Raúl García, Balenziaga, Vivian and Sancet


    • Lionel Messi, Neto and Jean-Clair Todibo all three miss out due to injuries.
    • While Arturo Vidal and Arthur have been left behind by Ernesto Valverde due to the duo’s lack of match fitness.
    • Summer signing Antoine Griezmann is set to play his first competitive game for Barcelona, with Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez completing the front three.
    • Frenkie De Jong is in the squad despite doubts about his inclusion, which means, the former Ajax midfielder is expected to start alongside Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic.

    Here is Barcelona’s squad for Atheltic Bilbao match:

    Marc-André ter Stegen, Iñaki Peña, Nélson Semedo, Gerard Piqué, Clément Lenglet, Jordi Alba, Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo, Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Philippe Coutinho, Rafinha, Carles Aleñá, Sergi Roberto, Frenkie De Jong, Luis Suárez, Ousmane Dembélé, Antoine Griezmann, Carles Pérez

    ATH vs BAR Dream11 Grand League Picks for Captains & Vice-Captains:

    • Inaki Williams: One of the finest players on Atheltic Bilbao’s roster. The 25-year-old is improving his stats every season, and if the trend continues, we could see him dominating the goal scoring charts for Bilbao.

    Last season’s stats:

    • Games: 38
    • Minutes: 3040
    • Goals: 13
    • Assists: 04

    Antoine Griezmann: Barcelona’s already impressive attacking department became even more potent after the arrival of superstar Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

    He will surely be fighting with both Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi for the Golden Shoe at the end of the season and that’s a healthy sign for any squad.

    Last season’s stats:

    • Games: 49
    • Minutes: 3040
    • Goals: 21
    • Assists: 11

    Luis Suarez: His speed may have slowed down, but the Uruguayan remains as effective as he was at any point in his career.

    Last season’s stats:

    • Games: 47
    • Minutes: 3040
    • Goals: 24
    • Assists: 10

    ATH vs BAR Dream11 Grand League Teams:

    • Expect both teams to score. So you can go either with Bilbao’s goalie or Ter Stegen.
    • Bilbao have some good players who can hurt Barcelona. The likes of Raul Garcia, Inaki Williams, and Ike Muniain may fetch you some good points.
    • If you are going with a 6-5 combination, choose six from Barcelona, with at least three midfielders from their side.
