Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona: how and where to watch - times, TV, online

Athletic Bilbao host Barcelona on Wednesday evening in a rescheduled fixture from September corresponding to match week two of the 2020-21 season, a game that will be broadcast live on Fanatiz in the US.

For Ronald Koeman’s side it represents a final game in hand and a chance to close the gap to table toppers Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid, who are second with an eight-point advantage over Barça.

Athletic sit in ninth and took the opportunity over the festive break to install Marcelino as head coach, the former Valencia schemer replacing Gaizka Garitano. The last time Marcelino took on Barça was in the 2019 Copa del Rey final, where he masterminded a 2-1 victory to seal the title for Los Che.

Barcelona have hardly been scoring for fun recently and scraped past Huesca by a single goal at the weekend, giving Marcelino a reason to rub his hands together at the prospect of renewing acquaintances.

Koeman remains under the microscope after a 1-1 home draw against Eibar before the Huesca win provided a welcome three points and new manager bounce, plus Marcelino’s penchant for giving Barça a lively 90 minutes, should provide plenty of interest at San Mamés.
