Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao: times, how to watch on TV, how to stream online
All the information you need on how and where to watch Barcelona take on Athletic Bilbao in LaLiga action at Camp Nou on 27 February.
All of a sudden, the sun is shining on Camp Nou. Xavi Hernández appears to have turned a corner with his side after a 4-1 dismantling of Valencia in LaLiga was followed by a 4-2 victory away at Napoli to secure passage in the Europa League, a solid victory against a team Xavi had described as “Champions League quality” before the game and which had travelling fans singing the coach’s name inside the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium after the whistle. Those victories, and the manner in which they were achieved, served to dispel the sensation of a false dawn draws against Espanyol and the Serie A side had thrown up after the 4-2 win over Atlético.
Auba lifts Xavi's Barça
The acquisition of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is looking like the best bit of business Barça have pulled off since signing Pedri for a song from Las Palmas, the Gabon forward netting a hat-trick against Valencia and adding another in Naples to take his tally for the club to four from five appearances, only three of which have been starts, since his arrival from Arsenal.
Athletic will provide a timely litmus test of Barcelona’s current form when the Lions arrive at Camp Nou on Sunday. Marcelino’s side battered Basque rivals Real Sociedad 4-0 last weekend and have won four of their last six in LaLiga, moving to within two points of Villarreal in sixth. However, the Athletic boss has a juggling act to perform with his side facing Valencia in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals on Wednesday. Marcelino was less than happy with the scheduling of Sunday’s clash and may pick a side for Camp Nou with his eye on a place in the Copa final.
The reverse fixture in San Mamés ended 1-1 earlier in the season and the sides met again in the last 16 of the Copa, with Marcelino getting the better of Xavi in a 3-2 win after extra time.
