FC Barcelona - Athletic Club Bilbao betting tip & odds comparison 27.02.2022

Betting Tip for matchday 26 of the 2021/2022 Primera División between FC Barcelona and Athletic Club Bilbao. The game will be played at Spotify Camp Nou (Barcelona, Spain) on 27.02.2022 at 21:00.

Barcelona will host Athletic Bilbao in Game Week 26 of the La Liga season as they look to continue their resurgence under Xavi.

The Catalans will be hoping to pick up what will be their first win of the season against Bilbao in their third attempt after managing a draw in the first leg and an extra-time defeat in the Copa del Rey.

We will consider odds from BetFox GH and Bet9ja for our betting tips for this fixture.

BARCELONA

Since losing to Real Betis at the Camp Nou in December, Barcelona have gone on a nine-game unbeaten run, winning five and drawing four times in that period.

The Blaugrana have moved up to the fourth position on the log as a result of that good run but with Atletico Madrid breathing heavily on their neck, they can’t afford to drop points in this game.

Xavi’s men have scored fifteen times in their last five outings, with eight of those coming in their last two games against Valencia and Napoli but they also have a leaky defence, conceding at least once in each of their last five games.

ATHLETIC CLUB

Athletic Bilbao are also coming into this game in decent form. The Basque club have lost just once in their last seven outings(5 wins, 1 draw).

Marcelino García’s side put four past Real Sociedad last weekend as they continue their push for one of the European places and another win at the Camp Nou will leave them just two points off their host who occupy the fourth spot before the first game this week.

‘Los Leones’ have already faced Barca twice this season, a 1-1 draw in their second league game of the season and last month’s Copa del Rey Round 16 extra-time triumph. They will however be wary of their recent record at the Camp Nou where they have picked up one point from a possible 18 on their last six league visits.

BETTING PREDICTIONS FOR BARCELONA VS ATHLETIC BILBAO

Barcelona are currently enjoying a new lease of life and they are scoring goals with reckless abandon. The Blaugrana have scored four goals on three occasions in their last five matches across all competitions including their last two games against Valencia and Napoli.

Their opponents Athletic Bilbao have also done their bit of goalscoring. Last time they plundered four goals against Real Sociedad in addition to the seven scored in four games previously.

Barcelona could be considered for an outright win in this game, but their recent head-to-head record suggests Bilbao can hold their own against Barcelona with two wins and a draw in the last five games.

So, to be on the safe side, we are backing Barcelona to win or draw and Over 2.5 (Double Chance 1X & Over 2.5 Goals). Bet9ja mobile is offering this Double Chance combo at 2.12. BetFox is offering both options separat, going with an odd of 1.17 for the 1X Double Chance and with an odd of 1.85 for Over 2.5 goals in this contest.
