La Liga

Teams: Athletic Bilbao v Barcelona

Date: 8 February 2015

Venue: San Mames Barria

Barcelona will look to keep the pressure on title rivals Real Madrid when they clash with Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
 
The Catalans are enjoying a superb run of form, having only lost one game since November. However, they remain four points behind Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.
 
Meanwhile, Athletic are stuck in mid-table and have found it difficult to score goals this season. They have only managed 18 goals so far this term.
 
In contrast, Lionel Messi and Neymar have racked up 54 goals between them this season.

Here's how the teams line up:

Athletic Bilbao: Iraizoz, De Marcos, Balenziaga, Etxeita, Laporte, San José, Mikel Rico, Unai López, Susaeta, Aduriz, Muniain.

Barcelona: Bravo; Alves, Piqué, Mathieu, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Xavi, Rakitić; Neymar, Messi, Luis Suárez
