Starting XI: Barca v Bilbao

Spanish LaLiga 

Teams: FC Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao

Date: 29 September 2018

Venue: Camp Nou

FC Barcelona will be looking to bounce back in LaLiga when they host Athletic Bilbao this afternoon.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 16h15.

The Catalan giants tasted defeat for the first time on Wednesday evening, after going down 2-1 to Leganes in a game where they took the lead.

However, Ernesto Valverde's charges remain top of the LaLiga standings as Real Madrid suffered a 3-0 defeat to Sevilla on the same day.

Bilbao, meanwhile, have tasted victory since their opening day triumph over Leganes.

Since then, the Basque club have gone four games without a win in the league, and they head into the clash on the back of 3-0 loss to Villarreal.

In head-to-head statistics, these two have clashed on 63 occasions, with Barca registering 42 wins compared to nine for Bilbao, while 12 matches have ended all square.
