Sunday 8pm: Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao
TV: ITV4

Barcelona -1

Real Madrid handed Barcelona their first La Liga defeat of the season last weekend, with Carlo Ancelotti’s men winning 3-1 at the Bernabeu. Barcelona bounced back in the week with a 3-0 win against Villarreal in midweek and they’ll be hopeful of starting a new winning run when they host Athletic Bilbao on Sunday night.

Barcelona are just three points behind their rivals at the top of La Liga, while Real Sociedad sit a further three points back in third place.

We’re expecting Barcelona to win, however, the odds aren’t worth getting behind. Instead, we’re going with Barcelona -1 on the Handicap betting.

Xavi’s men have scored 24 goals and conceded just four times in La Liga, so we’re expecting that trend to continue.

Robert Lewandowski To Have 3 Or More Shots On Target

Robert Lewandowski has been sensational – as expected – since his move from Bayern Munich to Barcelona in the summer.

The Polish hitman has netted 16 goals in 13 starts in La Liga and the Champions League this season.

Lewandowski scored twice in Barcelona’s 3-0 win against Villarreal on Thursday night and he’s always on the hunt for goals.

He averages just under five shots per game and we’re backing him to test the keeper a few times. Lewandowski To Have 3 Or More Shots On Target is the next leg of our Bet Builder.

Ousmane Dembele To Score Or Assist

While Lewandowski occupies the No. 9 position for Barcelona, Xavi mixes up who starts on the wings. Ansu Fati, Raphinha, Ousmane Dembele and Ferran Torres have all been deployed as wingers this season.

Fati scored and played 75 minutes in the Villarreal win so we’re expecting Dembele to start against Bilbao on Sunday.

The former Borussia Dortmund man has netted three times and chipped in with four assists in all competitions this season.

The tricky winger, who is also lightning quick, will be whipping crosses into Lewandowski all game and he also averages 2.3 shots per match. We like the look of Dembele To Score Or Assist and it seems relatively good value too.

Inaki Williams To Have 1 Or More Shots On Target

Inaki Williams is Bilbao’s main man and the striker has already netted four times this season. Barcelona have a brilliant defensive record this campaign, with Xavi’s men conceding just four times in ten games, so instead of backing Williams to score, we’ll get on him to test Marc Andre ter Stegen.

Williams To Have 1 Or More Shots On Target makes plenty of sense considering the forward averages three shots per game.
