Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao tips – Barca massive favourites

Barcelona sit ten points behind Atletico Madrid in the 2020/21 Primera Liga title having played a game more and the Catalan side need to embark on a winning run if they’re to land the Spanish Liga title this season, with Ronald Koeman’s side having dropped too many points this season.

Barca have only managed to win eleven of their nineteen games this season although they are enjoying an excellent unbeaten run right now and they haven’t lost a game since being turned over by Juventus in the Champions League at the beginning of December.

Can Barcelona Still Challenge for La Liga Title?

If you compare Spanish football betting odds, then Barcelona are trading as third favourites to win the 2020/21 La Liga title this season, with Koeman’s side as big as 9/1 to get the better of their Madrid rivals and they are starting to rack up the points home and away.

There are still enough matches for Barca to challenge hard for the title and they are overwhelming betting favourites to get the better of Athletic Bilbao, with Messi and Co priced at 2/5 to win this game and they will be a popular football accumulator pick to get the points.

Athletic Bilbao are the betting outsiders to win at the Nou Camp and Marcelino’s side have only won one match on the road this term, while they are scoring an average of less than one goal per away game and might not put up too much resistance in this clash.

Crazily enough, Bilbao have managed to recently knock out Real Madrid and Barcelona out of the Spanish Super Cup in recent weeks, so perhaps they are capable of springing a surprise and the visitors are priced at 13/2 to edge out their opponents and make life difficult when it comes to the title race.

Bet on Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao Goals Betting Market

Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao have met twice recently and both matches were high-scoring affairs. Their clash at San Mames on Wednesday 6 January saw Barca come away with a 3-2 victory thanks to a brace from Lionel Messi after the home team had gone into an early lead.

Then the teams met again in the Super Cup and Athletic took their revenge by twice coming from behind to take the tie into extra-time before winning in added time and they look like dangerous opponents for this clash.

Therefore, the most attractive La Liga betting markets for this match could be Total Goals or Both Teams to Score. You can get football betting odds as big as 4/5 when it comes to the BTTS Yes betting option and that means a healthy return if both of these Spanish Primera Liga teams find the net during the ninety minutes.

The Under / Over 2.5 Goals betting line is also worth checking out and it should be noted that Barcelona have had few problems scoring goals recently, with punters able to secure betting odds of 4/7 about three or more goals being scored and many punters will have those 3-2 scorelines in mind.

For those customers wanting to bet on Barcelona to win, then you can consider Barca + BTTS Yes and there are odds of 17/10 about a home victory and both sides to find the net. The visitors are clearly capable of finding the net and there’s a chance of making a more profitable return than backing the home win on the Full-Time Result betting market.

Barcelona can also be backed at 11/10 to lead at half-time and full-time, with Koeman looking for his side to come flying out of the traps and land another important win as they bid to catch Atletico Madrid and reclaim the Spanish title after missing out to Real Madrid last season.
