Preview –

The home team, Bilbao who will be getting the home advantage in this match will play as the underdogs. They are a good team with rich history but in recent time, they have shrunk to the level of middle tier club while their opponent is one of the best of the world. Just recently, they lost the Copa Del Ray to Barcelona and they are once again facing off. They will have to play their best, get lucky and also hope Barcelona is unlucky to win this match. But that is almost too much to ask, so a draw should be their primary target. For that they will need to do good at defending and be sharp while attacking.

Barcelona is looking well enough to win this match. They just won another trophy to add to their collection and their form allowed them to get 4 trophies this year already. They are looking very good and back on form after some tough time International Champions Cup. They will be aiming for a win in this match and everyone knows that they have the capability to win it.

Prediction –

We predict that Barcelona will win this match by 4-2.
