Barcelona play Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup first leg on Friday night following their UEFA Super Cup victory and we have free football predictions for the match.
Athletic Bilbao won the Copa Del Rey last season but face a tough task against Barcelona this week in the Spanish Super Cup, the first leg is in Bilbao and it is imperative for the hosts they take a lead into the second leg. Easier said than done!
Barcelona were involved in a thrilling Super Cup against Sevilla this week where they needed extra-time to win following a 4-4 draw in normal time. That doesn’t tell half the story though with Barcelona cruising into a 4-1 lead before being pegged back in the last half an hour, their defence will have to be a lot better in the season proper and they can start planning for that with this match against Bilbao.
First Goalscorer Betting Tip:
Messi scored two sublime free kicks against Sevilla but once again I prefer to stick with Luis Suarez for my first goalscorer betting tip. The Uruguayan also got a goal in midweek and playing through the middle gives him endless chances to get a goal.
My first football prediction for Athletic Bilbao v Barcelona is Luis Suarez to score first, the best odds are 7/2 with Ladbrokes and if he (or any of your first scorer bets this season) scores in the first 25 minutes you will get double the odds.
Score and Win Betting Tip:
Given the scoreline on Tuesday night, Blibao will fancy their chances of at least getting on the scoresheet. Barcelona’s defence was all over the place against Sevilla and they were lucky to only concede four on the night. I fully expect Barcelona to win the match but don’t be surprised to see Athletic Bilbao get a goal or more.
My second Athletic Bilbao v Barcelona prediction is for Barcelona to win and both teams to score, the best odds are 2/1 at Bet365.
Luis Suarez to score first – 7/2 with Ladbrokes (7/1 if he scores in first 25 minutes).
Barcelona to win and both teams to score – 2/1 with Bet365.
