Barcelona vs. Athletic Club LIVE: they face each other this Sunday, March 12 at the San Mamés stadium, in Bilbao (Spain). The match corresponds to the 25th date of La Liga and will be played from 3:00 p.m. (Peruvian time). The broadcast can be followed by DirecTV (D Sports) in South America.
In Barcelona, everything indicates that Robert Lewandowski will return, and with him his 15 goals in this League. It a great hope for a Barça that yes, beat Valencia by the minimum at Camp Nou, but came from losing in Almeria. Even so, the ‘rulers’ are leaders with 6 points margin over Real Madrid.
In San Mamés, coach Xavi Hernández will not be able to count on a more than reliable lock at the back as is the Uruguayan center Ronald Araújo, sanctioned after his expulsion against Valencia in the last day’s win at the Spotify Camp Nou.
However, the return of Robert Lewandowski, the great scorer of this Barcelona, would be the potion that Xavi would prepare to find the goal again. At the moment, the Polish striker trained normally on Friday after doing part of the group work this week, leaving behind the overload in the femoral biceps of the left leg that he suffered in the unexpected defeat against Almeria.

For their part, the ‘lions’ have four games without winning between La Liga and the Copa del Rey and in three of those duels they were left without scoring.
Thus, in a duel that is usually back and forth in ‘The Cathedral’, both teams will try to find that easy and light goal that is resisting. If the defenses continue at a good level, as both sides are achieving, it will be key to have offensive success and be as precise as it did not go in the recent past to opt for victory.
The Bilbao will not be able to count on Oihan Sancet, sent off on the previous day against Rayo Vallecano, who is their top scorer in La Liga with 8 goals. And having a goal, at the feet of anyone, will be key to winning and being able to get back on the European train, which is now 4 points.
