Barcelona will look to keep pace with the La Liga frontrunners when they travel to Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday at 8:00 pm (UK time).
The Blaugrana currently sit fifth in the table, one and two points adrift of Villarreal and Real Sociedad respectively, though they have played fewer games than both.
Meanwhile, Bilbao is ninth but can cut the gap between themselves and Wednesday’s visitors to just four points with a win here.
Despite recovering from their Basque derby loss to Real Sociedad with a 1-0 win over Elche, Athletic Bilbao parted ways with manager Gaizka Garitano at the weekend, with Marcelino immediately taking his place.
The former Valencia boss’ task between now and the end of the season will be to push Athletic up into European contention, and a win here would go a long way toward that with just 17 games played so far.
Ronald Koeman, meanwhile, is also swimming in dangerous waters at the Nou Camp. Although Barcelona is now unbeaten in their last six La Liga matches, they’ve only managed more than two goals on one occasion during that time. They have endured disappointing draws at home to Valencia and Eibar.
As a result, Barca is fifth in the table, a massive 10 points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, who also have a game in hand over the Catalan giants.
