This is supposed to be an easy match if we compare the current position of these two teams in the point table. Now, Barcelona lead the table, and their opponent Athletic Club are at the 14th position. Yes, the visitors are not having a good season because of poor start. In fact, they are only four points away from the dangerous relegation zone. So, the visitors will be trying their best to stop Barca at the Camp Nou. But, it will be difficult to do. Even history favours the Spanish Giant. Amazingly, Athletic Club were unable to take even one point in the last 8 years from the Camp Nou!
But, Tito Vilanova says,
“They still play a very intense game”
Like all other matches, he is very cautious.
All eyes will be on Messi–one of the nominees of FIFA Ballon d’Or 2012. This 1.69 m Argentine wizard will play his 350th match wearing Barcelona Jersey. Messi is on 82, he needs 4 goals to beat Gerd Muller. Visca Barca!
