Preview: Athletic Bilbao vs. Barcelona

Sports Mole previews the match between Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona in La Liga.

Barcelona will be hoping that they can continue their remarkable form in La Liga when they travel to San Mames Barria on Sunday evening.

The Catalan giants have dropped just two points in 14 league fixtures during this campaign, but they did fall to defeat to Ajax in the Champions League in midweek.

Manager Gerardo Martino will be without as many as six players for their trip to Bilbao, including Lionel Messi, Dani Alves and Victor Valdes.

Athletic Bilbao have consolidated sixth position in the league table over the past two matches with victories over Levante and Malaga respectively.

Ernesto Valverde will be without striker Aduriz through suspension.
