Live football Bilbao vs Barca (3h00 on August 22, round 2 of La Liga 2021/22): Bilbao’s San Mames Stadium is a trap door for most of the big teams in Spain, except for Barcelona. The Catalunya giants often triumph when marching to this arena. Most likely, tonight Barca will once again successfully capture San Mames.
Bilbao’s San Mames Stadium is considered by experts as one of the “fortresses” difficult to overcome in Spain and Europe. Even in a period of decline and instability, the Basque team still somewhat retains the sacredness of this holy place. Before the encounter with Barca in the second round of La Liga 2021/22, 13 meetings with the nearest opponents in all competitions, Bilbao only lost 1 when clashing with the big man Real Madrid and also with a minimum score of 0- first.

But Barca has never been tired of marching to the Basque country. Specifically, Blaugrana is unbeaten in the last 5 confrontations with host Bilbao in all competitions (won 4). Particularly in La Liga, Barca won 5 and lost only 1 after the last 7 matches played at San Mames.
In the opening round of La Liga 2021/22, Barca more or less showed that they can live well without Lionel Messi when they overcame Bilbao’s rival club in the Basque Country, Sociedad with a result of 4-2. It was a match Barca lacked some other attacking stars because of injury, but still played impressively. The star in that victory was Martin Braithwaite with a brace of goals, equaling the tally of all 29 La Liga appearances last season.
The fact that a striker only plays a reserve role and is often criticized for not being able to play the role of a hero for Barca has proved that the faces present at Camp Nou are capable of playing better to fill the huge gap. left by Messi.
The match against Bilbao, Barca still cannot have the service of 4 attacking stars, Ansu Fati, Philippe Coutinho, Sergio Aguero and Ousmane Dembele due to injury. In addition, in defense, Barca has not had the service of goalkeeper Ter Stegen, center-back Oscar Mingueza and possibly Gerard Pique for the same reason. However, coach Ronald Koeman still has enough force to arrange a balanced and strong squad. And like I said, now every Barca player is aware of the task after Messi’s departure. They will play harder, through which anyone can become a hero.
