Luis Suarez got substituted in the first half due to an injury and because of the lack of Messi in the squad, it was anyways going to be a little difficult for Barcelona. The 107 million euros signing, Antoinne Griezmann found it difficult to break the deadlock because of the limited attacking options. This was Athletic Bilbao’s first win over Barcelona in the last 6 years. With his goal yesterday, Artiz Aduriz became the second player in La Liga to score in consecutive 15 seasons in La Liga. The Current Barcelona manager, Valverde spent a good amount of time with the Spanish forward and knew where the ball was heading when it came in the vicinity of the towering defender.

Athletic coach, Gaizka Gatitano said that Aritz Aduriz is a competitive animal. Valverde’s side is chasing a third La Liga title and with the new reinforcements like Frenkie De Jong who was bought from Ajax for 65 million euros, there is still a long way to go and the team needs to adapt to situations like these. In a situation like this, the French Winger, Ousmane Dembele should showcase his talent and should be given the opportunity to create space.

Questions also arise with the start of Carlos Arena(who lasted only 45 minutes before being substituted) and Sergi Roberto in place of the more experienced, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic. Losing was a harsh result for Barcelona who did a decent job holding back Bilbao for large amounts of the game but they were far from dominance as we have come to see and accept.
