Basques are slowly entering the season
Athletic Bilbao was unable to make it to European competition last season, although he even won the Spanish Super Cup trophy. In the first round, the Basques were unable to defeat the newcomer Elche – 0: 0, the opponent even managed to score, but the goal was canceled after watching the video replay. Six players at once will miss this meeting due to damage. The Basques were not impressed in the first game, but we must take into account the fact that in their lair they are very dangerous.
Barça looks better than expected
The Catalans prove to everyone that there is life without Messi, there are many young talents in the team who have had a chance to prove themselves. The dependence on one player has disappeared, which should also benefit the players. In the first round, Barça beat Real Sociedad 4-2 at home in spectacular style. The hero of the meeting was Braithwaite, on his account a double and an assist. The club also has personnel losses, five players will not play due to injuries, including Fati and Ter Stegen.
