There might not be bigger games played at the Estadio de San Mames when Athletic Club Bilbao vs FC Barcelona is produced on the fixture schedule. Both teams have huge histories when it comes down to playing in La Liga and both like to put on a competitive display for their fans, therefore making this a tie with all the promise that one would expect to see when watching it for the first time.
Athletic Club Bilbao, who are nicknamed Los Leones (the Lions), might not be able to match-up to the recognition that Barcelona are able to carry around the world, however they have certainly carved out a reputation for themselves in the country as a tough opponent and one that can not be taken for granted. The Basque outfit are the most successful from the region, with no fewer than eight league titles to their name.
Of course, FC Barcelona are a side that do not need an introduction as they are one of the most popular sides to have ever been formed in world football. With an abundance of superstars having graced their famous blue-and-red colours, the Blaugrana have gone on to amass no fewer than 76 domestic titles, including a minimum of 26 La Liga crowns, as well as multiple trophies from continental successes.
Therefore, the 53,289-seater Estadio de San Mames becomes a truly lively venue when the two sides meet at the stadium, with both sets of fans expecting to see some of the very best football that the league can provide. With the stadium being as new as 2013, it also helps to provide a unique experience for fans as it has the ability to take the atmosphere to incredible volumes.
Previous meetings of Athletic Club Bilbao versus FC Barcelona have produced some classic moments for the hosts, with Los Leones having been able to record results such as 1-0, 4-0 and 0-0 over the years. However, Blaugrana do appear to get the best of their Basque opponents, as they have managed to acquire 0-2, 0-1 and 2-5 victories in recent years.
Goals certainly appear to be the order of the day when these two sides meet in the north of Spain and with the likes of Inaki Williams and Lionel Messi having both featured, perhaps it is not a surprise to see the net bulge as much as it has in previous meetings.
One thing that can be guaranteed, though, is that Athletic Club Bilbao vs FC Barcelona has all the ingredients to provide fans with a highly entertaining spectacle when played at the Estadio de San Mames.
