The FC Barcelona will visit to the Athletic of Madrid in Wanda Metropolitan in the research of three importantísimos points, of face to the fight by the championship. It will be a clash complicated by the good moment that live the colchoneros, that up to now do not know the defeat in the competition.

Although the results and statistics do not know of emotions or feelings, and that it is true that when it films the balloon all the books of history leave to be important, the Barça arrives to Wanda Metropolitan with an important series without losing in front of the Madrilenian. It is necessary to trace back until the month of February of 2010, with Pep Guardiola in the bench blaugrana, to remember the last defeat in front of the Atleti in the national competition. In the day 22, in Vicente Calderón, the Barça of Pep lost his first and only party of the championship to hands of the rojiblancos, directed in this moment by Quique Sánchez Flores.

Since, they have happened ten years and the Barcelona has not fallen in front of the Athletic in LaLiga. In 20 parties, register fourteen victories and six ties.

The advantage for the colchoneros, in theory, is that they arrive without knowing the defeat in this season and with win to avenge of the 2-2 of the previous course in the Camp Nou. The negative, is that they will receive to the Barça without Luis Suárez.
