The FC Barcelona has lived some months of stop, but this Friday premières in LaLiga 2019-20 confronting to the AthleticClub . After varied turn, friendly and presentations touches to put of full in the official season, that premières with a demanding visit to Saint Mamés. The pupilos of Ernesto Valverde arrive to the appointment with good feelings, but now touches to show that they are smart to struggle a year more by all the titles at stake.
And the true is that the championship of the regularity gives him well to the Barcelona, and also to the preparador extremeño. The one of Viandar of the Edge goes in search of his third consecutive trophy, and the culés want to aim the ninth in the last 12 editions. Already they go eight of the last eleven, but in the City Condal do not tire to win and know that it does lacking concentration, regularity and temper to be in the high of the classification in the Day 38.
For the moment, the first step on the way will give it without the leader of the changing room, Leo Messi that already it trains but that it will be drop by caution. The one of Rosario lesionó the sóleo of the right leg and has been working in his recovery since, with a process that already leaves positive feelings but in which anybody wants to put unnecessary hastes. The '10' will be key in the next months, so it can him expect a bit more.

In the visit to Saint Mamés will not be missing aces to be followed, beginning by a brilliant trident. The captain can be calm because his mates have gone back in full form, and the tuning that share Griezmann and Ousmane Dembélé has joined a veteran goleador like Luis Suárez. With the ones of Jong, Hammered, Ter Stegen and company, everything is smart so that this League give the starting signal.
The Athletic wants to surprise to the champion
In spite of that the Barça only has lost once in the last ten years in Saint Mamés, arrives warned to the appointment with the Athletic. Explaining only his results in LaLiga, tieed up five victories and three ties in addition to the trip mentioned, but to these heights of the campaign the strengths are equalised and are not odd the surprises, because the preparation plays sometimes any bad past.
The 'lions' keep on being a marked opponent by his pressure and intensity, that usually incomoda to the virtuoso game of touch barcelonista. There is crash of styles or no, what himself there will be is a battle of maximum level by the points, and it is necessary to remember in the past edition of the championship, both left his two duels in tables -1-1 in the Camp Nou and tie without goals in Saint Mamés-.
