      « Reply #1 on: January 25 2016, 15:18 »

      Analysis of Barcelona

      Barcelona is currently in the 1st position of La Liga, after 15 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses. They are a very powerful team, both in home and away matches.

      Barça’s offensive trident, Luis Suárez, Neymar and Lionel Messi, is in great shape, with 45 goals scored this season. They are known for their creativity  and efficiency, particularly at Camp Nou.

      Barcelona is the team with the most Copas Del Rey won, a total of 27. In the last edition they have beaten Athletic de Bilbao in the final with a 3-1win.

      The head to head history favours Barcelona. In 106 matches, they register 70 wins, 13 draws and 20 losses. In cup matches at this stadium Barça won 13, tied 2 and lost 2.

      Analysis of Athletic Club

      The away team is currently in the 8th position of the league, after 9 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses. Unlike the away team, Athletic is usually much stronger at home. Sure enough, in the last 5 away matches they register 2 wins and 3 losses, while in the last 5 at home they register 3 wins and 2 draws.

      Another important data is that the away team counts on the 6th best European scorer, with, Aduriz, who has scored 23 goals this season, 13 of which for the Premier League. However, they have a few weaknesses and have been unable to fight for the first positions.

      This is a head to head between the 2 teams with the most trophies won in this cup: Barça has won 27 and Athletic 23. Therefore, Barcelona will fight to increase this lead and Athletic to close the gap.

      In this 1st leg match, at Bilbao’s, Barça won 1-2, with goals by Munir (18’) and Neymar (24’) for Barcelona and Aduriz (89’) for Bilbao. Therefore, the task of the away team isn’t easy, since they’ll to beat Barça at Camp Nou to qualify, but Messi’s team hasn’t lost at home yet.

      Betting suggestion:

      Given the records of both teams in this competition, we expect a balanced match with goal opportunities for both teams, most of them for Barcelona, since they usually dominate their opponents in home matches. Therefore, there is a tendency for goals in this match, which is why we suggest the Over 2,5 Goals market.
