ATH vs BAR Dream11 Prediction: In the season opener of La Liga, Champions Barcelona will take on Athletic Bilbao in an away game. Bilbao ended their last season in the middle of the table and this season they would be hoping to better their chances for at least a top 5 finish. Barcelona will be playing their opening game without Lionel Messi who is injured; this will be a perfect opportunity to try out different combinations at the start of a very long season.
Barcelona had a near-perfect pre-season, losing just one game. Bilbao too had a good pre-season, faring well against different opposition in different conditions, and might offer a good test for the visitors.
