It could be the perfect end to a difficult week; provided Barcelona win tonight at San Mames against Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid lose against city rivals Atletico Madrid, the Blaugrana could secure their 22nd La Liga title, just a few days after suffering a heavy defeat against Bayern Munich. Of course, that would require Atletico winning their first derby match of the millennium, and snapping a nine-match losing streak against Los Blancos, but with Cristiano Ronaldo missing out through injury, Cules will perhaps feel a little more confident of Atleti's chances. Just like Barcelona, Atletico have not conceded a single goal in their last three La Liga matches, while Falcao appears to have found his scoring touch once again...could Atleti move level on points with Real Madrid tonight, gifting the Blaugrana the title in the process?
Maybe they will, maybe they won't, but first Barcelona will have to fulfil their side of the bargain, and defeat Athletic Bilbao at San Mames. Over the years, Barcelona have played 99 matches at the historic stadium, winning just 28 of those fixtures and losing 49 matches - and if Iker Muniain is to be believed, Athletic will be going all-out to make that 50 with a win tonight. However, having won just one of their last five fixtures, Bilbao are still heavy underdogs to secure a result tonight. Even without Sergio Busquets and possibly even Lionel Messi, Barcelona are expected to be too strong for their Basque counterparts. But what do you think?
