The best team in the world is back in action.
After a two-week holiday break for Barcelona, the Catalan giants return to play a very difficult match on the road. The Blaugrana travel to the Basque Country to face Athletic Bilbao in the first leg of the Copa del Rey Round of 16, and this will not be an easy challenge for the defending champions.
Every single match at the San Mamés is really tough for Barça, and Cup games are always special. These are two teams who really value winning the Copa del Rey for political reasons, and they will put on a show today, and also next week at Camp Nou.
Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar will play, so there's no reason not to watch this game. This should be big fun. Don't miss it.
