Athletic Bilbao-Barcelona, the probable formations

The Sunday postponement of the 25th day of La Liga will feature the challenge between Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona, at the San Mames stadium, with kickoff at 9 p.m. The Basques, coming off a draw and two defeats, are looking for redemption to get closer to the Europe zone. The Blaugrana want to win to maintain the 9-point gap from Real Madrid, whom they will face in the next round.

Valverde must do without Unai Simon due to injury and Sancet due to disqualification. Inaki Williams will be in attack, supported by Munian, Berenguer and Nico Williams. Xavi must do without Araujo due to disqualification but recovers Gavi and Lewandowski who form the offensive trident along with Raphinha.

Likely lineups.

ATHLETIC BILBAO (4-2-3-1): Agirrezabala; De Marcos, Vivian, I. Martinez, Lekue; Zarraga, Vesga; N. Williams, Muniain, Berenguer; I. Williams. All. Valverde

BARCELONA (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Roberto, Kounde, Christensen, Balde; F. de Jong, Busquets, Kessie; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Gavi. All. Xavi
