Barca breeze past Bilbao


“Barcelona showed they have plenty in reserve ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Arsenal as they beat Athletic Bilbao 4-1 with a team featuring several fringe players at the Nou Camp.” (ESPN)

FC Barcelona – 4, Athletic Bilbao – 1
“FC Barcelona moved back to the top of La Liga witha 4-1 win against Athletic Bilbao and will remain there for atleast 24 hours. Bojan who started in place of Ibrahimovic, who got injured in warm-up scored twice and Messi and Jeffren scored one each for Barca. Susaeta scored the consolation goal for Athletic Bilbao. This victory is more sweet considering that many of the regular starters were rested for this encounter and still Barca was able to dominate the game. I have criticised Guardiola’s strange tactics many times and this match also I was clueless when I saw Chygrynskiy and Pique in the centre of defense.” (All About FC Barcelona)
