Athletic Club ended their warm-up matches with a disappointing record with 1 loss to Racing Santander (1-2), 1 draw against AS Roma (2-2) and 1 short win over Mirandés (2-1). ) on August 8th. The Basque club, which barely succeeds in Barça since January 5, 2017 (date of his last victory in front of the Blaugranas), will have a hard time withstanding a Barcelona team that has strengthened well with the arrivals of Griezmann and De Jong in particular. Barça remain on brilliant victories in their last warm-up matches against Vissel Kobe (2-0), Arsenal (2-1) and Napoli twice (2-1 and 4-0). The partners of Lionel Messi are ready for this beginning of season which seems very largely within reach of the Blaugranas with the reception of the Betis Seville and a displacement in Osasuna following.
