Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona; Review

Despite a poor showing at the Sam Mames Barcelona were able to pick up a point against a highly motivated Athletic Bilbao. Despite some good scoring chances, most of them by the home side, the game ended scoreless and Barcelona restored their six point lead in La Liga, this time with Real Madrid their closest pursuer.
With a couple unavailable players in key places, Ernesto Valverde had to make some changes, moving Nelson Semedo from the right side to the left of the defense, with Sergi Roberto taking up the right side. Arturo Vidal took Arthurs? spot in midfield while Lionel Messi was deemed fit enough to start the tough away game, while Ousmane Dembele took a seat on the bench for the first time since picking up the ankle injury against Leganes.
The match started with both sides playing a high-tempo game, as Barcelona looked to control the ball amid high press from the home team. The first good look for either side didn?t come until the 11th when Vidal turned the ball over in midfield to send Yuri Berchiche sprinting past Roberto. The former PSG man fired from the left wing, but missed the far post by about a foot.
Against a highly organized Athletic Bilbao side Barcelona couldn?t really get going. The constant pressure on the ball-carrier caused all kinds of problems as the calming presence of Arthur was sorely missed in midfield. Athletic though seemingly always looked dangerous when in possession inside Barcelona?s third of the pitch. Markel Susaeta tried his luck from the edge of the area after finding a soft spot between Semedo and Clement Lenglet, but Marc-Andre ter Stegen made a brilliant panther-like save. While Barcelona continued to be largely anonymous in attack, where the right wing with Roberto failed to deliver anything, Athletic threatened again in the 23rd minute, this time through an acrobatic finish from Raul Garcia but ter Stegen was in perfect position to make the save. On numerous occasions the hosts proved to be dangerous on the counter-attack, while Barcelona?s possession play struggled. Turnovers often cost the Catalans and as a result Iago Herrerín didn?t have to face a single shot after the opening half hour, while the hosts fired six.
Messi didn?t quite look 100%, Philippe Coutinho and Arturo Vidal were largely ineffectual while Luis Suarez struggled to control the ball on a couple occasions. A combination off all those aspects, as well as a couple others, resulted in the fact that Barcelona didn?t take their first shot until the 36th minute when Herrerín saved Messi?s try.
However, that proved to be a rare bright spot for Barcelona in the first half as the hosts would create the next chance, in the 41st minute, with Garcia getting a chance after a poor clearance, but his shot whistled wide of ter Stegen?s near post. Athletic?s full-pitch press was relentless and Barcelona needed to make some adjustments during the halftime break in an effort to extend their La Liga lead.
After one of the worst halves in recen...
