Barca full strength for Athletic

Barcelona will reportedly field a strong starting XI for Saturday’s trip out to Athletic Bilbao, including Lionel Messi in attack.

The Catalans are midway through their Champions League semi-final with Bayern Munich, but head into the weekend knowing that three points, followed by defeat for Real Madrid in the Madrid derby, would be enough to secure the League title.

Subsequently, Barca are seen as preparing to play a full-strength team at San Mames, including starting with Messi in attack, despite his indifferent return to fitness in the midweek thrashing in Germany.
