Barcelona will be playing their 2nd only match without Messi being a part of the club in the last 17 years. All eyes are on the Spanish Giants as they continue life without the attacking maestro. It can be argued that they still have a great number of talented players in their attacking front which is led by Frenchman Antoine Griezmann. Athletic Club will look to use their home advantage against a Barcelona team which can certainly be exploited if they get their tactics on point.
