Barcelona are back in action tonight as they face Athletic Club Bilbao at the Camp Nou. Don't miss a kick by following our Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao live stream guide below.

Barça dropped into second place following a disappointing 0-0 draw against Sevilla on Friday with El Clasico rivals Real Madrid taking top spot for now. The Blaugrana will be wanting to get back to winning ways tonight against the visitors from Bilbao.

Athletic Club have taken five points from their first three games back after the unscheduled season break and currently sit in ninth place.

Reigning champions Barcelona will be determined to lift the La Liga trophy again this year and will be well aware that any slip-ups at this stage could cede the title to Real Madrid. Given Real's better head-to-head record, they currently sit in first place despite having the same points tally and a worse goal difference.

Quique Setien's side have been in good form since returning to action after the lockdown, beating Mallorca and Levante before the draw in Seville.

Gaizka Garitano's Athletic Club have also hit the ground running after the break with two draws and one victory so far in June including a 1-1 result against third-place Atletico Madrid.

Though Barcelona's loftier league position might suggest an easy win, Bilbao actually notched a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture at San Mames earlier in the season. The Basque team is actually unbeaten in their last three La Liga encounters with Barça.

This La Liga clash is bound to be entertaining regardless of the result. Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao no matter where you are in the world with our guide below.
