Ivan Rakitic lone goal save Barcelona

The Croatian midfielder powered home a header from an Arda Turan cross in the first half to giveLuis Enrique’s side the lead and ultimately three points in what was a difficult Liga fixture on the road.
Athletic Bilbao had their chances throughout, with Benat and Aritz Adurizcoming closest for the home side. However, Barcelona controlled the majority of the contest, even if their defence looked shaky at times.
The Catalans have now picked up six points from a possible six to start the defence of their Liga title, sitting at the top of the league standings alongside rivals Real Madridbefore the international break.
