Ronald Koeman has chosen his 11 warriors that will go to battle at the San Mames to take on Athletic Club for La Liga gameweek 2, and unsurprisingly, there are no changes from the team that took on Real Sociedad.

Gerard Pique starts alongside Eric Garcia in the heart of the defence. The Spanish duo will be flanked by Sergino Dest from the right and Jordi Alba from the left. Meanwhile, Neto takes responsibility for the posts behind them.

Sergio Busquets will be responsible for holding the fort for the Blaugranas as the defensive midfielder and captain. He’ll have the very talented duo of Pedri and Frenkie de Jong on his left and right respectively to round off the midfield.

Man of the match from the first showing, Martin Braithwaite, will look to add to his tally of two goals and an assist, while his peers Antoine Griezmann and Memphis Depay will hope to open their scoring charts today.

Official XI: Neto; Dest, Eric, Pique, Alba; de Jong, Busquets, Pedri; Griezmann, Braithwaite, Depay
