Barcelona defeat against Athletic Bilbao: Aritz Aduriz stunner goal makes Barcelona lose 1-0 in the 88th minute of the game.

Barcelona faced Athletic Bilbao in the first game of La Liga as the stunning strike by Aritz Aduriz made Barcelona lose the game in the dying minutes of the game.

The Catalan giants had a rough game tonight, as their main striker Luis Suarez had to leave the game in the 37th minute of the game, after picking up a calf injury.

The game remained on a deadlock, but Athletic Bilbao knocked Barcelona in the 88th minute of the game and gave Barcelona no chance to make a comeback in the match.

With a rough start in the league, the Catalan giants will have to be prepared for the upcoming matches, as the Blaugranas will be without Lionel Messi and Suarez in the next match.

The 38-year-old Aduriz came onto the pitch in the 88th minute of the game, and made instant impact to gain three points in the first match of the league.

The Spanish striker moved into a great position inside the box, before drilling the ball into the far corner. It was indeed a special moment for the veteran striker, who will retire at the end of the season.

On the other hand, Barcelona were denied several chances and the Catalan giants were unlucky to score the game and now lie with a defeat in the league, giving them the most unpleasant start of the league campaign.
