Barcelona vs Eibar Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Barcelona survived a major scare against Getafe during the weekend, but the Catalan outfit recovered to get a 2-1 win. Gaku Shibasaki’s outstanding effort provided Getafe with a shock lead, but second-half goals from Denis Suarez and Paulinho secured a victory for Barcelona. Eibar were able to overcome back-to-back losses in the La Liga 2017-18 season to get a 1-0 win over Leganes. Centre back Alejandro Galvez proved the architect in the victory after creating and completing a move that led to a 53rd minute goal. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Barcelona conceded a first league goal of the season in the match against Eibar, but I see greater possibilities of Barcelona managing a clean sheet against Eibar. In four out of the recent six games between these two clubs, Barcelona have kept a clean sheet and have conceded just two goals in the remaining two matches. Eibar have been poor in front of goal at the start of the season, and I do not see them making a dent in Barcelona’s impressive defensive record. I would go with a Barcelona clean sheet.

I have seen Barcelona with more than 2.5 goals in five of their last six matches against Eibar. Ernesto Valverde’s team have averaged close to 3 goals per game in the four league matches this season. Even though Eibar’s defence has been pretty solid with more than 2.5 goals conceded just once in the league, I see value in going with Barcelona to score more than 2.5 goals.

Barcelona Preview

The impressive start to the season appeared to be in danger of ending with a surprise defeat against newly promoted Getafe before Barcelona recovered for getting a fourth straight win in the league. As a result, Ernesto Valverde has been able to preserve his excellent start to life at the Camp Nou since replacing Luis Enrique at the start of the season. Barcelona may struggle in the coming weeks, as big-money signing Ousmane Dembele is expected to miss the next few weeks of action with a hamstring injury. Lionel Messi is the top scorer at Barcelona by a significant margin after netting five goals.

Barcelona Team News

Ousmane Dembele (hamstring) and Arda Turan (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Barcelona.

Eibar Preview

The goal scoring troubles for Eibar are still very much pronounced, and the club needed the help of an unlikely goal scorer in the match against Leganes during the weekend. Eibar have been able to score only two goals this season, but a first home win of the season is a major positive element. Last season, the club were able to finish in the top half of the table largely due to a return of 10 wins from 19 home matches. In last season’s away matches, the club were able to get only five wins under their belt. The lack of goals is very much the issue for Eibar; Alejandro Galvez and Charles have one goal each.

Eibar Team News

Yoel Rodriguez (cruciate ligament), Pedro Leon (knee), Ivan Ramis (calf), Fran Rico (knee), Ivan Alejo (knee) are the players unavailable for Eibar.
