Eibar vs Barcelona Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Eibar come on the back of a 1-0 win over Leganes in the recent La Liga match. After being inseparable for almost the entire game, the decisive point came when Dimitris Siovas received his second yellow card in the 84th minute. Eibar’s push for a victory was rewarded when Ivan Ramis converted from a corner in the fourth minute of injury time. Barcelona dropped points for a second consecutive league match after a goalless draw at Getafe at home. Angel Rodriguez and Shibasaki had chances to give Getafe a shock lead over Barcelona, who did not create a large number of opportunities to trouble goalkeeper Guaita.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Eibar are hoping to capitalise on Barcelona’s recent troubles, while the Catalan club also have a huge Champions League match against Chelsea coming up in the midweek. Eibar have been able to register a tremendous run of form in the last 10 La Liga matches. Even after losing three consecutive home matches without scoring a goal, I would back Eibar to get something out of this game.

The last six meetings between Barcelona and Eibar have witnessed the latter scoring only four goals, with none of them coming at the Ipurua. However, Eibar have displayed decent from going forward in recent weeks. The team were able to score five goals in the latest game at the Ipurua, while Barcelona have only managed two clean sheets in the last five away league matches. This game is likely to see both teams scoring at least once.

Draw – 7/2

Both teams to score – 3/4

Eibar saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 8 games played against Barcelona

Barcelona scored over 2.5 goals in 5 out of their last 10 games played

Eibar Preview

Eibar have been able to go through a run of four games without defeat, as the club are showing that the recent push for a Europa League place is no flash in the pan. Eibar have lost only once in the last 12 La Liga matches. This incredible run coupled with other teams dropping points mean that Eibar are now just one point behind Sevilla in the sixth place. Even Villarreal are only two points ahead of Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team. Eibar may have come up with only eight goals in the last five games, but they have been saved by a defence that has conceded just four goals in this period. Charles is the top scorer at Eibar with six goals.

Eibar Team News

Sergi Enrich (knee), Fran Rico (knee), Paulo Oliveira (hamstring), and Vukasin Jovanovic (knee) are the players unavailable for selection.

Barcelona Preview

Just when it seemed that Barcelona were running away with the title, the team has had a few hiccups in the La Liga 2017-18 campaign. Back-to-back draws mean that Barcelona’s lead over Atletico Madrid has been cut down to seven points. While it does not change the likelihood of the next La Liga title’s destination, it certainly induces a few butterflies within the Catalan club. Philippe Coutinho is yet to fire on all cylinders since the huge £140 million move to the Camp Nou. Ernesto Valverde is yet to suffer a defeat in the league as a Barcelona manager. Lionel Messi tops the scoring charts at the club and the league with 20 goals.

Barcelona Team News

Thomas Vermaelen (hamstring), Sergi Samper (ankle), and Ousmane Dembele (gastrointestinal discomfort) are the players unavailable for Ernesto Valverde.
