Eibar vs Barcelona Preview

 

Eibar vs Barcelona

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Municipal de Ipurúa

Date: 17th February 2018

Kick-off time – 15:15 GMT

Eibar face a difficult day at home when they welcome Barcelona in this game.

The Catalans have dropped points in their last two league travels and Eibar should fancy their chance of getting a point here also.

Eibar have been transformed from relegation candidates into Europa League spot challengers and that’s one of the reasons they have remained La Liga campaigners for the past few seasons.

They have 17 points from their last 8 games – only Barcelona and Atletico Madrid can better that figure.

Barcelona’s point lead at the top of the table has been cut to just 12 points and they now have Atletico breathing down their neck.

Ernesto Valverde would have rested some of his key players for this game as they play Chelsea next, but Eibar’s form makes it too dangerous to attempt so full strength line-up is expected.

Barce have a 100% winning record against Eibar and Eibar do not look like a team that could inflict the first defeat of the season on the Catalans.

Barce have scored 2.61 goals per game this season.

Bookmakers make Barcelona strong favourites to come out on top in this tie.
