Barcelona vs. Eibar Predictions and Preview

Barcelona have lost top spot in La Liga with just five victories in their last nine, leaving them a point points off leaders Real Madrid.

However, three successive league wins – over Levante, Real Betis and Getafe – have eased the early pressure on new boss Quique Setien.

Eibar sit three points and two places above the relegation zone, but do have a game in hand courtesy of their clash with Real Sociedad being called off last week.

Unsurprisingly due to their stature, the hosts are favourites for this encounter at odds of 1/5 with an Eibar victory priced at 12/1 and the draw available at 6/1 with Bet Victor.

There have been 86 goals over Barcelona’s 24 league games – almost four per game – while 54 goals have flown in during Eibar games this term. Over 4.5 goals is priced at 23/10 with over 5.5 at a tempting 5/1 with bet victor.

A ‘double chance’ on Eibar to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 10/3 with William Hill while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 1/50.

If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 8/13.

One to watch for Barcelona: Arturo Vidal has already notched up six goals in La Liga this season – against Real Betis, Sevilla, Real Valladolid, Leganes, Alaves and Espanyol – in just six starts and is at a tempting 27/10 to find the net here with 888 Sport.

One to watch for Eibar: Fabian Orellana has scored in each of the past two games and has a total of six La Liga goals this campaign – the highest tally for any player at the Basque club this season and is at 6/1 to score in this game.

Long shot: Barcelona have 10 clean sheets already this season while Eibar have four clean sheets in their last seven. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 22/1.
