Barcelona vs. Eibar Predictions and Preview
Barcelona have started to recover form after winning just three La Liga games in nine attempts by winning each of their last five.
Their 2-1 win at Getafe was their first goal conceded in five as they have reinforced their chances of winning a fourth La Liga title in five seasons.
However, Eibar are a dangerous opponent and one who are in a strange run of form – they have drawn each of their last five matches in all competitions.
If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 4/11.
One to watch for Barcelona: Lionel Messi has scored 16 goals from 16 La Liga games this season including five strikes in his last three outings. He is priced at 3/10 to add to his seven goals in four previous home games against Eibar.
One to watch for Eibar: Brazilian striker Charles is the main threat for the visitors with four goals in his last five games and a total of seven goals to his name this campaign. He is at 4/1 to score at any point here.
Long shot: Barcelona have four clean sheets from their last five while Eibar have drawn five games in a row in all competitions. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 66/1.
