Following a slow start to the season for Barcelona, things are starting to look up for the Blaugrana as they continue to pick up the pace little by little. They struggled to rack up the points earlier in the season losing to a couple of La Liga minnows, much to the dismay of fans.

Kick-off:
Venue: Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar)

Ernesto Valverde will be forgiven for failing to grab the season by the scruff of the neck earlier in the season, given that they were facing some major injury crisis. With many of the players improving their fitness levels, results at Camp Nou have also taken a turn for the better.

The Catalan giants will be on the road to Ipurua on Saturday afternoon to lock horns with Eibar, hoping to leapfrog leaders Real Madrid to the summit of the standings.

Eibar v Barcelona Team News

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde honestly cannot afford any more criticism in his direction and will stop at nothing to snatch all three points against Eibar. Last time out against Sevilla, Barcelona were totally rampant as they annihilated Los Palanganas on home turf.

The result was sealed even before the end of the first 45 minutes, such was the dominance of Ernesto Valverde’s men on the night. As the referee called time for the end of the first period, Barcelona were soaring high, already three goals up and hungry for more.

Barcelona maestro Lionel Messi made sure of the points in the second half, finding the back of the net to seal all three points. The goal got the Barcelona fans on cloud-9 as they saw their talisman continue his goal-scoring exploits this season.

On the other hand, Eibar could not fashion out a win against fellow strugglers Real Betis, the latter holding them to a drab 1-1 draw. Though, Jose Mendilibar’s charges got the head-start, they were only able to hold off their opponents from grabbing the equalizer for over one-third of the tie.

Real Madrid are high-flying in the league this season, setting the pace with an unbeaten run worth admiring. They are yet to taste defeat this season, sitting atop the division on 18 points.

On paper, Barcelona should be considered clear favorites for this match, with seven points and eleven places separating both teams. However, with home advantage on their side, Eibar will be hoping to make the best of it. They surely cannot be totally ruled out of this encounter.

Barcelona have totally dominated Eibar over the years when it comes to head-to-head encounters, having won every single tie against the same opponent since 2014, disregarding a single draw this year. Also, in all of those encounters, they have managed nothing less than two goals. Impressively, they have kept clean sheets in six of those ten clashes, and in four of the last five at this venue.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Eibar: Rober Correa, Iván Ramis, Gonzalo Escalante.

Barcelona: Gerard Piqué, Ousmane Dembélé, Ronald Araújo, Samuel Umtiti.
