Eibar 0-4 FC Barcelona – Match Highlights
[ Spanish La Liga, Sunday, 06 March 2016 ]
- Munir El Haddadi tapped home from two yards after Suarez square ball:
- Lionel Messi scores Barcelona’s second just before the break.
- Lionel Messi scores his second and Barca’s third of the day from penalty:
- Suarez broke his mini drought after scoring Barca’s fourth:
Ronaldo’s four goals tally against Celta Vigo has take his season total to 39 goals, 27 of which came in La liga while Leo Messi has around 33 in total with just 19 in La Liga. He will be looking to add couple of goals to him name to keep up with prolific Ronaldo.
Team News & Lineups: Eibar will be without suspended Lillo Castellano which means Mauro dos Santos should lineup in the defense alongside Pontic, Ramis and Junca. Enrich to start upfront on his own while Baston, Edrian to take attacking roles behind him.
Barcelona will be without Neymar who is suspended for yellow card accumulation which means Munir El Haddadi might start upfront or Arda Turan to take Neymar’s position. Iniesta, Rakitic and Busquest should keep their place in starting lineup. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Sunday.
Head To Head & Predictions: These two has only meet three times in history and their last meeting was a 3-1 win for Barcelona at Camp Nou back in November 2015. Looking at the form of both teams I can’t see any team beating Barcelona from Spain let alone whole Europe. With Ronaldo scored 4 goals yesterday, Messi and Suarez will be eager to their already impressive goal tally.
