Barcelona currently sit two points behind league leaders Real Madrid who do have a game in hand. Since Real Madrid are playing at home against Malaga on Saturday, Barcelona might find themselves 5 points behind Madrid by the time they take the field on Sunday night. Eibar currently sit 9th in La Liga table with 26 points and 5 home wins so far this season. Not much pressure on the players and that might help them cope with Barcelona’s possesion based football.

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.
