FC Barcelona – Eibar (La Liga)

After a tough victory last time out against Getafe, FC Barcelona will now be playing against Eibar this Tuesday, at Camp Nou, for the 5th round of the La Liga. FC Barcelona are enjoying a perfect start of the season, already sitting on the top of the league table, having won all the challenges that have been imposed on them so far. Eibar, on their turn, managed to get their second victory of the season in last round, putting an end to a serie of two consecutive defeats by beating Leganés.

FC Barcelona are in 1st place in the league table with 12 points, result of 4 wins, with 11 goals scored and only 1 goal conceded. Barcelona come here after an hard-fought victory at Getafe’s home ground, a difficult match where the Catalans where behind the scoresheet by 1-0, but managed to overturn the result with goals of Denis Suárez and Paulinho. Since the start of La Liga that Barcelona are in great form and only knows the taste of victory, also reflecting this great moment in the Champions League by taking revenge of Juventus, beating them at Camp Nou by 3-0, in the first round of Group D. The team seems to be doing very well under the new coach Ernesto Valverde and have already scored 11 goals in only 4 matches, conceding just 1 in the process, with this single goal conceded being in the last round.

The Blaugranas continue to present some difficulties in aerial duels and in stopping opponents from creating chances, but in general they have been strong and organized at the back. This continues to be a very talented and versatile team when attacking is concerned, being very strong in shooting from direct free kicks, finishing scoring chances, creating long shot opportunities and in creating chances through individual skill. Messi continues to be the top scorer in the Spanish league, with 5 goals scored. In their only two home matches this season, Barcelona have scored 8 goals without conceding any in the process.

In his last 5 official games, Barcelona has a record of 5 wins. This sequence of results started with a 2-0 win against Real Betis. This result was followed by a 0-2 win over Alavés, a 5-0 win over Espanyol, a 3-0 win against Juventus, in the Champions League, and in their last round, a 1-2 win against Getafe. Rafinha and Dembélé are both out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Stegen – Semedo, Piqué, Umtiti and Alba – Rakitic, Busquets and Iniesta – Messi, Suárez and Deulofeu.

laligaEibar, on their turn, are in 10th place in the league table with 6 points, result of 2 wins and 2 losses, with 2 goals scored and 4 goals conceded. The Basque club had a positive start of the season with a victory in the first round, at Málaga’s ground, but fell into two consecutive defeats after that, managing to recover this past Friday, wining at home against Leganés, by 1-0.

The Armeros are showing particular difficulties in keeping possession of the ball and in finishing scoring chances, but also show some good defensive characteristics, being strong in stealing the ball from the opposition, in defending set pieces and in aerial duels. This team has little offensive quality, but play with width and attack mostly down the right side, they like playing long balls and attempt crosses often to the heart of the penalty box. Traveling to Camp Nou is normally very hard for the Basque team, having lost all their 3 trips to Camp Nou and conceded 10 goals in those only 3 matches.

In their only 4 official games, Eibar has a record of 2 wins and 2 losses. This sequence of results began with a 0-1 win against Málaga. This result was followed by 0-1 defeat against Athletic Bilbao, a 3-0 defeat against Sevilla, and in their last round, a 1-0 win over Leganés. Yoel Rodríguez, Fran Rico, Pedro Leon and Ivan Alejo are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Dmitrovic – Capa, Oliveira, Gálvez and Ángel – Escalante, García, Peña and Inui – Charles and García.

Barcelona has won all of their previous direct clashes until now.

Barcelona are motivated with their recent results and have more than enough quality to get the 3 points here. This should be on more match dominated by the Catalans who should have no difficulty in finding the back of the net more than once.
