Eibar vs Barcelona – La Liga: The La Liga’s leaders have 2 consecutive draws on the
competition and the 7-points advantage they have over Atlético de Madrid
Needs to be maintained as a borderline in order for them to stay relaxed at the top of the table.
Giving the Colchoneros some room for recovery, at a time of the season where there are some decisive Champions League matches, would be a slip-up that could end up being fatal for Ernesto Valverde.
However, the schedule offers a trip to Eibar, in what can’t be expected to be an easy task for them.
On a surprising fashion, Eibar is the best of the 4 teams from the Basque Country that are developing in La Liga.
Overtaking the historical Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad, they are continuing to show how it is possible to do well as a “small fish” on a very demanding competition.
Making the right, calculated, choices, offering an attractive playing style and presenting players that can make the difference.
Right now, the possibility of seeing Eibar in the Europa League next season is even natural, due to the way the team has been “leading” the secondary pack of La Liga.
The team is coming off 2 clear victories, with a rout against Sevilla and another 3 points conquered on the trip to Leganés, having on their mind the desire to avenge a loss suffered, by the minimum margin, when they hosted Atlético de Madrid (in what was the team’s only loss in the last 2 months and a half).
Eibar vs Barcelona – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Barcelona will have the Champions League on their mind, with the encounter against Chelsea taking place already next Tuesday, but they will have to show their qualities on a smaller ground, putting their best players’ abilities to the test.
Last season, the Catalans have won here by 4 unanswered goals. Repeating that feat seems, at the moment, unlikely. But Barcelona winning should be the most probable outcome.
