After four games without a win, Eibar have managed to win their last game in La Liga. They will be under a lot of pressure as they will host Barcelona at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium in the 19th round of the Spanish La Liga.
The hosts have been struggling with consistency in the league in their last few games. Eibar have gone four games without a win before they managed to pull a 3-2 win over Sporting Gijon away from home in their last La Liga fixture in a very entertaining game of football. The team have collected 5 points from a possible 15 in their last five league matches.
Eibar are currently sitting in the 9th place in the league table with 26 points from 7 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses. They have scored 25 goals and conceded 24 since the start of the season.
Mauro Dos Santos is expected to be preferred to Alejandro Galvez at the heart of their defence. Antonio Luna should start at left-back in place of Ruben Pena, with Sergi Enrich and Pedro Leon returning to the side.
The visitors are in a much better form at the moment compared to the hosts. Barcelona are unbeaten in their last five league games, however this is not enough for the Blaugrana to get into the top two teams in the table. Barca will need not to drop any points in the upcoming few weeks to stay in the title race with Real Madrid and Sevilla. The team have collected 11 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game was against UD Las Palmas at home where they won 5-0.
Barcelona are currently sitting in the 3rd place in the league table with 38 points from 11 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses. They have scored 47 goals and conceded 17 since the start of the campaign.
Javier Mascherano is suspended for the away side, which will see Samuel Umtiti partner Gerard Pique at centre-back. Andres Iniesta went off with an injury in midweek, which should see Andre Gomes take his starting place for the weekend.
