Eibar vs Barcelona Match Preview
Barcelona regained their consistency and sit just a point behind La Liga pace-setters Real Madrid as they travel to Eibar for their Matchday 9 clash on Saturday, looking to build on a four-match winning streak across competitions and challenge the top of the table after an unpredictable form early on.
Blaugrana have beaten Villarreal (2-1), Getafe (0-2), Inter Milan (2-1), and Sevilla (4-0) in four exciting games but they have still struggled for stability at the back. Without Pique, Umtiti, and Araujo in the ranks, this could be worrying once again as Ernesto Valverde looks to find a cure for such slip-ups.
Eibar will, on the other hand, look to capitalize and they come into the match after connecting a four-match unbeaten streak in La Liga of their own. They held Levante (0-0) and Betis (1-1) to draws and beat both Sevilla (3-2) and Celta Vigo (2-0) at this ground along the way – which will serve as a great confidence booster too.
Los Armeros have been tough to outgun at this ground and we feel Mendilibar should have no troubles setting up a tough challenge once again, despite seeing his men as heavy betting underdogs. They’ve held on to a thrilling 2-2 draw against Barcelona in May and will now hope for a similar display.
We do hope to see just that but we expect Barcelona to overcome the challenge this time around, as we now stick our necks out for the visitors to win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 9/5 with Coral – which seems like great value seeing their defensive line.
With that in mind, we expect goals and we’ll back such a claim with Over 2.5 Goals FT as well, which comes at 8/15 with bet365 and would be the fourth such occasion in six head-to-head clashes since May 2017.
