Barcelona vs Eibar La Liga Predictions Preview
Spain La Liga | Camp Nou | 22nd February 2020 16:00
Barcelona are heavy favorites to deliver a crushing win against the relegation-threatened Eibar on a saturday afternoon la liga clash. Real Madrid had dropped two points the last match-day, and now, Barca have to make up a surplus of just two points to get to the top of the table.
Barcelona had played hosts to the third-placed Getafe in their latest fixture, and managed to secure an inspiring 2-1 win against the tough customer. The win indicated that the Blaugrana are still considering the league title as a priority, despite winning it eight times in the past eleven years. Under Quique Setien, the team has been playing pretty impressive football lately. But they still do have a long way to go. This weekend, with the CL knockouts around the corner, Barca could go for a confidence-boosting win over Eibar.
Eibar were defeated 2-1 on the road by Alaves, and it was their fourth winless fixture in a row. Even in this late stage of the season, the team has failed to build any kind of momentum, and this has justified their stay in the bottom tier of the table. Moreover, with two of the four teams below Eibar in the table taking on each other, the team is in serious trouble of going further down in standings.
Barcelona are the two-time defending champions, and they are at the Camp Nou, which has been their fortress for the past many years. In addition, not only are Barca in hunt for the title, but they are one of the best teams in the world as well. On the other hand, Eibar are fighting off relegation, and to pile on, they are on the road this Saturday. They are also on a four-match winless run in overall games, and this season, they could secure a total of three wins on the road. One of these wins had come against Leganes, a relegation-contender, and the other two had come in the Copa del Rey, against teams from the lower divison. On the contrary, Barca have won every one of their home game this season, except for their clash against Real Madrid, and the CL match against Slavia Prague. Moreover, Barcelona hold a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent, and at this venue, they hold an even more impressive 100% winning record. Considering all these findings, it’s easily deduced that Barcelona are on course to deliver a huge win this Saturday.
