Relegated Eibar will put an end to their La Liga expedition on Saturday. The host had put up some fight in their recent fixtures in the campaign. Another such heroic win here will upset Barcelona who has already lost in the title race this season.
However, defeating the UCL berth confirmed team for the next season from the top part of the table is easier said than done for Los Armeros, even at home. They will return home after a 4-1 loss on the road against Valencia last time out in their schedule.
In the meantime, even a draw in the game will put Barcelona within the top three. It is likely to see Messi and Co. have their season end with a win based on their squad strength, especially against a relegated side. They will visit after a 1-2 loss at home against Celta Vigo in the last league clash.
Eibar vs Barcelona Prediction
Despite the results, most of the h2h meetings between these two sides have ended as a high scoring affair featuring over 2.5 goals in each. As mentioned earlier, their last ten h2h clashes have averaged 4.0 goals per game in the league. Thus, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be the best bet in the clash.
Eibar enjoys the ground advantage in the middle and also has confidence from yielding a point at Camp Nou in the reverse fixture this term. However, any team with Lionel Messi cannot be written away at any stage of the league.
Apart from that, the Catalans have never lost to the host in any h2h meetings since 2014. With such a good track record, Koeman’s men might be able to finish the campaign with a win this season. Thus, the away win in full-time will probably be the ideal choice for the punters to yield decent returns.
