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.
