Date: Sunday, 22nd January 2017
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua, Eibar.
Eibar have left everybody surprised by their antics this season. An incredible job Mendilibar is doing at the club as his side are sitting comfortably in 9th position and on the verge of smoothly cementing their position in La Liga. An incredible achievement.
Barcelona like Atletico Madrid would have been celebrating along with Sevilla because of the victory over Real Madrid, the title race can now be considered a ‘four horse race’ once again. This season in La Liga is shaping up very nicely.
Barcelona will be too strong for Eibar in this one, but don’t completely rule out Eibar causing an upset. We’ve seen too many of those in the League this season.
Barcelona (4-3-3): Bravo; Alves, Pique, Mascherano, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Messi, Suarez, Arda
Eibar (4-2-3-1): Riesgo; Capa, Dos Santos, Pantic, Junca; Escalante, Garcia; Inui, Adrian, Berjon; Baston
Eibar: Ramis (out), Arbilla (out), Kike (out)
Barcelona: Rafinha (out)
