FC Barcelona vs SD Eibar Match Preview

0 39

FC Barcelona return to La Liga action tomorrow hoping to build on their recent run of good form and secure a win at the Camp Nou against SD Eibar. FC Barcelona will host Eibar in the last round of La Liga 2016/17.

FC Barcelona will play a Eibar side that has lost 3 of their last 5 matches and they have scored only two goals in their last six games.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid will travel to La Rosaleda to face Malaga at the same time and Barça will hope that Malaga pulls off a miraculous result at the La Rosaleda. As the Real Madrid goal scoring spree stretches on FC Barcelona find themselves in real danger of losing the La Liga title. It will be catastrophe if both Real and Barça lose at the same time.

Despite their status as the smallest club from the Basque region (at least in the top two tiers of Spanish football), Eibar proudly sit in the top half of the La Liga table and will surely push the Blaugrana to their limits tomorrow.

Luis Enrique’s side have done their job in the past months as they have just kept winning games and pilling the pressure on Real Madrid, but they await any slip up from Real Madrid to snatch the La Liga title.

FC Barcelona are on a seven match unbeaten run ( W6 D1 ) and they would love to clinch their seventh consecutive win in the La Liga when they lock horns with SD Eibar at the Camp Nou on Sunday.
