Eibar v Barcelona La Liga, 17th February 3.15pm
Eibar have done alright on home soil and in they have taken home wins over Valencia and Sevilla in recent home games. So they probably won’t give the visiting Barcelona an easy time of things on the weekend when the Catalans come for a visit. Barcelona though will be defending their great unbeaten away form for the season in the Spanish top flight.

Eibar v Barcelona Betting Tips
Eibar are having a pretty good season as they head into the weekend in seventh place in La Liga, and with a chance of climbing as high as fifth. That would involve them being the first side to beat Barcelona though in the league this season though to get up there. Eibar are on a four-match undefeated streak of form at the moment and they have lost just one of their last twelve games in La Liga with a superb W8 D3 L1 record in that sequence. That’s impressive considering they lost seven of their opening eleven games this season. They have taken home wins over Valencia and Sevilla in this positive run of form and they are averaging almost two goals per game on home soil. The only loss that they have suffered in this great stretch of form was a 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid back in mid-January. They have taken only the one clean sheet in their last eight league games though but it all adds up to both teams to score at Bet365 not looking bad value at all at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 12th, 2018 at 3:55 p.m.)
Barcelona took a 6-1 home win over Eibar back in September and that took them to seven wins from seven previous matches and during that run of matches, Barcelona have taken five clean sheets. They have also scored at least four goals in each of their last four games against Eibar and have scored at least two in all seven in their previous games against them.
Barcelona have won their last two visits to Eibar by a 4-0 score lin. In the bet365 correct score market the shortest priced option is a Barcelona 2-0 at 13/2, however, a good Barcelona 3-1 at 10/1 isn’t without its appeal* (Betting Odds taken on February 12th, 2018 at 3:55 p.m.). Barcelona are still unbeaten for the league season but they have drawn their last two, getting held by neighbours Espanyol and then playing out a 0-0 draw at home against Getafe last weekend. That was the first time Barcelona had failed to score at home this term. Away from home, the Catalans have gone W9 D3 L0 for the season and they have scored in all twelve of those away fixtures. They have also averaged 2.4 goals per game on their travels and have conceded just the six goals with a clean sheet in 58% of their away games. Their top scorer away home this season is Luis Suarez as 10 of his 16 league goals have come out on the road.
Who will win – Eibar v Barcelona Predictions
This may not be the easiest afternoon for the league leaders. Barcelona will probably get a decent challenge in this one looking at Eibar’s form. Still, they can be back to get the job done or perhaps this weekend only by a one-goal margin as they will be looking ahead to Champions League action in the week.
