Barcelona vs Eibar Live Streaming | 13th January 2019 The league leaders will be looking to cement their grasp on the summit, but Ernesto Valverde’s side will be wary of the threat their visitors offer.
Jose Luis Mendilibar’s side delivered a shock 3-0 upset against Real Madrid earlier in the season and despite no wins in the division since, will still take heart into their trip to Catalania.
But, unlike their near-perfect domestic achievements in 2017-18, they have sometimes failed to recapture that spark so far.
A 2-1 loss to Levante in the Copa del Rey, even if fielding a relatively underpowered side, is still a sore result for Ernesto Valverde’s side when they are used to such success.
As such, their return to top-flight action this weekend presents an imperative need to bounce back with victory and tighten their grasp on the summit of the division.
Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are expected to slot straight back into a fearsome front-three after sitting out the previous defeat and they should bring some added firepower for the visit of Eibar.
