Barcelona: Lionel Messi and company have won five league games in a row and find themselves in a great position. Barca should be heavily favored in a number of upcoming games. Combine that with Atletico Madrid’s tricky schedule and Barca could sit even more comfortably atop the table in the weeks to come.
Eibar: Eibar hasn’t won any of its last six games, and in fact the team has had to settle for a draw in its last five. That lack of winning is what has the team in a dangerous spot. And the problem has simply come down to not scoring enough. In the last three games, Eibar has two goals scored on 57 shots.
Barcelona vs. Eibar prediction
