Barcelona News and Form

Barcelona collected a 2-1 away win at Getafe on the weekend to give them their fifth straight win in the league. They opened up a five-point lead at the top of the table with that success as well. Overall this season at the Nou Camp in the top flight Barcelona hold a W6 D2 L1 record and they have averaged 3.3 goals per home game this term. 56% of fixtures at the Nou Camp have ended over 3.5 goals. They have collected a 2-0 win in each of their last two home fixtures in La Liga. In total, they have taken a clean sheet in three of their nine home games.

The Catalans have been leading at half time in five of their home games so the Barcelona/Barcelona half time/full-time option is valid. Barca have scored in all of their league matches played this season. In each of their last five (home and away) they have produced at least two goals per game. Of the goals which they have scored at home this season 63% of them have been in the second half of games. They are top scorers in the division by pretty much a country mile.

Barcelona v Eibar Head to Head

The Catalans have won all 8 previous meetings with Eibar
They have scored at least three goals in six of their eight previous
Barcelona have scored at least three goals in each of their four home games against Eibar
Eibar have failed to score in five of their eight previous contests against Barcelona

Eibar News and Form

Nothing about this looks as if it is going to be an easy game for Eibar. They are currently on a five-match winless streak of form in the top flight. Last weekend they could only collect a 0- 0 draw against Villarreal which was, incidentally, their fourth straight league draw. Overall away from home this season they are just W1 D3 L4 in the top flight. But to their credit, their current form (home and away) isn’t bad as they have lost just one of their last eight fixtures (W2 D5). In total, they have managed only five road goals this season

Eibar have conceded an average of 1.5 goals per away fixtures and just a quarter of their away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Their record at half time away from home is W5 L3 this season and only twice have they opened the scoring in an away fixture. Only Huesca have a worse away record in La Liga than Eibar currently. If they were to snap themselves out of a five-match winless slump of league form, it would be a spectacular upset.

Barcelona v Eibar Predictions

Barcelona to win: It will probably feel as if there has been a glitch in the matrix if Barcelona failed to win this one. They have dominated Eibar in their eight previous meetings as we expect that to continue here. Barcelona to win to nil.
