Reason for Barcelona vs Eibar Predictions
Heading to the clash at Camp Nou, Barcelona has managed 25 points from 14 matches and are placed fifth. Barcelona beat Real Valladolid 3-0 in their last game, packing up their fourth straight unbeaten outing since suffering a 3-0 humiliation by Juventus. They are now on three wins in the previous four matches, and the inspirational Lionel Messi has scored in three of the last four games, after having a slow start to the season. The Argentine has scored five goals in the previous five league matches at home and will be a key point man against Eibar, having scored 12 goals against them in the last six meetings. Barca has scored two or more goals in the previous three matches and has registered two clean sheets in their last five games. In their previous 15 games, they have nine wins and four losses, and with a four-game unbeaten run in the league, they will be confident enough going to this clash. Four of their last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals, and Barcelona goes to this game with a very good scoring run, having found the back of the net in 13 of their last 15 league matches. Philippe Coutinho enjoys the pitch, when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems, he is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Messi is a master of football, and it is a pleasure to watch the wizard with the ball.
On their part, Eibar heads to Camp Nou, having lost their last two matches and being winless in four of their previous five games. They lost at home to Real Madrid and, in their most recent clash, away to Alaves. Against Alaves, they took a fourth-minute lead but went to the break trailing 2-1, and it ended that way. Eibar has not led at halftime in any of their last five league matches, and they head to this game on four winless outings in the league. The big positive for them will be the good run that Pedro Leon has had, scoring three goals in three matches. However, his effort can only be felt with a good organization in defense by the team that has kept two clean sheets in the last five games. Pedro’s three goals have come in the previous two away matches, and they have scored in all their previous five away games, so they’ll want to keep that going here. Luis Rioja is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the left flank. He has speed and an excellent one-on-one game.
Barcelona is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at half time.
The prediction for this match is over 3.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
