Barcelona vs Eibar
Spain – La Liga
Date: Tuesday, 29 December 2020
Kick-off at 18:15 UK/ 19:15 CET
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Barcelona is fighting in the league to make it back to the top, and the recent four-game unbeaten streak is a good sign for Koeman and his men. The Catalans will play on the back of a 0-3 win on the road against Real Valladolid last time out in the league schedule.
Eibar extends their winless streak to the fourth game in a row in their schedule. The visitor has picked up only 15 points in 15 appearances and is close to the relegation zone. They are on a two-game losing streak in the campaign and will visit after suffering a 2-1 loss on the road against Alaves.
Barcelona vs Eibar Head-to-head (h2h)
- The host has been unbeaten in all their last twelve meetings.
- Only one of their overall 12 matches has ended in a draw in 2019.
- Both teams have scored only once in their recent five fixtures.
- Their previous encounter gave a 5-0 home win for the Catalans.
- The visitor has scored only 6 goals in their overall 12 attempts.
Barcelona vs Eibar Prediction
Barcelona will come into their last game for 2020 without the likes of some of their main players, including their Argentinian star, Lionel Messi. Ronald Koeman has decided to rest the ace striker, while Pique, Dembele, Ansu Fati, and Alba will miss out on the game due to injury.
With the likes of young guns in the squad, Barcelona is dangerous enough for a team that is trailing behind them by 9 points on the table as it stands. Brathwaite will be a key player for Barca and Eibar forward Kike Garcia could threaten the host’s defense with his current form.
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair, even at the absence of Lionel Messi in the middle. So, the tip for over 2.5 goals will come in handy from the goals department to yield decent returns in the encounter.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash. The host has lost none of their clashes with Eibar before and has an unbeaten streak in the campaign. They are likely to extend that winning streak in the La Liga schedule.
