Spanish La Liga

Starting XI: Barca Vs Eibar

FC Barcelona host Eibar in La Liga and a win will give themselves a chance to grab the top spot in the table.

La Liga

Teams: Barcelona vs Eibar

Venue: Camp Nou, Barcelona

Time: 6.15pm

The Blaugrana will look to exploit the fact that their current neighbours on the log, Celta and Real Madrid, play against each other this weekend, and maybe propel themselves to the top of the standings unopposed.

The two sides have played against each other only twice in their history, both of those games taking place last season, and Barcelona won both encounters without conceding a goal

Eibar are on a five-match unbeaten run away from home in La Liga, their best ever record in the top flight.

Barcelona have conceded a goal in each of their past three league games at home – they have never conceded in four successive league home matches under current manager Luis Enrique.

Eibar and Real Madrid are the only two sides to have conceded 100% of their La Liga goals this season in the second half of games.

In team news, Barcelona will be without Lionel Messi, Rafinha, Andres Iniesta and Sergi Roberto due to injury, while Eibar will be missing Adrian Gayoso, Jaime, Antonio Luna, Ivan Ramis and Adrian.

Here is how the teams will line up:

Barcelona: Eibar: Bravo; Alves, Pique, Bartra, Alba; Mascherano, Busquets, Rakitic; Sandro, Suarez, Neymar

Eibar: Riesgo, Capa, Dos Santos, Pantic, Junce, Escalante, Dani Garcia, Verdi, Keko, Inui, Borja
