Starting XI: Eibar v Barca

LaLiga

Teams: Eibar v FC Barcelona

Date: 19 October 2019

Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurúa

FC Barcelona have the chance to temporarily move top of LaLiga when they take on Eibar at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurúa this afternoon - Here's how they line up.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 13h00.

After a shaky start to the season, the Catalan giants got their campaign back on track, having won their last four matches in all competitions.

The last encounter for Ernesto Valverde's charges ended in a 4-0 thrashing of Sevilla before the international break, with Lionel Messi getting his first goal of the season.

Eibar, meanwhile, will be aiming for a return to winning ways after drawing 1-1 with Real Betis, although the draw did extended their unbeaten run to four matches in LaLiga.

Both sides will have absentees to deal with as Barcelona will be without the suspended Ousmane Dembele and Gerard Pique, while Gonzalo Escalante misses out for Eibar.

Eibar will be confident heading into the encounter after registering a 2-2 draw the last time these two sides met in Eibar.

Here's how they line up:

Eibar: Dmitrović, Arbilla, Ángel, Oliveira, Orellana, De Blasis, Diop, León, Álvarez, Charles, Enrich.

FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Lenglet, Alba, Umtiti, Roberto, Henrique, de Jong, Busquets, Griezmann, Messi, Suárez.
