Eibar and Barcelona to Draw

Betting on a draw between Eibar and Barcelona is a high-risk/high-reward situation and we feel it’s worth taking a punt since Barcelona players are probably already on their vacations in their minds, while Eibar will fight until the last minute for a slim chance of making a miraculous escape from relegation to the Spanish Segunda. Also, Blaugrana has failed to win in the last three matches in the league, so our prediction doesn’t sound so outrageous with that in mind.

Over 3.5 Total Goals

Even though Eibar is only ahead of Getafe with an average of 2.16 goals per game, we expect to see a high-scoring match here since their opponent is Barcelona with an average of 3.3 goals per game, which is the highest score in the league. The odds on over 2.5 total goals are too low, so we suggest betting on over 3.5 total goals instead, which is something that happened in two of the last five meetings between these teams.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

As we already stated, we expect Eibar to fight until the end and chase the win. So, we expect them to score at least once in this game, while there’s no doubt that Barcelona will score as well. So, both teams to score sounds like a reasonable bet, especially since the last game between these two teams this season has ended in a 1-1 draw. Also, both teams have scored in seven of the last eight Barca games in the league.

Eibar vs Barcelona preview: The home team hoping for a miracle

It would take a true miracle for Eibar to stay in La Liga. One part of that miracle is them beating Barcelona, so let’s take a closer look at both teams and what we can expect in this game.

Eibar

It seemed at one point that Eibar might be able to pull through after they’ve won two games in a row, followed by a draw against Real Betis. However, the loss to Valencia in the last round has most likely sealed their faith. Their only chance to stay up is to beat Barcelona by three or four goals, while Huesca, Elche, and Valladolid all lose their games. On the bright side, the team is fully healthy and they will be able to field their best team for the ultimate game of the season.

Barcelona

After winning the Copa del Rey by beating Athletic Bilbao in the final, it seemed that Barca can turn their season around completely since they had everything in their hands in the league as well at one point. However, recent poor results have put Barcelona too far away from the title and they enter their last game of the season only fighting for their honour and nothing else. Coutinho, ter Stegen, Fati, and Roberto will miss the match against Eibar.
