Preview:

In this Spanish Liga game, Eibar are set to host Barcelona at the Municipal de Ipurua. While Eibar have already been relegated, Barcelona have only the third position to play for in this match. Atletico Madrid are the front-runners in the title race and the Catalan Giants would be disappointed with their performances in the latter half of the league. The match is slated to begin at 9:30 PM (IST).

Analysis:

Bottom-placed Eibar have this final match of the season as their last game of the top-tier football in Spain, before they play in the Segunda Division in the following season. The Azulgranas have managed to win only 6 matches in 37 games. They lost their previous game to Valencia and the score-line read 1-4. Bryan Gil was the sole goal-scorer for Eibar.

On the other hand, the Catalan Giants would look to win this game to consolidate their third position in the table. Ronald Koeman will not be a happy man after his team’s dismal performances, off-late. The Blaugrana have been winless in their last three games and have lost the previous match against Celta Vigo. Though Lionel Messi had scored the opening goal, Celta Vigo struck twice and pocketed off the game.

Team News:

Eibar

There are no injury news or updates from the Eibar camp.

Barcelona

Lionel Messi will miss Barcelona's last La Liga game of the season against Eibar as he will "enjoy a rest" before next month's Copa America. Danish striker Martin Braithwaite is most likely to replace him. Clement Lenglet was flashed a red card in the previous game and he will thus be missing out on this match. Ansu Fati, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Philippe Coutinho will be missing out on this game due to injuries.
