FC Barcelona faces Eibar this Saturday at the Camp Nou with the intention of adding 3 new points that will allow it to finish the leading day of LaLiga. The Catalans also look sideways at the Champions League and want to arrive with good feelings
The FC Barcelona attained recortar distances with the Real Madrid in the past day and faces this with win to recover at last the leadership that escaped him in Mestalla. The Barcelona confront this Saturday to the Eibar in the Camp Nou from the 16:00 hours. The armeros are so alone three points above the descent and are playing the life, by what will not go out to the stadium barcelonista to see them come.
Besides, the group blaugrana is fully conscious of the important that is to arrive to the gone of the eighth of final of the Champions League after having added a victory. The Catalans play against the Naples in Saint Paolo the Tuesday and dream with being able to begin this meeting like leaders of LaLiga. The Madrid takes him out right now a point to the culés, that need to win to the Basques and expect that the merengues lose in his visit to the Raise in the Ciutat of València (Saturday to the 21:00).
Precisely by the vicinity that there is between east bump suspender belt and the gone of the League of Champions, Quique Setién could opt for giving rest to some headline. It is true that the Eibar always puts the very complicated things, but also is truth that only there are three days of rest until the Tuesday and that next Sunday is the Classical. In this commitment of Santiago Bernabéu could be more than half league, by what is risky that play all the usual this Saturday.
If the Cantabrian trainer no broken already, will not do it until 7 March, that on is a tremendously difficult party against the Real Sociedad home. By all this, the normal is that two or three headlines, as little, have rest in front of the Basques. In defence, only Junior Firpo seems to have the place ensured after the injury of Jordi Alba. In the right-handed lane, is very likely that the one who play this Saturday from among Nélson Semedo and Sergi Roberto do not do it in Champions. In the central axis, is almost safe the presence of Samuel Umtiti, but there are more doubts between if it will be Hammered or Lenglet the one who accompany him.
In the centre of the field also could have novelties, since it does not seem very recommended that Sergio Busquets and Frenkie of Jong, with all the minutes that have already in his legs, contest three consecutive crashes (Eibar, Naples and Madrid). One of the two could rest, although knowing to Setién, would not be of extrañar that had both, since for him are insustituibles. It was as it was, Arturo Vidal could go in like third midfield player, with Arthur Melo and Ivan Rakitic in the recámara. Of the election that there is the trainer barcelonista in the half will be able to take out a lot of conclusions of face to what will do in Champions.
Leo Messi will be the referent in the forward a week more and everything indicates that they will accompany him Ansu Fati and Antoine Griezmann. The '10' looks forward to to break his bad series goleadora to be able to arrive to Saint Paolo with the best possible feelings. The one of Rosario adds already four parties been still in LaLiga without seeing door and is entirely gafado. Against the Getafe had two very clear, but one failed it and another took it out to him with brilliance the put azulón. The Eibar could pay the dishes broken if the Argentinian fine-tunes at last his puntería.
The Eibar is playing the permanence
The Barcelona will have to face up to a team armero that does not win from 18 January, when it surpassed in Ipurua to the Athletic of Madrid. Since, two ties and a defeat in League, and the elimination in Glass of the King when falling 3-1 against the Badajoz. It is a quite negative dynamics that it could carry to the Basques to the places of descent in the next days. The Celtic of Vigo, that is antepenultimate right now, is to alone three points, whereas Leganés and Espanyol are to five.
It is necessary to remember that the ones of Mendilibar carry a party less than the rest of groups of LaLiga less the Real Sociedad. In the past day, the meeting that confronted to both suspended and will play on 10 March. This mattress reassures to the Eibar, but the Basque club still like this knows that it can not allow the luxury to go out to the Camp Nou defeated. The Barça will find against a hard team, that will go to presionar up and that will look for the goal. In favour of the culés are the spaces that this pressure could leave backwards so that Messi, Ansu and Griezmann mark the difference.
