Barcelona v Eibar: preview, line-ups and betting odds

The LaLiga gets decided today, with Barcelona needing to beat Eibar and hope that title rivals Real Madrid fall to defeat against Málaga at the Rosaleda.

Update:
Barcelona v Eibar preview

The LaLiga title race is going down to the wire. Barcelona must win, and hope that Madrid fall to defeat at Málaga, if they are to win their third consecutive league title.

Eibar travel to Camp Nou from the Basque Country following an excellent season, and are sat in ninth place. Mendilibar's men threatened to break in to the European places earlier in the campaign, but the fact that they fell short should not detract from the achievement of a club with a stadium capacity of a little over seven thousand.

Eibar XI: Yoel; Capa, Lejeune, Arbilla, Juncà; Peña, Dani García, Escalante, Inui; Enrich, Kike.
