Barcelona VS Eibar Live Football Score 22 May 2021
Barcelona will be looking to end their 2020-21 La Liga campaign on a high when they travel to already-relegated Eibar on Saturday evening. Ronald Koeman’s side cannot finish higher than third but could still drop into fourth on the final weekend of the campaign, while Eibar’s relegation was confirmed when they lost 4-1 to Valencia on Sunday night.
There is no getting away from the fact that it has been a tough campaign for the club, who have won six, drawn 12 and lost 19 of their 37 matches to collect 30 points, which has left them bottom of the table entering the final gameweek. Eibar had a mini-revival earlier this month as they beat Alaves and Getafe in back-to-back matches before drawing at home to Real Betis, but Sunday’s 4-1 defeat to Valencia confirmed their relegation.
Jose Luis Mendilibar’s side have the worst home record in La Liga this season, picking up just 13 points from 18 matches, recording only two victories. There will be a lot of changes at the club this summer, but a win over Barca on the final weekend of the campaign would certainly give their supporters something to cheer as they prepare for life back in the Segunda Division.
After a defeat on the penultimate matchday of La Liga, Barcelona will head into the final game of the season against Eibar with just third place to play for. The Blaugrana will face off against an Eibar side whose seven-year stay in the Spanish Primera Liga came to a painful end following their defeat to Valencia. The Azulgranas will have nothing to play for but pride, and will hope to go out on a bang after an incredible stay in the top flight.
Regardless of where the two teams are in the table heading into this game, Eibar (seven) have picked up more points in their last five games than the Blaugrana (five). The two sides have faced off 13 times, and Barcelona have won 11 of the games. Two games have ended as draws as Eibar have never beaten the Blaugrana in the top flight. Barcelona’s biggest absence will come in the form of superstar Lionel Messi. The Argentine has been given permission by the club to miss this weekend’s final La Liga match of the season to go on holiday.
