Eibar vs. Barcelona: Luis Suarez to continue fine form for Ernesto Valverde’s side?



Veteran striker Luis Suarez helped Barcelona recover from one down to edge past Inter Milan in their recent Champions League meeting.

The Uruguayan’s domestic exploits have been equally crucial in ensuring Ernesto Valverde’s side keep up the pace with league leaders Real Madrid.

The Catalan club are now on a four-game winning streak across all competitions, their longest such run so far this season.

They travel to 14th-place Eibar in Liga Primera on Saturday in the hope of making it five from five. They are available at 1/2 to do so.

Home side Eibar have found victories hard to come by, picking up three points on only two occasions. Just one of those have come at home.

They are currently 11/2 to overcome Barcelona and cause one of the shocks of the season so far.

Barca enter the fixture as the top scorers in the league with 20 goals from their eight games. Suarez has four of those and is available at 15/4 to open the scoring.

Antoine Griezmann will also looking to add to his tally of three goals for his new club. The French forward is at 5/1 to score first, and 13/10 to score anytime.

Scoring the goals for the home side has been Fabian Orellana. The Chilean is available at 16/1 to score the first goal of the game.

Valverde’s outfit have twice as many goals as their hosts, with four coming in the victory against Sevilla just before the international break. They are priced at 20/1 to pick up another 4-0 win.

Despite red cards in victories over Getafe and Sevilla, Gerard Pique and Co. managed to keep a clean sheet on both occasions. Barca are currently 13/8 to keep a third successive clean sheet at Eibar.

Valverde has also guided his team to 5-2 victories twice so far in the campaign, with their first two wins of the season coming at home to Real Betis and Valencia in seven-goal thrillers. It’s 50/1 for another 5-2 victory for Barca.

Summer signing Frenkie de Jong has been impressing those around him at his new club ever since his arrival from Ajax. The midfielder scored in that rout against Valencia, also netting for the Netherlands against Germany last month.

He’s 16/1 to score the first goal of the game, and 9/2 to score anytime throughout the 90 minutes.

A draw between the two sides meanwhile is priced at 7/2.
