Eibar v Barcelona: LaLiga TV and online live streaming

The hosts are capable or making the La Liga leaders work hard, but we think another low-scoring away win is on the cards for the Blaugrana.

Barcelona head to Eibar this weekend hoping to return to winning ways after consecutive draws in La Liga.

The hosts, though, have won five of their last seven home games and will provide a stern challenge for the Blaugrana.

With a Champions League tie against Chelsea coming up on Tuesday evening, the weekend trip to the Estadio Ipurua comes at a tricky time for Ernesto Valvdere.

Eibar have lost all seven matches they have played against Barcelona in La Liga and dabblebet offer them at 6/1 (7.00) to claim a first ever win.

The visitors are priced at 1/2 (1.50), while a fourth league draw of the season at Ipurua is is available at 10/3 (4.33).

Everything you need to know ahead of the Catalans' trip to Ipurua in La Liga this weekend...

Barcelona travel to Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday, but the league leaders are in action away to Eibar first in the Primera Division on Saturday.

Ernesto Valverde's side will have one eye on their European game at Stamford Bridge, scene of one of the club's most famous nights as they earned a dramatic late draw to advance to the final en route to the treble in 2008-09.

Barca could only draw at home to Getafe last weekend in a rare goalless game at Camp Nou, but still lead La Liga by seven points with Atletico in second and Real Madrid 17 adrift (with a game in hand) in fourth place.

Here's a look at everything you need to know ahead of Barca's trip to Eibar on Saturday...

Team News

Eibar are enjoying yet another spectacularly successful campaign in La Liga, the Basques are in seventh spot and just one point behind sixth-placed Sevilla ahead of their game against Barca on Saturday.

Jose Luis Mendilbar's side thrashed Sevilla 5-1 in their last home match, before beating Leganes 1-0 away from home – their 10th victory in La Liga this season.

The Basques, 6-1 losers at Camp Nou earlier this season, will be without striker Sergi Enrich and midfielder Fran Rico on Saturday (both injured), while defender Paulo Oliveira is doubtful.

Gerard Pique is back from injury after sitting out the game against Getafe, while Thomas Vermaelen is doubtful. 

If the Belgian makes it, coach Valverde will have a fully fit squad at his disposal for the game in the Basque Country.

Samuel Umtiti was suspended for the game against Getafe, but the France defender is back for this one and Valverde has no other players banned this weekend.

With the possible exception of Vermaelen, Barca boss Valverde will have all of his players available this weekend and the 54-year-old is set to field a strong side against Eibar.

Pique and Umtiti are back from injury and suspension, respectively, and should both feature in central defence.

Andres Iniesta and Philippe Coutinho could both start in midfield, although the Spain star may be kept in reserve for Tuesday night's Champions League clash away to Chelsea.

Barcelona (4-4-2): Ter Stegen; Semedo, Piqué, Umtiti, Alba; Vidal, Rakitic, Busquets, Coutinho; Messi, Suárez

Eibar (4-4-2): Dmitrovic; Peña, Ramis, Arbilla, Ángel; Orellana, Diop, García, Inui; Charles, Kike
