class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With Lionel Messi among the high-profile absentees for the Blaugrana's final game of the La Liga season, Goal is backing their opponents to score
Barcelona play the final game of what has been a disappointing La Liga campaign on Saturday afternoon when they travel to the at the Estadio Ipurua to face relegated Eibar.

Another draw can be backed at 17/4 (5.25) with bet365, while a home win is priced at 19/4 (5.75) and an away success at 4/9 (1.44).
Eibar vs Barcelona Team News
There will be changes in the Barcelona starting eleven for the final game of the season with Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Ansu Fati and Sergi Roberto all injured, while Clement Lenglet is suspended.
Both Lionel Messi and Pedri have been given permission to miss the game and start their holidays early.
The hosts have no injury concerns ahead of their last game in the top-flight for at least a year.
Eibar vs Barcelona Preview
Barcelona’s season has ended in insipid fashion, with the side having won just one of their last five fixtures to drop out of the title race without so much as a whimper.
Central to the Catalans’ demise has been a lack of defensive solidity, which has seen them concede in seven of their last eight matches.
Indeed, Barca have shipped at least twice in six of those last eight matches and with a number of important players missing, there could be some interest in backing them to concede on Saturday.
Eibar vs Barcelona Tips and Predictions
If matches lasted 45 minutes, Barcelona would be six points clear at the top of the La Liga table.
The Blaugrana have been extremely poor in the second halves of recent matches and backing Eibar to score after the break at 8/11 (1.73) should be an appealing option, while both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the game is priced at just 1/2 (1.50).
