Barcelona v Eibar Betting: Catalans to ease to routine win as title hopes

The Blaugrana need a win on the final day of the season to have any hope of retaining their title and we are backing them to have few problems

Since Sergio Ramos scored an injury-time equaliser in the Clasico back in December, Barcelona have won 11 successive matches at home in La Liga.

At the time, that late header from Real Madrid's captain felt like a big goal and the point gained by Los Blancos, as well as the two dropped by the Blaugrana could well be crucial come Sunday evening.

Barca head into their final game of the season needing to beat Eibar at the Camp Nou, which seems straightforward enough, but also requiring Malaga to defeat Real Madrid on the Costa Del Sol.

The first outcome looks much more likely than the second, yet in Luis Enrique's final game in charge of the Catalans, the manager will still harbour some hope of an improbable league triumph.

Bet365, who are live streaming the clash at the Camp Nou for UK-based customers, offer the hosts at just 1/20 (1.05) for the win while Eibar can be backed at 33/1 (34.00) and the draw is available at 14/1 (15.00).

Their destiny is not in their own hands, yet Barcelona must still do their job in claiming a win and there seems little doubt that they are capable of overcoming Eibar. In a market as one-sided as this, finding value in backing the hosts is tough, with Barca to score over 4.5 goals offered at just 6/4 (2.50) despite it only paying out in five of their home league matches this season.

Instead, we will back over 2.5 goals and both teams to score 'no' at 6/5 (2.20), which essentially is backing a high-scoring win to nil for the Catalans. Eibar have only scored in one of their last six games, with the Basques only managing one goal in the five matches they have played against Barca in La Liga.

Luis Enrique's men have won their last two games against Eibar 4-0 and this selection seems a shrewd way of backing another convincing Barca victory.
