Barcelona vs Eibar: Messi can shoot down Gunsmiths again
Odds: Barcelona 11/100, Draw 8/1, Eibar 35/2

Barcelona have won all six meetings with Eibar since the latter team moved up to LaLiga and it is hard to see Lionel Messi and Co not making it a magnificent seven on Tuesday night.
The Catalan giants have scored four goals in each of the last three encounters, with Messi responsible for five of those strikes and netting on all five occasions he has faced Eibar.
With the hosts yet to drop a point in this competition, 33/4 for a 4-0 scoreline gets the nod in our Barcelona vs Eibar betting predictions.
A Look At Barcelona’s Betting Odds
Barcelona had to rely on substitutes Denis Suarez and Paulinho to help them come from behind and win 2-1 at Eibar on Saturday, but that victory did come at a cost.
Record signing Ousmane Dembele is set to spend over three months on the sidelines after suffering a thigh injury in the first half at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
“It’s a pity, because he was playing well,” said coach Ernesto Valverde. “But the squad is big, the league has just started and all players deserve to play.”
That was the first time Barca had conceded in four LaLiga wins this term, while they also powered to a 3-0 triumph over Juventus in the Champions League on home turf.
Eibar netted twice here in May’s 4-2 loss but had lost the previous five meetings by an aggregate score of 16-1.
Those stats make 19/20 for a home win to nil a percentage pick for our Barcelona vs Eibar betting tips.
A Look At Eibar’s Betting Odds
Eibar, nicknamed the Gunsmiths after the city’s traditional industry, have made a solid start to the new LaLiga campaign, winning 1-0 at Malaga in the opening round of games and beating Leganes by the same scoreline at home on Friday.
Sergi Enrich gives them good movement up front, working alongside more-powerful Portuguese forward Bebe.
However, in between those victories, they did lose 1-0 at home to Athletic Bilbao and 3-0 at Sevilla, highlighting the lack of a cutting edge when coming up against better defences.
At the other end of the pitch, Barca have scored late on in each of their last four encounters.
That makes 18/25 for a home goal between 75:01 minutes and full-time stand out from the Barcelona vs Eibar odds.
Getafe 1-2 BARCELONA – Denis Suarez, Paulinho
