TIMELINE

How Barcelona could line up against Eibar

By , European Football Editor | 2mo
Sports Mole looks at how Barcelona could line up in Sunday's La Liga clash with Eibar at Camp Nou.

Barcelona will be looking to make it six straight La Liga wins when they welcome Eibar to Camp Nou on Sunday night.

The Spanish champions have opened up a five-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid at the top of the table, while they are 10 points clear of bitter rivals Real Madrid in Spain's top flight.

Barcelona will enter this weekend's match off the back of a defeat, however, having lost 2-1 at Levante in the first leg of their last-16 Copa del Rey tie on Thursday night.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Ernesto Valverde's side could line up in the La Liga affair at Camp Nou.

Valverde rung the changes for the clash with Levante on Thursday night, but not too many of his squad players impressed for the Spanish champions.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba will return to the XI this weekend, while Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi will be back in the final third.

Valverde has decisions to make elsewhere, however, with Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal both playing the 90 minutes against Levante.

Arthur and Ivan Rakitic should return in the middle of the park, while Ousmane Dembele should keep out Philippe Coutinho once again.

Coutinho scored a penalty against Levante on Thursday in a match where Dembele disappointed, but the France international has been in impressive form alongside Luis Suarez and Messi in recent weeks.

Rafinha, Sergi Samper, Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen remain unavailable for selection.
