Jose Angel could or could not be back in the team sheet after being back in light training recently. Cote remains a long term absentee, while Gonzalo Escalante will miss out the clash against Barcelona after being shown two yellows in the 1-1 draw to Real Betis. Pablo De Blasis could feature at right-back as Rober Correa remains a doubt.
Jose Luis Mendilibar is likely to put up the same playing eleven which fetched his side a 1-1 draw to Real Betis away from home. Dmitrovic would be up in goal, while Blasis, Oliveira, Arbilla and Bigas at back four. Leon would come in place of the suspended Escalante to partner alongside Diop and Exposito. Orellana, Gracia and Inui should start up top.
Samuel Umtiti and Carles Perez are highly unlikely to feature in the forthcoming fixture due to injuries. Meanwhile, Jordi Alba and Junior Firpo are back in training and should be in contention against Eibar. Gerard Pique, Ousmane Dembele and Ronald Araujo are also ruled out because of suspensions received. As a result, Clement Lenglet could be partnered along with Jean-Clair Todibo at centre-half. Frankie De Jong, Sergio Busquets and Arthur should feature in midfield, while the trio of Griezmann, Messi and Suarez remains upfront.
Eibar- Dmitrovic; Blasis, Oliveria, Arbilla, Cote; Diop, Alvarez; inui, Exposito, Orellana; Garcia
Barcelona- ter Stegan; Semedo, Todibo, Lenglet, Alba; de Jong, Sergio Busquets, Arthur, Messi, Suarez, Griezmann
