EIB vs BAR Dream11: Eibar are down due to their head-to-head record against Elche and Huesca despite being able to finish level on points with both sides. They come up against a Barcelona side who are already out of the title race but could finish fourth should they lose and Sevilla win – that would be their lowest finish since 2003. It could also be Lionel Messi’s final game for the Catalans given that he is yet to sign an extension to his contract. Given that, the Argentine will be looking to potentially go out on a high so a Barca win, although you shouldn’t trust them, is the favoured result against already relegated opposition.
