Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a come-from-behind win over Getafe, Barcelona welcome Eibar at their Camp Nou on Matchday 5. The Catalan giants have been impressive at the start of the season and they aim to keep their 100% record intact. Ernesto Valverde’s troops are brimming with confidence ahead of Tuesday’s football game and they are likely to go all guns blazing at los Armeros. Leo Messi failed to score in the 2-1 win over los Azulones, but, as always, all eyes will be on the Argentine ace when Barcelona and Eibar face each other on Matchday 5. Barca are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that los Armeros often struggle on the travels, we predict that the league leaders are going to extend their winning run in the Spanish top flight. It has to be noted that Barcelona are after their seventh consecutive win over Eibar.
