Barcelona will be hoping to get their fifth straight victory in all competitions.

La Liga action kicks off after the international break with defending champions Barcelona travelling to Ipurua Municipal stadium to take on Eibar.

After a shaky start to their campaign, Barcelona have finally started finding their feet with the Catalan giants winning all of their last four matches in all competitions. The Blaugrana, though, find themselves two points below arch-rivals Real Madrid after dropping points during the start of the season.

The host, on the other hand, are languishing just two points above the relegation zone. The Los Armeros will be looking for their third straight victory at home when they take on the La Liga giants.

Ronald Araujo is also unavailable for the Blaugrana after the debutant was sent off against Sevilla, 14 minutes after coming on as a second half substitute for Todibo.
