Messi stands on the brink of history this weekend with the Argentine striker needing just three goals to become the all-time top scorer in La Liga football. The 27 year old, celebrating the 10th anniversary of his debut for Barcelona currently stands on 249 goals with two goals enough to see him go level with Telmo Zarra at the top of the list.
While all eyes will be on Messi, Eibar will be keen to show they are no pushers. The club are currently 10th in the league after an impressive start that includes a narrow 2-1 defeat away to defending champions, Atletico Madrid.
Barcelona v Eibar Live – Messi amongst the goals?
That slender one goal defeat prompted Barcelona defender Jordi Alba to declare that the minnows won’t be a walkover.
“They are having a great season since being promoted to the first division,” the 25-year-old left-back told a news conference. “I like the way they play football. They have had some very good games away from home.”
Barcelona have no major injury worries ahead of this weekend while Eibar, with two wins and three draws from seven games, are also likely to be at full strength.
That marquee record signing mentioned earlier in the piece, is former Barcelona B player Dani Nieto.
The 23 year old has insisted that his side will be out to cause a surprise, telling reporters “its obvious Barca will attack as usual, so we’ll try to get at them on the counter-attack. We have intensity and good strategy, and we’ll try to exploit them.”
