When Barcelona travels to already-relegated Eibar on Saturday evening, they will be hoping to complete their 2020-21 La Liga campaign on a positive note.

Ronald Koeman's team cannot finish higher than third, but they might still finish fourth in the last weekend of the season, while Eibar's relegation was guaranteed when they were defeated 4-1 by Valencia on Sunday night.

Team News

Eibar have a complete set of players available for this weekend's match, which means Mendilibar will have to make a number of selections.

Sergi Enrich, Bryan Gil, and Papa Diop are among the players who are anticipated to start after the team's crushing setback at Valencia.

Despite the heartbreak of the defeat at Mestalla, Miguel Atienza and Edu Exposito should preserve their positions, and the back four may remain unchanged.

Following a one-game suspension, Frenkie de Jong will be eligible for Barca, while Clement Lenglet will be suspended for the final weekend after being sent off against Celta last time out.

Sergi Roberto, Philippe Coutinho, and Ansu Fati are all still injured, while Marc-Andre ter Stegen is recovering from knee surgery, thus Neto Moura will start in goal for the visitors.

Riqui Puig could start with De Jong and Sergio Busquets in the middle of the park, while Samuel Umtiti is anticipated to take Lenglet's spot at the back.

As things stand, this might be Messi's final game for Barcelona because he has yet to sign a new contract, but the Argentine could address his future over the weekend, according to reports.

Eibar possible starting lineup:
Dmitrovic; Cote, Oliveira, Arbilla, Correa; Gil, Diop, Atienza, Exposito; Enrich, Kike

Barcelona possible starting lineup:
Neto; Umtiti, Pique, Araujo; Dembele, Puig, Busquets, De Jong, Alba; Griezmann, Messi
