Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Eibar

Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's La Liga clash with Eibar.

Barcelona will be looking for their fourth La Liga victory in a row when they welcome Eibar to Camp Nou on February 22.

The Spanish champions made it three straight league successes with a 2-1 win over Getafe on Saturday afternoon.

Quique Setien's side will be in Champions League last-16 action against Napoli later this month but their focus, for now, will still be on La Liga as they attempt to chase down leaders Real Madrid.

The Catalan giants have only lost once in Spain's top flight since the beginning of November and will fancy their chances of overcoming a struggling Eibar on Saturday.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Barca's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the match.
