Barcelona repeated the custom in Ipurúa, winning its eighth consecutive game at Eibar (all disputed) and recovering sensations after two draws that had caused the shock around the Camp Nou. The leader won by 0-2 and stopped any debate. Although his game was far from the excellence that is supposed.
Valverde surprised, from the outset, not reserving anything and confirming that Tuesday’s game in London against Chelsea did not exist this Saturday. Despite the fact that Coutinho, the most expensive signing in the history of the club, and Semedo can not play the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 at Stamford Bridge, the Barça coach resolved to leave both on the bench and give reel to an eleven that, in good logic, will be the one who starts the match against Chelsea. A bestial effort that, from the outset, was difficult to explain.
But who could argue the decision of Valverde in seeking with the gala team a victory by the fast track, trying to sentence in the first moments, would be pledged and engaged in an unexpected duel. Eibar, undefeated in the last 4 games and had only lost one of the last 10, appeared on the field with an unlimited ambition. And Barça accused him.

He had already warned in the previous Barça coach of this character of the armored team … And his men did not give the impression of knowing how to get that pressure off of him. Two occasions of entry, with the leader almost locked in his area, suffering by combining and uncomfortable in the field as it was not remembered. Grouped based on speed and verticality by an Eibar grown and convinced of his options … Until he received the blow.

Barely over the first quarter of an hour, on a ball taken out on the run, Messi saw the start of Luis Suarez and threw a pass deep, satin and diagonal, which exceeded the local defensive line, reached the Uruguayan and ended up in the net , after this one dribbles the exit of the goal to mark to empty goal.
It fit with sobriety the blow the Eibar and did not know to take the step forward that Barca expected. Calmed in the field, more defensive than usual and looking to finish the match against, the leader did not offer what he expected, even though at times he could certainly sentence a game rival, although evidently inferior.

The discussion began to end at 66 minutes, when Fabián Orellana, dangerous in his attack and who crashed a ball in the crossbar, committed the stupidity of displacing the ball after a foul by Pape Diop. The referee interpreted, supposedly, lost time (?) And took out the yellow, second and that caused the expulsion.
It came down, then yes, the Eibar, who accused even more the expulsion somewhat later of the local coach, Mendilibar, for protesting a play by Suarez, very similar to Orellana’s, to finish the game like a wounded animal, with encouragement. but without a head
The afternoon closed with the 0-2 of Jordi Alba at 88 minutes that solved a victory dressed in suffering of the leader. He regained the path of victory in the league after two consecutive draws and will travel to London with tranquility in the body in terms of results.
