Barcelona came from 2-0 down to beat Eibar 4-2 on Sunday, although it wasn't enough to clinch the La Liga title. Here are the player ratings: 

Ter Stegen (6) Not at fault for either of the goals and not called into action a great deal. Showed confidence on the ball, even if it looked risky at times. 

Sergi Roberto (6) Played well before being taken off at half time with an injury. Won't play again this season as is suspended for the cup final.

Marlon (6) Made his Camp Nou debut and did not look nervous. Was a good partner for Umtiti and may have a place in the first team next season. 

Umtiti (6) With Pique out, he was the leader in the middle of defence and he did well. Will grow even more next season thanks to a brilliant debut campaign. 

Jordi Alba (7) Was almost like a left winger at times. Was impressive, although he was lucky to win a penalty when he went down in the box -- a penalty which Messi missed. 

Busquets (6) Was put under a lot of pressure by Eibar and sometimes struggled. 

Rakitic (4) Lacking in attack in defence. Eventually was taken off and replaced by Paco Alcacer. 

Iniesta (6) Had some good moments and almost scored twice, but was twice denied by good Yoel saves. 

Messi (6) Not one of his finest performance but still finished with two goals: one a penalty and the other a good solo effort. Missed a penalty as well, though, and also missed a sitter from two yards. 

Luis Suárez (5) A first half to forget, missing two one-on-ones. Showed character, though, and eventually got a goal, before missing a third one-on-one. 

Neymar (5) Lacked a final product but still played a key role in two goals. Hit the post which led to David Junca's own goal and won the penalty which led to Barça's third goal. 

Substitutes

André Gomes (4) Came on at right-back once again but struggled out of position. Could have done better for Eibar's second goal. 

Paco Alcácer (6) Came on at 2-2 and helped Barça get over the line, although missed the only chance which came his way.
