Football is back after the international break. While the Competition Committee have postponed Barcelona's game against Real Madrid next weekend, Ernesto Valverde's side are in action on Saturday against Eibar. 

With Gerard Pique suspended, Valverde brings Samuel Umtiti into the defence. The Frenchman is making his first competitive appearance for Barça in five months. He's paired with Clement Lenglet, with Jean Clair Todibo dropping out. 

Elsewhere, Jordi Alba comes back in at left-back following an injury, with Sergi Roberto preferred to Nelson Semedo at right-back. 

The rest of the team is as expected. Messi and Suarez are joined by Griezmann in attack, while Busquets, De Jong and Arthur make up the midfield. 


  • Eibar: Dmitrovic; De Blasis, Oliveira, Arbilla, Cote; Pedro León, Diop, Sergio Álvarez, Orellana; Charles and Sergi Enrich..
  • FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Umtiti, Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Sergio Busquets, De Jong, Arthur; Messi, Luis Suárez and Griezmann.
