Barcelona must beat Eibar at Camp Nou on 21 May to have any chance of retaining the La Liga title.

Where to watch

Kick-off is set for 7pm BST. The game is not scheduled for live broadcast in the UK.


Neymar scored a hat-trick as Barcelona swept aside Las Palmas 4-1 on 14 May and ensured that the La Liga title race would go into the final weekend. The Catalan giants will retain the title if they beat Eibar and Real Madrid lose at Malaga.

Gerard Pique is available after missing the win over Las Palmas with a stomach bug.

Eibar will climb two spots to finish eighth in La Liga if they beat Barcelona at Camp Nou. The Basque club have lost their last five meetings with Barcelona.

Nano and Fran Rico are sidelined through injury for the visitors.

What managers say

Luis Enrique: "I have to focus on the Eibar game, but of course I will have an eye on the Madrid score, too. We don't depend on ourselves, but we will fight until the end. The only thing we can do is get three points. If that's not enough, we will congratulate the champions. It's very different to previous final days, when we did depend on ourselves. This time we don't, which shows we have not done things quite as well as in past seasons – but it also shows what a fine line there is between success and failure." [via ESPN]

Jose Luis Mendilibar: "Our thinking is to play our game, not to do weird things. We do not have the right to be eighth, because we have a very difficult game, we face a very difficult match at the Camp Nou, but we will try to win. Not finishing eighth would not be a failure. It is nicer to finish eighth than tenth, but getting two places down or up does not mean anything as it has been a good season." [via La Vanguardia]
