It was straight back to work for FC Barcelona on Friday morning, a mere twelve hours after having won at Real Sociedad (highlights below), 1–0, in the Copa del to halt a decade-long victory drought at Anoeta.
The triumph was a grueling affair, however, and Barça wasted no time getting back out onto the training pitch Friday with two objectives in mind — recover from Thursday night’s match and begin preparing for Sunday’s league tilt, which will take the Catalans back to the Basque Country for an 8.45pm CET match at Eibar.
Barça will go into Sunday night’s game riding a three-game winning streak. Their aim at Eibar’s Ipurua Municipal Stadium is simple — win the game and pick up three more points in the race for the league crown.
Barça have won their two previous visits to Ipurua, both coming during the Luis Enrique era. The following highlights are from last season's 4–0 win.
