Barcelona v Eibar: Confirmed Starting Line-ups – Arda Turan replaces Iniesta

Barcelona v Sporting

Barcelona will be hoping to make history for the second week running by extending their unbeaten run to a record 36 games against Eibar today.

Luis Enrique has decided to make a few rotations to the side that crushed Rayo Vallecano 5-1 mid-week.

Turkish international star Arda Turan starts for Barcelona but will be playing on the left side of midfield ahead of Iniesta who was rested for the Eibar clash.

Turan scored his first goal since joining Barca over the summer against Rayo taking his overall tally to three assists and one goal.

Barca have now won all 13 games in which the bearded winger has featured since making his debut against rivals Espanyol in the Spanish Cup back in January.
