FULL-TIME, Eibar 0-1 Barcelona: Barça’s season ends with a bad performance and a win they didn’t really deserve, but third place is officially guaranteed in what probably was Ronald Koeman’s last game in charge. At least some good news.
WELCOME TO THE IPURUA MUNICIPAL STADIUM!!! The tiny, cozy home of SD Eibar will sadly host a La Liga match for the last time in at least a year as the relegated side from the Basque Country welcome Barcelona for the season finale. Barça come into this one needing a point to clinch third place, with Lionel Messi given a day off to start his holidays early. This should be a good one, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action for the last time this season. LET’S LIVE BLOG!!!

Matchday Thread Rules
We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:
Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.
Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
