Claudio Bravo (7): Made one early save from Ander Capa and another from Keko Gontan, only for Borja Baston to score from the rebound. Another couple of contributions after the break helped omit a sense of security — or at least more than in recent weeks.
Dani Alves (6): Produced some lovely, deep crosses in the first half, one which Suarez volleyed into the side netting early on and another which led to a Neymar penalty appeal. However, was sloppy in possession in the lead up to a Keko Gontan chance at 1-1.
Marc Bartra (6): Dallied on the ball in the build-up to Borja Baston’s opening goal, but made amends when he blocked Keko Gontan’s effort on the line. Was replaced by Mathieu less than 10 minutes into the second half.
Gerard Pique (7): A fairly assured performance from a man who has blown hot and cold this season.
Jordi Alba (6): A quite game by his standards. With Neymar in front of him stealing the limelight, Alba set about producing an industrious performance, if not an exhilarating one.
Javier Mascherano (5): Not his finest performance in a Barcelona shirt and to top things off he was sent off for dissent in the second half. That will lead to s suspension Luis Enrique could do without at the moment.
Sergio Busquets (7): With Mascherano in midfield, he was able to push slightly higher up the pitch. His pass to Sandro led to Suarez’s opener and another pass to Sandro should have seen the Canary Islander score.
Ivan Rakitic (5): Failed to kick on from his double in Belarus, producing another sub-par performance here against the Basque side. Was booked for a late challenge in the second half, which summer up his evening.
Sandro Ramirez (6): Continuing the rotation game with Munir, the 20-year-old’s deft first time pass created Suarez’s first goal. Missed a chance of his own later on in the first half, before being taken off for Munir at the beginning of the second period.
Luis Suarez (9): Exactly 365 days after making his Barcelona debut, Suarez was the hero with a hat-trick as his side fought back from a goal down against Eibar. He struck the side netting with a difficult early chance, before heading home from close range after good play by Busquets and Sandro. Neymar created his next two goals and the execution on both was top class, particualrly the latter which sealed the points.
Neymar (9): The Brazilian’s direct and pacy running, once again, caused Eibar problems all night. Didn’t get the goal his performance deserved, but created two of Suarez’s three — he’s now either scored or assisted nine of his side’s last 10 goals.
Jeremy Mathieu (7): Really impressive cameo from the French defender. Made three big tackles and went on one phenomenal run, breezing past three Eibar players, only to be let down by his final ball.
Munir El Haddadi (6): A couple of useful runs as a second half substitute, but perhaps should have known when to pass the ball at times.
