Barcelona are back to winning ways ahead of their crunch Champions League clash against Chelsea.

The Catalan giants opened up a 10-point lead at the top of the La Liga standings thanks to a hard-earned 2-0 win against Eibar at the Estadio Ipurua on Saturday.

Before Saturday's outing, Barcelona had played out back-to-back draws but they managed to return to winning ways thanks to goals from Luis Suarez and Jordi Alba in either half.

Victory for Barca, made easier following the sending-off of Fabian Orellana 66 minutes in, also ensures that they have equalled their club-record run of games unbeaten in the Spanish top flight, matching the 31 set by Pep Guardiola's class of 2011.

Chelsea host Barcelona at Stamford Bridge with kick-off scheduled for 8.45pm on Tuesday, February 20.
