Barcelona coach Koeman to turn to B starlets for Eibar finale

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman is weighing up giving their B players a chance in the final LaLiga game of the season

Barca still have to play Eibar on Saturday and Ronald Koeman may turn to Barca B to fill out his squad.

Javi Garcia Pimienta's players were eliminated from the play-offs after a great season this weekend by UCAM Murcia. The Blaugrana B will keep training until the end of the season though.

Koeman may use Alex Collado, Konrad de la Fuente, Nico Gonzalez, Inaki Pena, Tebas and Arnau Comas in the game, having called them into his squad before at tims this season.

Eibar are already relegated so have nothing at stake either. There is a chance that Barca could come fourth, if they lose and Sevilla win. With the team's lack of ambition against Celta it would be interesting to see if Koeman gives the B team youngsters a chance now.
