Sergio Ramos didn’t play the last La Liga fixture of this season. He still hasn’t recovered from his knee injury but started as a substitute against Villarreal.

Toni Kroos was also out because of the COVID-19 he got after getting in touch with an infected person.

Barcelona were already out of the title race after they faced a frustrating 1-2 defeat against Celta Vigo in their last match.

But in the end, Barca finished their campaign with a 1-0 victory over Eibar. Antoine Griezmann was the only goalscorer in the match.

Leo Messi had to take an early leave because of the upcoming Copa America tournament, so he wasn’t present at Cam Nou to play the game.
