Alaves vs Eibar
Spain – La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza.
Both teams are struggling at the moment to keep the relegation cut-off at bay. However, tough schedules have put them dangerously close to it, and at present, the squads are desperate for points.
Into this scenario, add the weak defenses from both sides, and we almost have a perfect mix for a goal-fest.
Moreover, recent h2h encounters have also had goals in plenty.
In regards to the result of the clash though, the Gunsmiths have a slight advantage. They are comparatively in much better form than that of their counterparts.
In fact, El Glorioso are even struggling at home to post the three points once in a while, whereas their opposite number have been pretty consistent even on the road.
For the reasons, expect Eibar to post at least one point on the board this Wednesday.
Alaves vs Eibar: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Pablo Machin’s men had recorded a 2-1 win at home the last time these two teams locked horns.
- They are on a two-match winning run, and are on a scoring streak of six fixtures.
- Jose Mendilibar’s men had registered 11 of the former 18 overall wins.
- Three of the previous four match-ups had goals from both teams, and three of the past six encounters had three or more goals.
Alaves vs Eibar: Prediction
El Glorioso lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Celta Vigo. In the meantime, the Gunsmiths lost 1-3 at home against Real Madrid.
Going on, Machin’s men were winless in 29 of their preceding 34 games, and they have a total of just one win at home since June of 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts have lost just once in their past seven game weeks, and this sole loss had come against reigning champions – Real Madrid.
On the road, they are also on an unbeaten run since September, and they have lost just one of such fixtures all through the season – against the fourth-placed Villarreal.
As such, expect Eibar to have the upper hand this Wednesday.
However, note that El Glorioso are on a two-match winning run in h2h meetings, scoring two or more goals on both occasions, and they are also on a six-fixture scoring streak in such meetings.
Moreover, they are also desperate to put an end to their dismal run, and will consider the Gunsmiths the perfect rival to record a win against, since they are from the bottom-most tier of the table too.
As such, expect goals to come from both sides of the Estadio Mendizorrotza pitch.
