Eibar vs Alaves
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 4 November 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
Alaves continued their dream run last weekend when substitute Borja Baston bagged the 94th-minute winner to secure the third straight La Liga victory.
Babazorros showed a phenomenal fighting spirits to recover form conceding an early opener. The phenomenal form brought them up to the sky-high second place in the Primera Division standings.
Can Abelardo’s men keep it going and make it four wins on the spin on Sunday when they take on Eibar away at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua in the first game of the day?
The hosts have been nowhere near such shape so far in the season. They actually played hot and cold form the very first round.
Such a roller-coaster campaign is only enough for the 15th place after 10 rounds of the competition. Jose Mendillibar will have a tough task lifting team’s spirits after a tough 4-0 defeat to Celta Vigo in the previous round.
Eibar vs Alaves: Head-to-head
Eibar have a positive record in head to head matches against Babazorros.
The Gunsmiths won 16, drew 3 and lost 9 of 28 meetings with Alaves.
Only one of last eight head to head contests saw goals scored at both ends.
Teams snatched a single win apiece in the previous term of La Liga (both on the road).
Eibar vs Alaves: Prediction
The value has to be with Alaves who have been much more consistent throughout the season. Furthermore, Babazorros will have an extra day off after mid-week’s Copa del Rey fixtures. They drew 2-2 to Girona on Wednesday evening, while Eibar only played their cup tie on Thursday. It ended in yet another failure as Segunda Division outfit Sporting Gijon dispatched the Gunsmiths 2-0 on the home patch.
You can back the second-placed outfit not to lose at Ipurua at the odds of 1.75. Braver tipsters can even go with the clear away win at the 3.75 odds.
