Eibar vs Real Betis
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 2 February 2020
Kick-off at 13:00 UK / 14:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
Eibar are unbeaten in h2h encounters at home for the past decade. With the hosts also on a two-match winning streak here, as we speak, Real Betis can rule out any hopes of picking up a maiden win this week.
Eibar vs Real Betis Match Preview
Eibar shared the spoils on the road with Celta Vigo last week after both teams failed to break the deadlock. Despite recording far fewer shots on target than their foes in that latter matchup, the hosts managed to keep their counterparts at bay throughout the ninety minutes and deservedly walked away with a point in the bag.
At the moment, the home team are unbeaten in their last two LaLiga fixtures and have stumbled just once in their previous five on the trot as well.
On the other hand, Real Betis had their hearts broken in their most recent clash with Getafe. The visitors kept the scores at 0-0 for the majority part of that matchup. However, they then went on to concede a late penalty in the dying minutes of regulation time, which Angel Rodriguez made no mistake in converting.
With twenty-seven points to their name, Real Betis are currently sitting twelfth on the ladder, sporting a four-point advantage above their opponents for the weekend.

Eibar vs Real Betis Prediction
First and foremost, Eibar have been showing signs of conviction in their recent clashes at home. Impressively, they have secure maximum points from their past two fixtures here, the most recent of which saw them pull off an impressive 2-0 win over the mighty Atletico Madrid.
In sharp contrast, Real Betis have not emerged victoriously on the road since their 2-1 win over Mallorca back in November. It is also worth mentioning that the aforementioned win is their only taste of success away from home in the top flight this season.
To make matters worse, the guests have been at the losing end in each of their last three visits here. As such, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Eibar in this one.
Be that as it may, Real Betis have adamantly salvaged a point in four of their outings so far. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup had also ended in a tie, it will be safer to back a double chance this weekend.
Furthermore, to be frank, the visitors have not gone down with a fight on the road. They have found the back of the net in all but one of their past four outings, and have racked up a total of nine goals away from home so far.
Meanwhile, Eibar have conceded seven goals from their last five fixtures here alone. Considering that half of their previous four h2h meetings at this stadium have also witnessed both teams contribute to the scorecards, expect neither to keep a clean sheet intact come Sunday.
