Eibar vs Celta Vigo: Preview and Predictions

Eibar vs Celta Vigo
Copa del Rey
Date: 25th October 2017
Kick off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).

Eibar are struggling badly to find goals in the new term of La Liga and they will come into the Copa del Rey tie with Celta Vigo having failed to find the back of the net in four straight league outings.


Truth be told, the hosts could have not hoped for big things on Sunday when they traveled to the capital to take on the reigning Primera Division champions Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu (3-0 defeat).

The poor attacking form has led the Gunsmiths to a horrendous run Of four losses and a draw in last five fixtures and Mendilibar’s job could well be on the line in case of the potential cup failure against The Celts.

Celta have also opened the new campaign in a rather slow style under the new manager Urzue, but they bounced back in the recent weeks to climb up to the top half of the La Liga table.

Urzue can be especially happy with the improvements in the final third as the team bagged 12 goals in three league matches prior to the last weekend’s defeat to Atletico Madrid (0-1) at Balaidos.

Eibar vs Celta Vigo: Head to head

The Gunsmiths have been a tricky opponent for Celta over the years, but the Celts managed to end the negative tradition with a demolishing 0_4 victory at Ipurua when the teams took on each other exactly a month ago in the league outing.
