Eibar vs Deportivo Alaves
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 15 March 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar)
Eibar have struggled for points since early March and they host Deportivo Alaves for their Matchday 32 clash on Sunday morning hoping to end a five-game winless streak, as they sit big seven points behind La Liga’s top 6 after 31 games played. They have been a tougher side at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua and Mendilibar’s men come desperate to show off such a character once again.
Los Armeros have suffered losses to Barcelona and Real Madrid in their last six home outings but they have been very good if we exclude clashes against big guns, beating Sevilla and Villarreal in the process and holding off Malaga and Real Sociedad along the way. Alaves, on the other hand, just returned to the winning ways with a 2-0 win over Getafe last week and they hope to build on the performance but they have been far from impressive on the road!
Abelardo’s men have secured just one win in their last eight trips away from home and that sure looks less reassuring for the travelling fans, as Alaves netted just two goals in their last four away games. They have been putting better performances at the back recently but they could have to do more to snatch any points in Eibar.
