Eibar vs Deportivo La Coruna
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 28th January 2017
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua, Eibar.
Eibar had a series of super difficult fixtures over the last couple of weeks which were the main reason for the drop in the form. However, Jose Luis Mendilibar can still be more than happy with the amazing job he has done with the team so far in the season. Los Armeros managed to fix the impression and boost up the confidence a bit after losing consecutive games to Atletico Madrid and Barcelona with the 0-7 goals difference.
Even though Mendilibar rested some of his key players in the second leg of Copa del Rey against Atleti, the team managed to pull out a 2-2 draw on Wednesday evening. Pedro Leon came on as a substitute to play the final 20 minutes of the game and managed to find the net to prove a decent shape. He is the team’s leading goal scorer with six goals in Primera Division and he should be your number one call to score anytime during the game at 12/5.
Deportivo La Coruna are undefeated in last seven games, but five of them ended in a draw which is why they are still only six points away from the danger zone. Gaizka Garitani’s men managed to pull out a 1-1 draw against Las Palmas last Monday thanks to Florin Andone who came out with the equalizer 20 minutes from time. Depor are yet to celebrate the first win on the road in this season.
Eibar vs Deportivo La Coruna: Head-to-Head Stats

Eibar vs Deportivo La Coruna: Prediction
Eibar are 11/10 to pick up the second win in 8th H2H clash with Deportivo. They are certainly favourites because Depor have been poor away from home this season, but we would not advise any high stakes bets since the visitors are undefeated in last seven games in all competitions. We see a better value in chasing the draw here at 9/4 odds.
