Eibar vs Elche
Spanish La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 30 September 2020
Kick-off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
The teams had last met in 2015 and parted ways with Elche grabbing an away win in La Liga. Five years down the road, they will be put together for a similar fixture, with Eibar having more experience in the top tier campaign.
Elche was promoted to the league from Segunda Division last season, and they have opened their schedule this term with a 0-3 loss at home against Real Sociedad. The loss would have affected the morale of the players, and Jorge Almiron will have work to do in picking up his team from that loss.
Eibar is a stronger team, but not the brightest around. They were at the 14th spot last season in the table closer to the bottom of the table. They are on a winless streak in the campaign after three appearances, following a 1-2 loss at home against Bilbao in the schedule.
Eibar vs Elche Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only one of their last five clashes has ended in a draw.
- The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
- Their previous encounter gave a 0-1 away win for Elche.
- Both teams have scored in only one of the recent four games.
- Elche has won in three of their past four visits since 2005.
Eibar vs Elche Prediction
Elche was comparatively successful in their h2h meetings in the last decade until 2015. This streak of better winning rate was held by the visitor when these two sides were playing in the second tier together and one season in the La Liga.
However, Eibar has changed a lot since their last meeting and consecutive five years in La Liga have made Los Armeros a stronger side to face in the middle. Even though they are weaker in the overall top tier mix, the host has a good chance against the promoted side.
With the home team likely to be in control, we can back the home win in full-time as a possible result in ninety minutes at Eibar. Besides, we can also back the host to win either half of the game with their ground advantage and league experience over the years.
Furthermore, the match is sizing to be a tight encounter since the favorites to win are on a winless run in the campaign as of late. That’s why the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably serve the purpose in the encounter from the goals area.
