Eibar vs Espanyol Prediction & Match Preview

Eibar vs Espanyol
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Monday, 21st January 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).

The Budgerigars will be fresh and energized on top of their excellent win they secured against Villarreal in the Copa del Rey. The Yellow Submarines had made it their life’s mission to get into the quarterfinals of the domestic cup, but the eternal rivals of Barcelona managed to trump that and put themselves amongst the last eight of the competition.

The Gunsmiths had a good chance to gun for a top-half finish, based on their early performances in the season. But their aim has been off the mark in the last weeks. The run of three consecutive draws brought them back to earth after they secured a great win against the current European Champions Real Madrid.

Fans will be cheering them on to get back to their winning ways.

Eibar vs Espanyol Prediction

Things are getting heated for a goal-fest as a team on high-octane team morale takes on a team hungry to get back to their form. It’s true the hosts had to go through three league draws, but the thing to keep in mind is that Los Armeros scored a total of seven goals in these three ties.

They have managed to find the back of the net in 13 of their last 14 attempts at home and scored an impressive 12 goals in their last six.

Joan Sicilia’s men scored a combined seven goals in their last three ties, and an astonishing five goals in their two legs against Villarreal. When the draw for the Copa was announced, not many expected such a result from the White and Blue.

The Gunsmiths will try to take inspiration from the 3-0 loss that they inflicted on Los Blancos a few weeks back, and try to build from there.

Expect both sides to find goals and at least a goal in the first 45 minutes.
