Eibar vs Espanyol: Preview and Predictions

Eibar vs Espanyol
Spanish La Liga
Date: 3rd December 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).

Eibar escaped the danger zone with back-to-back wins in last two rounds and they will be looking to extend the hot run of form and keep the climb up the La Liga ladder this Sunday when they host Espanyol at Ipurua.

The Gunsmiths would overtake their counterparts at the 13th-place in case of a potential three-pointer here.

Eibar

Jose Mendillibar’s men were one of the most pleasant surprised of the last term of La Liga, but they opened the new campaign in a dreadful fashion.

Nonetheless, the crisis seems to be behind them as they’ve been pretty impressive in their showings against Real Betis (5-0) and Deportivo La Coruna (1-2 on the road) in last two weeks.

The Gunsmiths are out of Copa del Rey after losing 1-0 away at Celta in mid-week meaning they can now completely focus on their Primera Division ambitions.

Espanyol

The Budgerigars managed a narrow 3-2 win over Segunda Division opponent Tenerife to book their place in the last 16 round of Copa del Rey on Thursday evening.

They are hoping to make it a perfect week as they’ve previously defeated Getafe 1-0 at home in the last game of the previous Matchday on Monday.

Eibar vs Espanyol: Head to head

The teams have shared the spoils in both of their ties in the last term of La Liga.

They have two wins apiece coming into their seventh head to head tie. Five of previous six encounters between the two likes saw the BTTS option “come in”.

Eibar vs Espanyol: Prediction

The draw is indeed the most likable of the outcomes here given that Quique Sanchez Flores’ men have also seen a rise in their form in the recent weeks.

The best of the betting options would, however, be backing goals at both ends at the sky-high 1.95 odds.
