Eibar vs Getafe
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: Estdio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
Getafe backed up the home win over Espanyol by shocking Valencia 1-2 at Mestalla in mid-week’s round. It was Loic Remy who offered the best performance in Getafe’s shirt since joining from Las Palmas this winter. The Frenchman bagged a brace on Wednesday and he will no doubts be the man to look after on Saturday as well when Azulones travel to Estadio Municipal de Ipurua to take on Eibar.
The gunsmiths will also come into the match high on confidence after beating Espanyol 0-1 at RCDE Stadium. The win will instil some confidence into Mendillibar’s group of player who previously lost four and drew one of five league outings. Such a horrendous streak moved Eibar away from the battle for the European spots next term. Lomban’s goal at RCDE Stadium was team’s first in four matches. Knowing that Getafe were pretty tough to break down in the most recent weeks, we could see troubles for the hosts to create in the final third here.
Eibar vs Getafe: Head-to-head
As many as 7 of 15 head to head encounters ended without a winner.

Three of last four head to head ties saw no winner.
Only one of last four H2H games produced three or more goals.
Eibar vs Getafe: Prediction
The head to head stats suggest a close encounter with one or none goals to make the difference. This is exactly what team’s forms predict and we just have to try with the draw at 3.20 odds. This should not really be a high-scoring contest given that both teams have been much better defensively of late, meaning that the Under 2.5 goals FT looks to be the banker bet at 1.57 odds.
Under some other circumstances, we would probably go with in-form Loic Remy to score any time after his magnificent showing at Mestalla, but backing a goalscorer in a match where you expect less than three goals to be scored is not quite a smart idea you’ll agree.
