Eibar vs Girona
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 3 February 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
Eibar dropped a two-goal cushion last Saturday when they only drew 2-2 away at Leganes. First half goals from Kike and Joan Jordan were thus only enough for one points which, however, kept the Gunsmiths in the top half of the standings.
Nevertheless, the situation is very interesting in Primera Division bottom half as tenth-placed Eibar still have to work hard to avoid the relegation scrap. They are just five points adrift of the red zone and a potential failure here could compromise their top flight status.
Jose Mendilibar can be satisfied with his men’s attacking displays in recent outings. Eibar grew in form lately and they notched a fine five-goal tally in last two league outings (a 3-0 win over Espanyol and a 2-2 draw away at Leganes). Midfielder Joan Jordan is the man to look after as he delivered an assist and a goal eight days ago at Butarque.
Eibar vs Girona: Head-to-head
This will only be the eighth head to head encounter between Eibar and Girona.
The hosts won three, drew two and lost two of past seven meetings with Blanquivermell.
Each of last four head to head affairs saw the BTTS option “coming in”.
Eibar vs Girona: Prediction
Girona started the season in a fantastic fashion, but their form saw an enormous downfall in recent months. They were just not capable of keeping things quiet at the back lately. They shipped two or more goals in all of last four games in all competitions and they will come into this winless in past 11 matches.
Given Eibar’s improved attacking form in the last couple of weeks, we have reasons to expect the hosts to score at least two goals for the third consecutive time on Sunday evening. BTTS trend from H2H games should also likely be continued. You can back goals at both ends at the sky-high 1.95 odds here.
