Eibar vs Levante Match Preview
Eibar succumbed to their largest defeat of the season last week when they squared up against the Catalans at Camp Nou. The hosts were at the receiving end of no less than five unanswered goals by the end of the ninety minutes, subsequently marking their second defeat in a row as well.
Miserably, the home team are now without a win in their last five games across various competitions. With just twenty-four points to their name, Eibar are currently sitting sixteenth on the ladder, two points shy of the dreaded relegation zone.
On the other hand, Levante pulled off a stunning 1-0 win over Real Madrid in their most recent clash at home. Despite recording far fewer shots at goal than their foes in that clash, the visitors were a lot more clinical in their efforts and deservedly walked away with all three points in the bag.
At the moment, Levante are tenth in the table with an eight-point cushion over their foes for the week. As such, the guests will have to brace themselves for a tough set of ninety minutes, as Eibar will be desperate to stay clear of the bottom three.
Eibar vs Levante Prediction
Eibar have been showing signs of promise in their clashes at home as of late. Impressively, the hosts are unbeaten in their past three games here, garnering seven points from a possible nine.
In sharp contrast, Levante have been at the losing end in each of their last four outings in the league. To make matters worse, ten of the thirteen defeats for the visitors so far have come from their clashes on the road.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have not come out on top in any of their past twelve visits to this stadium. Hence, Eibar are the favorites to pick up all three points in this one.
Be that as it may, five of their previous six meetings with each other here have ended as a tie. Taking into account that both teams also salvaged a point in the reverse fixture of this clash, back a draw no bet, just to be on the safer side.
Furthermore, Levante have had their scoring boots on in their outings this term. In fact, despite the poor string of results, they have found the back of the net thirteen times on the road.
Meanwhile, Eibar have not been consistent in keeping their opponents at bay here. Disappointingly, they have conceded eight goals from their six games at home.
Considering that all but one of their past four h2h meetings at this stadium have also witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet together, expect neither side to keep a clean sheet intact this weekend.
