Eibar vs Real Valladolid Prediction & Match Preview

Eibar vs Real Valladolid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 17th March 2019
Kick-off at 11.00 UK/ 12.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).

Eibar is just five points off the playoff spots, and ever since Real Madrid was toppled from their European throne, teams believe that they can get away with stealing their entry into the next year’s Champions League too. While Eibar is a long way from Europe’s premier competition, the Europa is within grasp, and they will go for it.

Valladolid is playing with fire right now. They are just a point and a spot away from the relegation line, and recent results have been extremely negative. The team also holds the distinction for having scored the least number of goals of all the teams in the La Liga. They remain the only side that was unable to record an average of at least one goal per match, so far.

Eibar vs Real Valladolid Prediction

Eibar is just five points away from a European spot, and with their future in the league practically secured for next season, they have nothing to lose, and will definitely gun for the top-six spots. The next game is a very good opportunity to make the moves for that. They are at home, and welcome a team that is fighting relegation, as well as, is going through one of the most terrible forms of any squad in the competition.

Moreover, Eibar is unbeaten in their last 11 home-ties and scored two or more goals in seven of their last ten matches at home. Real, on the other hand, lost their last four away games in a row, and is winless in their last seven. They failed to score in six of their last ten road trips.

Additionally, they have scored the least number of goals in La Liga so far, and the fewest on the road as well. And finally, they have managed just a single away win this season in the league.

Expect the hosts to dominate right from the beginning, and take the three points.
