Eibar vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 29 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
Sevilla are flying high coming into the weekend’s fixture against Eibar. Los Rojiblancos picked up three subsequent wins in a phenomenal fashion, beating all of their respective rivals by three or more goals difference in the process.
The thread started on the opening ay of the Europa League group phase when Pablo Machin’s men demolished Belgian giants Standard Liege 5-1 at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Thesy backed it up with a 2-6 victory over Levante on the road, while the streak was completed with a powerful 3-0 victory over the Champions League winners Real Madrid on Wednesday evening.
Can the Andalusians keep such stellar form going and see off Eibar to put more pressure on the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid at the very top of the Primera Division standings?
Eibar vs Sevilla: Head-to-head
Sevilla have a positive head to head record against the Gunsmiths, but their fans will still remember the painful 5-1 defeat Los Rojiblancos suffered in the previous visit to Ipurua in early-February.

Eibar vs Sevilla: Prediction
The gunsmiths are playing hot and cold at the start of the season. They sit 12th with seven points from six matches, but will come into this low on confidence after failing to find the back of the net in a 1-0 loss to Espanyol on Tuesday at RCDE Stadium.
Their defense will be under a huge pressure here given Sevilla’s attacking form. Wissam Ben Yedder and Andree Silva were thriving in the final third in recent fixtures.
The French forward notched six goals in last three games, while Andre Silva took his league tally to impressive six by completing a brace against Real Madrid on Wednesday.
We just have no other option but to go for the away win here, paid at the 2.37 odds. You can alternatively back Los Rojinlancos to net two or more goals at the odds of 2.20.
