Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 27 August, 2016,
Kick-off: 17:15 UK.
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
Eibar face Valencia at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua on Saturday evening, as both teams aim for their first win of the new season.
Eibar failed to convert their chances last week, as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat against Deportivo La Coruna. They created a lot of goal scoring opportunities more than Deportivo, but lacked the zeal to score. This suggest that Keko depaturethis summer have dealt a blow on them, they need to search for a goal poacher to survi this season.
Valencia started the season with a poor performance on Monday, they were shockingly beaten 4-2 at home by Las Palmas. Valencia opened the score 6 minutes into the game, but was shocked when Palmas replied with 3 goals in 15 minutes. Goals from M. livaja, Jonathan Veira and Kevin Boateng did the trick. Santi Mina pulled one back gave Valencia hope with his 2nd goal of the game, but Livaja’s 2nd goal in 88 minutes killed off the game. They hope for a win in this game to kick off their campaign.
