Espanyol vs Eibar
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 12 July 2020
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: RCDE Stadium (Barcelona).
Espanyol is currently the punching bag of the campaign for other teams in the table and Eibar will probably make use of this opportunity to turn into winning ways again.
Espanyol vs Eibar Match preview
Espanyol is on a six-game losing streak in the campaign with 4 clean sheet losses in it. They have scored only 5 goals in their last 10 matches and it shows the worn-out sharpness of their attacks.
They paid a visit to Barcelona in their last match to take a 1-0 defeat in their schedule.
The Periquitos had an unbeaten streak in the league before lockdown, and after the opening win post lockdown, they have lost three consecutive attempts at home.
Eibar is not at their best but two losses within the last seven clashes will be always better than the losing streak offered by the home team.
They shared the spoils at home with Leganes in a goalless encounter last time out.
Los Armeros haven’t been that successful on the road, but just one loss in their recent three tours will be comforting enough to face the host in such terrible form in the league.
Espanyol vs Eibar Head-to-head (h2h)

Espanyol vs Eibar Prediction
Espanyol is a sure contender for relegation this season, and the change of manager hasn’t aided them in the league as they expected it to be.
Trailing on such a losing streak in their schedule, the host will not enjoy the ground advantage in the game.
Eibar has a slightly better run in the league with a 12 point lead over the host in the table. They have a comforting away form, strong enough to face the Periquitos in the match.
The safest option for the punters will be a double chance favoring Eibar with 1.40 odds to yield decent returns.
In their reverse fixture, Espanyol had won in their visit with a 1-2 scoreline. Their recent two meetings have seen them combine to produce at least 3 goals in each.
So, the tip for over 1.5 goals with 1.44 odds will be a suitable option for the ninety minutes.
