Espanyol vs Eibar
Spain – Primera Liga
Date: Tuesday, 25 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: RCDE Stadium (Cornella de Llobregat).
Espanyol and Eibar are going to open the action in the 6th round of the Spanish Primera Liga with a Tuesday evening clash.
Home side is enjoying a solid start of the season as they are positioned in the top half of the table. From the first five rounds, Espanyol managed to snatch seven points in pretty tight clashes.
Javi Lopez and the lads are playing very well in the back as they’ve allowed just four goals so far, however their forwards could have been a bit more productive.
The hosts haven’t allowed a single point to their visitors this season and managed to keep the clean sheet in their both home victories. If they continue playing like this, Espanyol are going to be safe from the relegation.
Eibar have the same start as their rivals and after two opening defeats they managed to tie three matches without losing. They’ve been a bit more insecure in the back, while their attacking record is the same as Espanyol’s.
Mendilibar’s side hasn’t been too convincing when playing away from home as they’ve managed to snatch just a point. The visitors had a decent last season and they might have the repetition in the current one as well.
Espanyol vs Eibar: Head-to-head
- Eibar haven’t lost to their rivals in the last four occasions and they are also enjoying a streak of two straight victories against Espanyol.
