Granada vs Eibar Prediction, Tips & Match Preview

Granada vs Eibar
Spain La Liga
Date: Thursday, 22 April 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes.

Eibar will be desperate to try and catch one of their last trains in the battle for avoiding the relegation on Thursday evening when they travel to Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes to take on top-half Granada.

The Los Armeros will enter the match in the lowest of spirits after suffering a devastating 5-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid on Sunday afternoon at Estadio Wanda Metropiltano. It was the third straight loss for Mendillibar’s troops who are four points shy of the safe zone with seven games left to play.

The hosts are in a completely opposite situation. They do not have anything to play for in the remaining part of the season.

The Nazaries sit at a comfortable 8th place in La Liga standings. They have had a great campaign in UEFA Europa League where the team have just recently got eliminated by Manchester United in the quarterfinal of the competition.

Granada vs Eibar Head-to-head

  • Eibar will rely on the head to head tradition as they seem to love to play against Nazaries.
  • Los Armeros won seven and drew two of nine clashes against Granada who are still waiting on their maiden victory in this match-up.
  • Eibar took a 2-0 win when the teams last locked horns in early-January this year at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua.

Granada vs Eibar Prediction

The match is much more important to the visitors. However, there is really not much to suggest a pleasant evening for Mendillibar and his troops here, aside from the head to head history. Los Armeros are winless in the last 15 games in all competitions. They lost five and drew one of the last six league outings on the road, scoring only two goals in the process.

On the other side, Granada have been on a four-win streak on the home court before losing the last two games there to the likes of Villarreal (0-3 in La Liga) and Manchester United (0-2 in Europa League). Since his men are out of the continental competition, we expect Diego Martinez to field a strong line-up here.

In such circumstances, Granada have to be considered favourites. We will back them to win the match at the odds of 2.37. The alternative pick would be Granada to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.62.

Granada vs Eibar Bet Tips

  • Granada to win @ 2.37
  • Granada to keep a clean sheet @ 2.62.
