Granada vs Eibar
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 11 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 17:15 UK
Venue: Mestalla, Valencia.
Granada are looking for the first win of the season after managing a draw from their two fixtures so far. After a hard earned 1-1 home draw against Villarreal, Granada were thrashed 5-1 by the impressive Las Palmas at the Gran Canaria. The main problem for Granada is that they have almost a new squad. They were one of the busiest teams in the transfer market this summer adding at least 15 new players to their ranks. Paco Jemez is a fairly good coach, but they won’t be read as a team before Christmas.
Eibar were defeated 2-1 by Deportivo on the match day one of the season. And they bounced back with a narrow 1-0 win at home against a sorry Valencia. They were 14th in the league last season and are pre-season relegation favourites along with Granada. But Jose Luis Mendilibar will be eager to add another win to their tally, especially when facing a team that haven’t defeat them in 4 meetings.
Granada vs Eibar: Head-to-Head
Eibar are undefeated in the four meetings against Granada with 2 wins and draws. Both wins have come in the two meetings of last season, 5-1 at home and 3-1 at Granada.
Granada vs Eibar: Prediction
Eibar are strong favourites to win here as they will be confident after the 1-0 win against Valencia in their last fixture. Moreover they have defeated Granada on both fixtures last season by a healthy margin. While Granada are yet to gel together as a team and they might end up losing here.
Both coaches are attacking minded and therefore there will be no scarcity of goals. So over 2.5 goals and both teams to score can be confidently backed. I also recommend to avoid betting on a full time result in this match.
