Villarreal witnessed the crowning of the Champions after the loss in their last match. However, they have fixed their trip to Europe and will aim to finish the season with a home win in the clash with Eibar.
Villarreal vs Eibar Match preview
The 1-2 loss on the road against Real Madrid in the last match in the campaign saw Villarreal registering their third loss within the recent five fixtures.
Since all three losses have come against sides above them in the table except Sociedad, the host still displays a chance to win against Eibar below them in the league table.
Eibar will visit after two consecutive wins in their schedule, following a 3-1 win at home against Real Valladolid in their previous league clash.
The visitor will have the advantage of winning the reverse fixture this season at home against the Yellow Submarines with a 2-1 scoreline.
Now that the host is in the driving seat, Javier Calleja will have time to return the favor. Their performance against Real Madrid put the latter in trouble late in the second half.
Playing after such a big fight will probably give a slight edge for the host in the match.

Villarreal vs Eibar Prediction
Villarreal secured the Europa League spot despite their last two losses in the schedule. Most of their recent losses have come against the top part teams in the table and we can expect the host to perform well against Eibar trailing by 15 points to them.
Eibar is on an unbeaten streak in the campaign lately, mostly coming against teams below them in the table and hence, it will be a tough fight for the visitors against a stronger side. Besides, the host enjoys the home ground advantage in the encounter.
Having a poor away form in the league will hold back the visitors, and the home win in full-time will be the probable result in the match. At 1.50 odds, the tip for Villarreal to win will probably be the best bet in the encounter for the punters to get decent returns.
The Yellow Submarine broke the champion’s defense in the last match, and their overall scoring average is close to 2 goals per match in the campaign this season. The tip for under 3.5 goals with 1.44 odds will thus be a suitable option for the ninety minutes.
