Villarreal vs Eibar Prediction
Villarreal will eye for their first win this season when they host Eibar. Their chances are high since the visitor was 18 points behind them in the table last season of the La Liga campaign. Besides, the host enjoys the home ground advantage in the game.
The host has started with a draw, but they had only 6 draws in their 38 appearances last term in the league. So, we can expect them to wither-off their winless trend soon in the campaign. That’s why the home win in full-time is probably the best bet in the clash.
Furthermore, both the teams have been a little shy in scoring goals when they meet. Only one of their last six meetings saw both teams score. And with the Yellow Submarines as the host, only two of their recent five h2h clashes have produced over 3 goals in a match.
With those stats, the tip for under 3.5 goals in the encounter will probably serve as a suitable option for the punters to yield decent returns. Another reason to back that scoreline is because Eibar had an average close to 1.0 goal last season while the host hardly reached 2.0 goals per match overall.
