Kick-Off 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villarreal).

Villarreal are searching for salvation points on Sunday when they play host to Eibar in the last home fixture of the season.

The Yellow Submarine are just three points above the danger area with two games left to play and they will no doubts be highly motivated to claim the spoils in this penultimate round affair against mid-table Eibar to avoid unpleasant situations coming into next weekend’s final round of the season and clash against Champions League hopefuls Getafe away at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

The hosts will be the more motivated side, but the lack of pressure suited Eibar very well lately. The Gunsmiths celebrated back-to-back 1-0 wins over the likes of Valencia and Real Betis in past two rounds. They hold the 11th position in the league standings and have nowhere to go in last two matches.

Villarreal vs Eibar: Prediction

Eibar will hope to keep this a low-scoring affair as they managed to pull off results from such type of games in recent weeks. As the matter of fact, none of last five outings they played in Primera Division saw three or more goals scored.

Nevertheless, the Gunsmiths have been dreadful on travels so far in the season. They won 2, drew 8 and lost 8 of 18 away fixtures in the league. They bagged just 15 goals along the way. Knowing how important the match is for Villarreal, we have to go with the home win as the main betting recommendation here.
