Villarreal vs Eibar
Date: 1st October 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica.
The home clash with Eibar will be a perfect opportunity for Villarreal to bounce back after a series of negative results which culminated last weekend with a demolishing 4-0 loss to the newly-promoted Getafe side at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
El Submarino Amarillo failed to find the back of the net in each of their previous three matches in all competitions.
The poor run came after an impressive streak of three straight fixtures which saw Javi Calleja’s side netting nine goals in total.
Villarreal failed to back up the fine start to the new Europa League campaign as they only drew (0-0) with Maccabi Tel Aviv on Thursday evening in Israeli capital.
Eibar have been disastrous defensively in last two fixtures as they allowed ten goals in back-to-back losses in last two rounds (against Barcelona and Celta Vigo).
The visitors, who were among the most pleasant surprised of the last term of Primera Division), will likely have a very difficult task saving the elite class status this year if we are to judge by their poor start of the new campaign.
Villarreal vs Eibar: Head to head
Interestingly, Eibar lead the head to head tie by a single win ahead of their 13th meetings with Villarreal.
Seven of last eight meetings between the two sides saw both teams on the scoreline, including Eibar’s 2-3 victory from Estadio de la Ceramica in early-April this year.
