Eibar vs Alaves Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Eibar’s poor run extended after a 2-0 loss against Real Betis. Sergio Leon was the star of the show in the game and he opened the scoring after 21 minutes, while Arbilla’s own goal in the second-half made things safe for the hosts. Deportivo Alaves boosted their survival hopes with a 2-0 victory over Getafe at home. After a goalless first half, Laguardia came up with the opener just three minutes into the second half. Munir doubled the advantage for Alaves in the 75th minute. The comeback from Getafe never really materialised and the club even missed an 81st minute penalty through Antunes.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Alaves’ last victory over Eibar was in the second division back in 2013. Even this victory came at home for Alaves. Even though Eibar have been winless in the last five games, the team has enough quality to overcome a relegation-threatened Alaves. The victory over Getafe makes Alaves almost safe from relegation. This situation may result in a lacklustre performance from the away team, and I would back a win for Eibar.

Eibar’s scoring form has dipped quite badly and the team has been unable to score in the last two matches. However, they are up against an Alaves outfit that has kept back-to-back clean sheets. Even though Abelardo’s have not been the best team out there when it comes to defences, a combination of factors is likely to make this game as a low scoring encounter.

Eibar Preview

Eibar may have killed their Europa League hopes after the loss against Real Betis, as the team are now seven points behind the top six with seven matches left in the campaign. However, teams like Celta de Vigo have better momentum and they can be considered as potential names to finish in the top six. The last five matches have taken the team to a ride, just like in the early part of the campaign. For long periods of the first half, Eibar fighting against the threat of relegation with the teen spending most of its time in the bottom three. However, a spectacular run since November has put the team on the verge of a top-10 finish.

Eibar Team News

Fran Rico (knee), Sergi Enrich (meniscus), and Charles (rib) are the names missing from action for Eibar.

Alaves Preview

Alaves have been able to open up a significant advantage over the bottom three after the latest victory over Getafe. The team may be five points away from hitting the 40-point figure, but the 12-point advantage over Deportivo La Coruna almost places Alaves within touching distance of mathematical safety. After having struggled with form throughout the campaign, manager Abelardo has been able to create a sufficient impact at the club since being appointed on December 1. He has averaged just over 1.5 points per match while being in charge of the team.

Alaves Team News

Ruben Duarte (ankle) and Hector Hernandez Ortega (knee) are the two players rated as doubtful for the game, while there are no serious injury concerns for the club.
