Eibar vs Espanyol Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Eibar are searching for a third consecutive league victory after beating Deportivo Alaves 2-1 during the weekend. Joan Jordan and Charles put Eibar in a commanding position, but Alaves were at a serious disadvantage with Christian Santos sent off in the 45th minute. Espanyol also had a goal scorer Carlos sent off in the 83rd minute, and Alaves claimed a consolation through Burgui’s 90th minute goal. Espanyol beat Getafe 1-0 at home to end a run of back-to-back losses. Gerard Moreno came up with the only goal of the game in the 55th minute, but Getafe had earlier missed a golden opportunity to open the scoring.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The absence of Eibar’s top scorer Charles due to suspension is a major blow to the home team’s chances of success in this match. Espanyol are still winless in six away games, but they have at least drawn three of those games. Eibar and Espanyol played out draws in both games during the 2016-17 campaign. This match also looks set for a stalemate. Despite not being in the top 10, Espanyol have been quite good at the back with only 15 goals conceded so far. Most of these goals have been scored by the top outfits, as the Espanyol defence has held their own against lower league opponents. Eibar are expected to struggle for goals without Charles. This game looks likely to witness under 2.5 goals in total.

Eibar Preview

After a struggle for results in the first few weeks of the season, Eibar are back amongst the fight for a top-10 finish. The club have risen to 15th in the table. Purely in terms of league position, Eibar may have a long way to the top 10 places, but they are only three points behind 10th-placed Girona. Eibar have been let down by a defence that has conceded 26 goals, while the team has only scored a mere 13 goals. Recent form, however, is in favour of Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team with 10 goals in the last six games. Charles is the top scorer at the club with five goals.

Eibar Team News

Charles is suspended for the game, while Eibar manager Jose Luis Mendilibar will be without Fran Rico (knee), Pedro Leon (knee), Yoel Rodriguez (cruciate ligament), Christian Rivera (Achilles tendon), Daniel Garcia Carrillo (thigh), and Ivan Alejo Peralta (hip) due to injury.

Espanyol Preview

Espanyol continue to set a strong defensive record after a fourth clean sheet in the 13 games. Even though the Catalan outfit are in the bottom half of the table, they have been able to make a significant impression with their strong defensive performances. Espanyol, though, have struggled going forward with only 10 goals in 13 matches. Only Leganes have scored fewer goals than Espanyol among the teams outside the drop zone. Leo Baptistao was a strong source of goals in the first few games, but Gerard Moreno is now the leading scorer at the club with five for the campaign.

Espanyol Team News

Leo Baptistao (thigh), Adrian Lopez (meniscus), Javi Lopez (calf), and Javi Fuego (groin) are the players unavailable for Espanyol.
