Eibar vs Girona Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Eibar were able to create a major upset in the league after beating Valencia 2-1 at the Ipurua. The home outfit were rather fortunate when Takashi Inui scored the opening goal in the 49th minute, but it did not take Valencia long to equalise the scores through Santi Mina in the 57th minute. However, Joan Jordan stepped up to score a late winner to provide an advantage for Barcelona in the La Liga title race. Girona beat Getafe 1-0 at home to make it two consecutive wins. Christian Stuani took his league tally to 9 goals after coming up with the opener in the fifth minute.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The only meetings between Girona and Eibar have been in the second division. Surprisingly, Eibar have never been able to beat Girona in four attempts. Yet, this may be the occasion when Eibar end this poor run. Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team have been in outstanding form, with no La Liga outfit taking more points over the last five matches. Even with Girona losing only once in the last five games, I see this match going as an Eibar win.

The last two games involving Girona may have been 1-0 wins, but this match is likely to witness the home outfit’s strong goalscoring form takes precedence. Eibar have scored at an average of more than 2 goals in the last six matches. I would go with over 2.5 goals in the game.

Eibar win – 1/1

Total goals over 2.5 – 43/40

Eibar Preview

Eibar have been extraordinarily good over the last five matches with the team taking more points than the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona. Only Atletico Madrid can claim a similar record as Eibar during this period. The latest victory over Valencia helped Eibar enhance their push for the Europa League places. Last season, a late downturn in fortunes led to Eibar missing out on the same, but it appears that the club is intent on qualifying for Europe. Only a few weeks ago, Eibar were struggling with the threat of relegation – which appeared to be a distinct possibility back then. Charles is the top scorer with five goals for the campaign.

Eibar Team News

Yoel Rodriguez (cruciate ligament), Pedro Leon (knee), Ivan Ramis (leg), and Fran Rico (knee) are the players unavailable due to various injuries.

Girona Preview

Just when it seemed that Girona had run out of steam after suffering a home defeat against Deportivo Alaves, Pablo Machin’s team have bounced back in impressive style after managing back-to-back 1-0 victories. Against all the odds and expectations, Girona find themselves with an opportunity to finish in the top six places going into the winter break. This would be an astonishing achievement for the club, but sustaining the same maybe the difficult task. Girona have lost only once in the last six games. Christian Stuani remains the key asset for Girona and he is now on to 9 goals for the campaign.

Girona Team News

Marc Muniesa (ankle), Pedro Alcala (ankle), and José Aurelio Suarez (shoulder) are the players unavailable for Girona. Alex Granell will miss out on the game due to suspension.
