Eibar vs Valencia Match Prediction

By William Hall

Eibar’s recent good spell extended even after a goalless draw at Getafe during the weekend. Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team were good going forward and came up with chance after chance. Ivey Lopez came the closest by hitting the woodwork, while Joan Jordan missed a penalty in the 54th minute. Mehdi Lacen could have won the game late on for Getafe. Valencia came back to winning ways by beating Celta de Vigo 2-1 at the Mestalla. Simone Zaza broke his four-game drought with a near post header in the 20th minute, but Iago Aspas equalised for the away team just after half time. A late penalty from Dani Parejo provided three points for Valencia. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This happens to be another stern test for Valencia, as Eibar were able to do the double over the 2004 La Liga champions. Valencia this season are quite different with the team managing to overcome their opponents with ease, although the last three matches have been quite different. Valencia’s defence is likely to be stretched by Eibar, who have been in excellent form going forward. I would expect over 2.5 goals in the game. Valencia’s latest away match ended in a defeat against Getafe, and the team has been far from convincing in the last couple of games. Eibar have been quite different in this regard after winning three out of the last four games. Eibar were also able to do the double over Valencia in the 2016-17 campaign. A victory for Eibar is my pick in this game.

Eibar Preview

The spirited recent form for Eibar has helped the club make up several places over the last few weeks. Surprisingly, the team were in the bottom three after seven match days into the campaign. In fact, the team has moved away from the relegation zone in the last three match days. Over the last six matches, Eibar have scored more goals (13) than any other team in the division – and this is an impressive statistic even after the draw with Getafe. Charles remains the top scorer at the club with five goals.

Eibar Team News

Yoel Rodriguez (cruciate ligament), Fran Rico (knee), David Junca (thigh), Asier Riesgo (shoulder), and Pedro Leon (knee) are the players unavailable for Eibar.

Valencia Preview

Valencia will be delighted to make a return to winning ways, as there was a danger of the team dropping out of the race after a couple of poor results. The team had to produce their best against Celta de Vigo in order to recover from a two-game winless run in the La Liga. Valencia have been able to sustain a second spot for most of the campaign, but the team’s lead over Atletico Madrid is just one point. Simone Zaza leads the scoring charts at Valencia and he has entered into double figures (10) for the campaign.

Valencia Team News

Simone Zaza is suspended for the game in a major blow for Marcelino, who will also be without Javier Jimenez (cruciate ligament), Rodrigo (cold), Carlos Soler (ankle), and Jeison Murillo (hernia) due to injury.
