      Eibar vs Espanyol Predictions

       

      They did suffer defeat at home in the Copa del Rey in midweek when they were beaten 3-2 by Las Palmas but have won their two league matches since the short winter break. They beat Sporting Gijon 2-0 at home before a thumping 4-0 victory away to Real Betis last time out in the league.

      That result moved them up to 8th place and a win here could propel them into the top six at the mid-way point in the season which would be a remarkable achievement given they were heavy favourites for the drop before a ball was kicked. They made wholesale changes for the Las Palmas game so we probably shouldn’t read too much into that result and will be confident of a good result here having only lost at home in the league to the 2 Madrid giants this season.

      Espanyol are doing what they do, which is plodding along steadily in mid-table without ever really threatening the European places nor looking in too much danger of getting sucked in to the relegation battle. This game comes in the middle of a run which sees them play city rivals Barcelona 3 times in 4 days.

      They held Barca to a 0-0 draw at home in the league last weekend but were beaten 4-1 at the Camp Nou in the Copa del Rey in midweek in a bad-tempered clash that saw them have Hernan Perez and Papakouli Diop sent off.

      The visitors will perhaps be suffering from a little fatigue from that encounter and two games where they had very little possession. Espanyol don’t travel well in general, having lost all of their last 5 away games in La Liga. Given that and given Eibar are playing very well right now, the home side look really good value at Evens to win this one.

      Espanyol have only scored once in those 5 most recent away matches and only 3 teams in the division have scored fewer goals than them this season. Therefore if you’re looking for a correct score bet consider backing a surprisingly enterprising Eibar side to win 2-0 at 7/1.
