TV: Sky sports 5; Bein Sports;
Valencia have a chance to go three points clear of Sevilla on Sunday but they take on an Eibar team desperate for points in their fight for survival. Valencia will look to their front three of Alcacer , Negredo and Piatti to provide the attackign threat going forward and the goals to win this game and move Valencia closer to Champions League football next season. Valencia have had an up and down season but Sevilla's loss to Real Madrid last night opens an opportunity for Valencia to take control of the Champions League race.
Eibar have failed to score in three of their last four games, they have lost five of their last six and really this is relegation form. Eibar need to pick up more points if they are going to survive in La Liga but it is hard to see them picking up anything at the Mestalla on Sunday evening. Eibar have won just one of their last ten away games and lost seven, Eibar need more goals but their only threats up front Arrabueana and Piovaccari have been struggling of late with Eibar struggling to create chances.
Hard to see anything but a comfortable Valencia win here so I am taking Valencia -1 on the handicap.
