Eibar is hosting Valencia at Ipurua Municipal Stadium in round 31 of Spanish LaLiga.
Eibar is in a bad form and they won only 1 of their last 7 games. Since the season restarted, Eibar has conceded 6 goals in their last 3 games, while scoring 4 goals. With 29 points, 31 scored goals, and 47 conceded goals, Eibar is in 17th place, which is just above the relegation zone, but only by 3 points. In their most recent LaLiga match against Getafe on the road, Eibar has had 46% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 1 corner kicks, and extremely low 48% of the correct passes. The first half result was 1-1, and it didn’t change again in this game. Orellana has scored 8 goals and added 6 assists for Eibar this season, while Charles added 6 goals. Ivan Ramis is the only injured player for Eibar, and he will not be playing in this match. Eibar is a weak team with a terrible defense, but all the other teams in the relegation zone are also bad teams, which could help Eibar to stay in LaLiga if they can win another game or two. I suspect that will be enough.
After 4 games without a win, Valencia has finally won their first game since the season restarted. In their last LaLiga match against Osasuna at home, Valencia has had 55% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, and 84% of the correct passes. With a solid defense, composed midfield, and the offense that has finally shown us something good, Valencia has won this game 2-0. Valencia was having a solid season, but then something bad happened and they entered this slump, because of which they got knocked out of the Champions League and dropped a few spots in the LaLiga standings. Valencia is now in 8th place with 46 points, 41 scored goals, and 43 conceded goals. Piccini, Garay, and Coquelin are all injured, and they will most likely not be playing in this match. Gomez and Parejo have scored 8 goals each for Valencia this season, while Gameiro added 5 goals, while Moreno has 4 goals and 7 assists. I know that Valencia can play much better than this, and they did, but all the injuries on the defensive end cost them a lot, but Valencia’s players are now filled with confidence after their latest win and will look to get back on the Europa League spot.
The trends are evenly split here, and the only game Valencia has won against Eibar on the road was back in 2014. The home wins are hard to come by since the restart because there is no audience, and Eibar is not playing well. I will side with Valencia in this one because they are the better team and they will look to extend their winning streak.
