Eibar is hosting Real Valladolid at Ipurua Municipal Stadium in round 37 in Spanish LaLiga.
Eibar is in 15th place in the standings with 39 points, 7 points above the relegation zone, and with only 6 possible points to be won this season, Eibar is safe and will be playing in LaLiga next season as well. Eibar’s defense is one of the worst in LaLiga with 51 conceded goals, while their offense isn’t any better, and Eibar has scored only 36 goals this season. Since the restart, Eibar was solid with 3 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses, but they haven’t lost any of their last two LaLiga games. In their most recent LaLiga game against Espanyol on the road, Eibar was weak with only 28% of ball possession, 2 corner kicks, low 59% of the correct passes, but they had 6 shots on goal. As usual, Espanyol’s defense was a mess, and Eibar used it to their advantage. Eibar has won this game 0-2, and with it, they secured their LaLiga spot. Orellana is Eibar’s best player with 8 goals and 7 assists. Charles added 6 goals. Ivan Ramis is injured, and the season is over for him. It was tense for a while there for Eibar, but the goal they set up for themselves was accomplished.
Real Valladolid has also secured their spot in LaLiga for next season despite losing their last 2 games in a row. Since the restart, Valladolid has been playing solid soccer, and they have 4 draws, 3 losses, and 2 wins in their last 9 games. Valladolid hasn’t been playing well in the attacking end this season, and they have scored only 29 goals this season, the second-worst offense in the league. Guardiola and Unal have each scored 6 goals for Valladolid this season. Salisu and Herrero are both injured, and they will not be playing again this season. Valladolid has scored only 1 goal in their last 2 games while conceding 3 goals. In their latest LaLiga game against Barcelona at home, Valladolid has had 35% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and 81% of the correct passes. Despite low possession, Valladolid was playing well in this match and they were even able to put some pressure on Barcelona’s defense as the game was coming to the end, but in the end, Valladolid has lost this game 0-1. Valladolid could go a spot higher or lower in the standings, but the most important thing is that they are outside the relegation zone and that Valladolid will play in LaLiga next season as well.
This match is meaningless both for Eibar and Valladolid, and neither of those teams has had a good season in the attacking end. With all that being said, I will choose a draw for this game.
