Eibar is hosting Elche CF at Ipurua Municipal Stadium in round 4 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Eibar has been in bad form for a while now, and they haven’t won any of their last 3 games in LaLiga. During this stretch, Eibar has conceded 4 goals while scoring only 2 goals. With only 1 point, Eibar is now in 18th place in the standings. In their latest LaLiga match against Athletic Bilbao at home, Eibar has had 49% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and low 63% of the correct passes. Eibar was losing at half time, but they tied the result in the 48th minute to 1-1. In the 87th minute, Eibar has conceded another goal, and they ended up losing this match 1-2. The only goalscorer for Eibar is Kike with 2 goals. Pedro Leon and Exposito have each added 1 assist. Angel and Cubero are both injured, while Enrich is still questionable for this match. Eibar’s next three games are on the easier side, and I believe they could win some points. The upcoming break is coming at the right time for Eibar as well, and hopefully, they will be in better shape after the international break.
Elche has played only 1 game in LaLiga so far, and they have lost that game at home. Elche was hosting Real Sociedad in that match, and they were the weaker team with only 40% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and only 77% of accurate passes. As bad as Elche was in the attacking end, they were worse on the defensive end in this match, and they have lost this game 0-3. Elche is in the last place in the standings with 0 points, 0 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals, but they also have 2 games less than most of the teams in LaLiga. Cifuentes is the only injured player for Elche as of right now. Elche has arrived at LaLiga this season through the promotion playoffs, and they will have a tough time because they lack quality and depth to compete in one of the strongest leagues in the world. With a little bit of luck, Elche can reach at least the relegation playoffs this season, but to be honest, I don’t see Elche getting outside the relegation zone.
Eibar hasn’t won any of their last 7 games, and the trends are actually on Elche’s side in this matchup. This is the game between two teams in bad form, and the teams that are playing bad soccer on both ends. I don’t think we will see a lot of goals here, and my gut is telling me this one could end in a draw.
