Sevilla is welcoming Eibar to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in round 7 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Sevilla hasn’t won any of their last 3 games in, including the one against Chelsea in the Champions League earlier this week. Sevilla has started the LaLiga season well, with 2 wins, but they have been struggling in the attacking end after that. Sevilla is now in 10th place in the standings with 7 points, 5 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals. De Jong has scored 2 goals for Sevilla so far this season, while Navas added 2 assists. Pablo Perez is the only injured player for Sevilla at the moment, while Jordan is suspended because of the red card. In their last LaLiga game against Granada on the road, Sevilla has had 49% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 1 big chance created, and 79% of the correct passes. If Sevilla hasn’t conceded a red card, they would have probably won this game because they were the better team, but they ended up losing this match 1-0. Sevilla is a good team, and they have the quality to be in the top 4 in LaLiga, while they certainly can end up in one of the top two spots in their group in the Champions League. The only problem I see for Sevilla is the lack of depth while playing in 2 big competitions.
Eibar has been one of the weakest teams in LaLiga so far this season, and they have won only 1 of their 6 LaLiga games. Eibar has scored only 4 games in their 6 games while conceding 6 goals. With 5 points, Eibar is in 15th place in the standings. In their latest LaLiga match against Osasuna at home, Eibar was the better team with 52% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and low 63% of the correct passes. This wasn’t a particularly enjoyable game to watch, and it ended in a 0-0 draw. Kike has scored 2 goals for Eibar so far this season, while Burgos and Rodrigues added 1 goal each. Leon and Arbilla added 1 assist each. Jose Angel is the only injured player for Eibar as of right now. Eibar escaped the relegation last season, and they do have the quality to do the same this season, but they will need to start playing better soccer soon. Eibar is not playing in any other competition than LaLiga, and that should help them a little bit in their mission to stay in LaLiga for another season.
When playing at home, Sevilla has not lost to Eibar in their last 9 games, while Sevilla has won 6 home games in a row overall. Sevilla is the better team here, and the trends are on their side. Sevilla could be tired after their Champions League match, but they are used to this pace by now. I’m sticking with Sevilla at home.
