Eibar and Getafe face each other on Sunday in a game from the 16th round

Eibar and Getafe face each other on Sunday in a game from the 16th round of La Liga. Let’s take a look at this game in our La Liga predictions, shall we?

 

Eibar are in a serious need of points at the moment. Right now they are 16th in the standings with 15 points, but that’s just 2 points above the relegation zone. Especially at home ground, Mendilibar’s boys must seek as many points they can win. It’s going to be a difficult fight for them until the end of the campaign.

 

In 15 games played so far during the campaign, Eibar managed to win just four times. Their current form is also far from perfect because right now they are in a run of three consecutive defeats. In their last game Eibar visited Real Sociedad in San Sebastian, but got beaten with 1-4. Papakouli Diop scored for the visitors, but La Real dominated and easily won.

 

The head coach Mendilibar has some squad problems before the next game. The midfielder Sergio Alvarez is sidelined with an injury, so he won’t be avaliable on Sunday.

 

Getafe continue to be pretty solid under the good management of Jose Bordalas. They are currently 7th in the league 24 points, just one point behind the 6th Atletico Madrid. In their last five games Getafe are doing more than good – three wins and two draws.

 

Last week Getafe hosted Levante at home and celebrated a huge 4-0 win. All of the four goals in the game were scored after the break. Leandro Cabrera opened the score, while Jorge Molina doubled the lead from a penalty kick. Angel and Timor scored the next two.

 

In our La Liga predictions we favour Getafe against Eibar in this one. The hosts are not really that convincing, while the visitors are in a great shape at the moment.
