Eibar vs Getafe predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as the hosts aim to bounce back from 3 straight defeats.
Eibar vs Getafe Preview
The early game on Sunday features two of the most direct sides in La Liga. Both Eibar and Getafe like to go the aerial route with the Basques tending to get lots of crosses into the box while their opponents do go route one at times with Jorge Molina invariably their target. Both sides have had plenty of success with these methods but there is a bit of pressure building on the hosts heading into this game.
Eibar have lost each of their last 3 league games to just slide back towards the thick of the relegation scrap. Worryingly for José Luis Mendilibar, they conceded 10 goals in those matches, scoring just once with the home defeat against Alaves a particular low point. Therefore confidence will inevitably have taken a hit and they’ll be hungry to try and restore a bit of a cushion on the bottom three by winning this game.
That won’t be easy though against an in-form Getafe side. The South Madrid outfit head into this one having taken 17 points from their last 8 league games, a record only leaders Barcelona can better. That is some going for Jose Bordalas’ men who continue to go under the radar despite top eight finishes in each of the last two seasons.
One thing Getafe could perhaps improve on is their ability to turn draws into wins away from home and they may need to do that with more regularity if they are going to seal European qualification for the second season running. They are weakened slightly here by the suspension of Jason who has had a solid campaign on the right flank. They can at least recall forward Jaime Mata who was banned last time out while Eibar should be close to full strength.
Eibar vs Getafe Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Getafe are unbeaten against Eibar since their return to the top flight and neither side has really evolved their style of play this season which suggests that run could continue, particularly with the Basques looking as weak as they have done for several years. This one looks like it could end up all square with Geta again drawing more than they win or lose away from home.
