Eibar vs Real Betis predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as Rubi’s men head to the Basque Country.
Eibar vs Real Betis Preview
The second game on a busy day of action in La Liga comes from the Basque Country where Eibar take on Real Betis. Only 3 places and 4 points separate the teams in the current table and both teams will see this match as a chance to gain a few places.
Eibar’s priority will be putting more distance between themselves and the bottom three. It has been a challenging season for José Luis Mendilibar in many respects but he does appear to have found more solutions to his side’s struggles in recent weeks. Eibar come into this one having lost just 1 of their last 5 games. Defensively they’ve been far better in recent weeks with just 1 goal conceded in their last 5 league outings, in sharp contrast to earlier in the season when they were leaking goals all over the place.
That underlines that it won’t be easy for Betis here as they try to find holes in this Eibar defence. They faced a similar task in their most recent match and were perhaps unfortunate to ultimately slip to a late 1-0 defeat at Getafe. Their overall poor away record is also a concern with just one victory so far this term on their travels in La Liga. Only Celta, Leganes and Mallorca have picked up fewer points on the road than Betis.
The visitors are again without Zouhair Feddal who saw red last time out. Rubi must also again decide whether to go with Loren Moron or Borja Iglesias up top with neither fully convincing. Eibar meanwhile have a few lingering injury problems but aren’t expected to change much from their draw with Celta last time out.
Eibar vs Real Betis Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-0 Eibar
Home advantage could be significant here. Eibar will take great confidence from their victory over Atleti in their most recent home game. They’re keeping things really tight right now which will make it difficult for Betis to create chances and unfortunately for the visitors, you never feel confident about their chances of keeping a clean sheet (they’ve conceded in 86% of their league games this term). Eibar may just nick this.
