Eibar vs Levante Preview
Eibar take on Levante in what is a vital game for the hosts this Saturday in La Liga. Eibar have slipped down into real relegation trouble with a few of the teams below them starting to pick up a few results. They are 17th heading into this and with their away form poor, this is simply the sort of game they have to be winning if they are going to beat the drop.
The Basque minnows were hammered 5-0 at Camp Nou last time out. That result won’t determine the outcome of their season but it does mean that they go into this game without a win in 4 matches in La Liga. 67% of their points this term have come at home with 5 wins and 5 defeats from their 11 matches at Ipurua with just one draw.
Levante haven’t been involved in a single draw on their travels which suggests this one should produce a result either way. With 10 away defeats already this term, Paco Lopez’s side clearly are vulnerable but they have shown time and time again that they are a team that is capable of pulling a result out of the bag, often when it is least expected. Jose Luis Morales struck late last weekend to defeat leaders Real Madrid and lift Levante into the top half.
The hosts should at least be close to full strength for this crunch game with Ivan Ramis their only likely absentee of real note. Levante meanwhile have Nemanja Radoja available again but aren’t expected to tweak too much with the side that saw off Real Madrid last time out.

Eibar vs Levante Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Eibar
While Eibar have clearly slipped into the relegation mix, their home form is actually still pretty good with 7 points from their last 3 league matches at Ipurua including victories over Atletico Madrid and Granada. If they can perform on a similar level here, they are capable of winning this game and it would be very typical of Levante’s season for them to follow up victory over Real Madrid with a defeat against Eibar.
