Getafe vs Eibar Preview
Getafe will be desperate to claim their first win since the season restart when they take on Eibar this Saturday. The hosts went into the break in strong top four contention but have seen their Champions League dreams fade just a little by a couple of disappointing results so far.
Having been beaten 2-1 at Granada in their first match back, they were very much targeting three points at home to bottom club Espanyol in midweek. When their opponents were reduced to 10 men in just the 16th minute they appeared to have a golden opportunity to put maximum points on the board but an uninspired display where they seldom really threatened the visitors’ goal, meant they had to settle for a 0-0 draw.
Eibar won’t be lacking in motivation here either. They are fighting for their lives but like their opponents have only collected one point from two matches since the return to action. Their performance last time out probably merited a win but they were left frustrated by a late Athletic goal in a 2-2 Basque derby draw at Ipurua.
Geta have Xabier Etxeita back from suspension here and he should start at centre-back. Jose Bordalas should continue his rotation policy up top with Deyverson likely to return to the side in place of veteran Jorge Molina. Eibar have no fresh selection problems ahead of this one but may also make some minor changes.

Getafe vs Eibar Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-0 Getafe
Getafe haven’t been impressive so far but they do have a bit more strength in depth than their opponents with this squad built to cope with the demands of a European campaign which often involves playing two games per week anyway. They should get more chances in this game than either of their previous two with Eibar not great defensively and may just give their Champions League hopes a lift with victory.
