Eibar vs Espanyol Match Preview
Espanyol have made their way past Zorya (5-3 on aggregate) in an exciting Europa League Play-offs clash but could have seen it costly early in La Liga, as they sit in the bottom of the table with just one point after three games played. They now travel to Eibar hoping they’ve used the break to a good cause, looking to finally bounce to the winning ways.
RCDE have seen a thrashing 0-3 loss to Granada beforehand and just a point snatched at Alaves (0-0) beforehand will hardly be a confidence booster, as David Gallego’s men still have to break their duck in the final third. They’ve been scoring numbers of goals through the UEL Qualifiers but picking it up in the league will be a crucial task.
However, doing so in Eibar will be no easy task despite the rivals hardly enjoying the early campaign themselves. Eibar played all their three games on the road and suffered losses in exciting clashes at Mallorca (2-1) and Atletico Madrid (3-2), only holding Osasuna to a goalless draw along the way.
Los Armeros now hope they can do more in front of the home fans and finally capitalize on goals scored, as they look to escape the bottom part of the table themselves. We thus expect an exciting occasion at Ipurua, with both sides going all out for the points and hopefully scoring numbers of goals on the day.
We do feel Eibar have what it takes to outgun the rivals, though, and we’ll go for them to secure all three points at 19/20 with Ladbrokes. We’ve seen them much tougher at this ground and now hope to see them motivated to finally impress here.
With that in mind, we’re obviously making a case for a high-scoring contest on Sunday and we’ll thus back Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 13/10 with Unibet and has caught the eye of many in the know – who hope to see a winner after all.
