Eibar – Espanyol Match Prediction | 26-08-2019 06:00

Los Periquitos used to play in bright yellow shirts in the past, but current colour of the teams home kit is blue and white. In 1901 the Catalan club changed its name to Club Espanol de Futbol. Espanyol were founded in 1900 and their original name was Sociedad Espanola de Football. Espanyol are a Catalan club that plays in Spanish La Liga.

Thus, the Spanish attacker was responsible for about 43 percent of the goals of Espanyol Barcelona in the league. In Eibar, the coach must continue to do without the injured David Lopez and Adria Pedrosa. This shows at the same time the great pendency of this striker at Espanyol. In the league it was enough away for Espanyol but only for a meager success. In La Liga, the upswing on the final day but was over again, because the team of coach Rubi had beaten in a balanced game at Real Sociedad in the end with 3-2. Nevertheless, Espanyol Barcelona should now confidently travel to the Basque Country. Otherwise, it was enough for no other player for more than a maximum of two league goals. Last Thursday, Pericos reached the quarter-finals of the Spanish Cup in the Copa del Rey by beating Villarreal 3-1 in the second leg.

Eibar sit in the 13th place in the table ahead of Matchday 20, but seeing that they are only three points clear of the relegation zone, the game against Espanyol is of big importance for them. Los Periquitos, on the other hand, did well to beat Leganes in their last home game, but given their poor away record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on los Armeros, who have turned their Estadio Municipal de Butarque into a real fortress. In their last meeting in the Basque Country Eibar recorded a 3-1 win over Espanyol, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. Mondays football game at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua pits together Eibar and Espanyol, the two teams who are almost level on points in the La Liga standings.

Even during that spell, they were far less convincing on the road though and they are the clear underdogs here. As for the visitors, Espanyol have also slipped into the bottom half now. Its getting towards the point where if they keep on losing matches, an improbable relegation battle is plausible despite a wonderful start to the season that saw them in the top four for many weeks.

Head To Head

However, Eibar did not come out three times in a row last time over a draw. In the upcoming game between Eibar and Espanyol Barcelona, a tip with odds of 3.30 on another draw is worth at least a consideration. At home Eibar has been unbeaten for six match days. In the native Estadio Ipurua, the performances of the Basques can be seen. So Eibar is in a home table on a strong seventh place. Due to injury, the coach on Monday Pedro Leon is due to a foot injury not available.

He also bagged a brace in the cup on Thursday and should be full of confidence heading into this, so backing Iglesias to score anytime could be worth considering. The Espanyol striker is having a fine debut season with the Catalan club, scoring 9 times already in La Liga. In terms of the outcome here, the hosts do look the more likely winners but they will need to deal with Borja Iglesias.

The small Basque club SD Eibar has financially only manageable possibilities. So far this season, however, things are not going well with the Basques. As a result, the team of coach Mendilibar is only in 16th place before the upcoming matchday. In return, Eibar does an astonishingly good job and once again took a decent place in the safe midfield in the last season. On the other hand, there were already seven defeats for Eibar. With five wins and seven draws, Eibar currently has 22 points and the lead over a relegation spot is just three points.

They have made a slightly brighter start to 2019 though with a Copa del Rey win over Villarreal last week. This Mondays game sees two sides meet who have been on the slide somewhat over the past month or two. Espanyol meanwhile have lost 7 of their last 8 games in La Liga, undoing a lot of their good work early in the season. Eibar havent won since that famous victory over Real Madrid when they cruised to a 3-0 win against Santi Solaris men.
