EIBAR VS ALAVES PREVIEW & PREDICTION
The Basques leave slightly as favorites because of the good campaign they are doing and especially because they tend to become strong in Ipurúa. For this reason and even when it is difficult for him to win often against his people, we believe that his simple victory is the most interesting alternative to bet. Remember that the visit is not reliable in this condition, beyond being combative between the lines. Suffice it to know that he has lost 11 of his 15 outings to corroborate this claim.
The Basques do not get well to this duel after losing 2-0 to Betis as a visitor in the Benito Villamarín, staying with 40 units in total. The team has added 2 draws and 3 losses in their last 5 presentations, lowering their performance significantly on all lines. Of course, despite this bad run, is still a complicated eleven to overcome and vertical attack.
As a local in Ipurua, Eibar has reaped acceptable results despite some setbacks throughout the season (7 wins, 4 draws and 5 falls, scoring 25 goals and conceding 17 on his fence). He comes from thrashing 5-1 to Sevilla, losing 0-2 to Barcelona, to overcome 1-0 to Villarreal, to fall 1-2 with Real Madrid and to equal 0-0 with Real Sociedad.
The team arrives motivated to this match after defeating 2-0 to Getafe as a local and to add 35 points in the general table. He returned to win after several games without being able to do so, managing to get away much more from the direct descent. Despite its defensive problems, it is still a militant between the lines. Of course, he needs to improve more, since his soccer limitations often play against him.
Far from Mendizorroza, Alavés has registered bad results so far, lacking defensive solidity in this condition (3 wins, 1 parity and 11 losses, specifying 11 goals and receiving 26 in his goal). His last departures were as follows: 4-0 defeat against Real Madrid, 2-1 loss to Real Sociedad, 3-1 defeat against Valencia and 0-0 draw against Espanyol.
The last time they played both tables was in the first round and the final result was favorable for Eibar as a visitor by 1-2. In Ipurúa, the Basques equalized without goals against Alavés in December 2016.
