SD Eibar vs Getafe CF Soccer Match Preview
Eibar will look to put a losing run behind them when they host Getafe at the Municipal de Ipurua on Sunday in the La Liga.
SD Eibar Match Form
After three successive losses in the league, Eibar are 16th in the table. They are just two points clear of Celta Vigo in 18th place. Coach Jose Luis Mendilibar is not under enormous pressure, but increasing that gap will be his priority. The last three defeats have been heavy ones for Eibar. They have conceded ten goals in that time, scoring just once themselves. Last week’s 4-1 loss against Real Sociedad was arguably the biggest one.
Eibar were level at half-time, but Sociedad ran away with it in the end. Papakouli Diop scored the only goal for them in the game. Eibar have scored 15 goals so far, which is at a rate of a goal a game. They have let in 27 goals at the other end, which is only second to Espanyol in the league. Eibar have kept only three clean sheets this season, and two of them came from goalless draws. Their last league win was a 2-1 triumph over Leganes. Charles and Kike got the goals for them in that game.
Mendilibar needs to do work on the defensive end to increase his side’s chances of winning games. They finished with 47 points last season, which was good enough for a finish in 12th place. Since they got promoted in 2014, ninth has been the highest they have gotten. Their lowest position under Mendilibar has been 13th. He would hope to sink no lower than that this time.
Getafe CF Last Performance
Getafe have built upon their surprise campaign last time, and they sit in 7th place in the table. They have lost just once in their last seven games in all competitions. Last week Getafe hosted Levante and recorded a comprehensive 4-0 victory. All four goals came in the second half as Getafe ran riot. Levante had 62% possession in the game, but Getafe were far more clinical. They had nine efforts on target in the game compared to just two from Levante.
Their Europa League campaign is also going well, and they are in second place in their group with one game to go. Krasnodar are the opponents in the final game on Thursday. It is a crucial game, as the winner will make it to the knockout rounds at the expense of the loser. Some players could be rested against Eibar, keeping that game in mind.
Three out of the last five games between these sides have ended in draws. Getafe have won the other two, and Eibar’s last win came back in 2015. The last meeting ended in a 2-2 draw in February.
SD Eibar vs Getafe Betting Tips
Getafe will be the favourites this time as well, and they should get the three points. Eibar are on a bad run, and Getafe should take advantage. The total goals should be over 2.5 in this game, as both sides are likely to find the back of the net.
