Spanish La Liga – Alaves vs Eibar Betting Tips – Feb 8th, 2020

Match Preview

Deportivo Alaves and SD Eibar will look to get as far away from relegation as possible when they meet at the Mendizorrotza in the La Liga on Friday night.

Alaves Match Form

Both sides are level on 24 points and find themselves in the bottom half of the table. The Babazorros are in 15th place while their opponents are in 16th place. Both teams are 6 points of Mallorca in 17th and Leganes in 18th place.

While a 6-point lead is decent, it is still not strong enough for either club to imagine themselves to be safe. The current positions are a reflection of a poor season for the duo with Alaves finishing 11th to Los Armeros’ 12th-placed finish last time around.

Eibar Match Form

Looking up, Valladolid and Levante are 1 and 2 points ahead respectively while Real Betis and Osasuna are 4 points ahead. Thus, both sides have a great chance to finish much higher with 10th place just 6 points upfront.

Esteban Burgos eibar

Asier Garitano’s side drew 1-1 away at Sevilla with a goal from Joselu while Jose Luis Mendilibar’s men held Real Betis to the same scoreline through a Fabian Orellana penalty.

Thus, both sides will look to get a result and not only get ahead of the other but also move further towards safety on Friday night.

Team News

In terms of team news, Tomas Pina is the only injured player for the hosts and he is out until April. Coming to their opponents, Mendilibar will be without Sergio Alvarez until the end of the month while Ivan Ramis, Gonzalo Escalante and Kike are all doubts for the game.

Last Meetings & Alaves vs Eibar Betting Tips

Looking at head-to-head, Eibar lead overall with 14 wins to Alaves’ 9 in 27 meetings. The reverse fixture, however, did end in favour of the latter and they will look to use that as momentum. In the last 5 clashes, both sides have won 2 apiece.

Further, the Babazorros are winless in their last 3 meetings at home, drawing two and losing one. Those 3 games witnessed just 3 goals and another low-scoring match can be expected. The fact that both teams have averaged around just 1 goal per game further confirms that.

In terms of form, Eibar are slightly better, with no losses in their last 3 league games, winning one and drawing two. However, margins are fairly slim for this fixture, just like the gap between the teams in the table.

Thus, another close contest can be expected with both teams sharing the spoils in a goalless draw at the end.

Predicted Lineups:

Alaves Predicted XI: Pacheco; Aguirregabiria, Navarro, Laguardia, Magallan, Duarte; Camarasa, Fejsa, Manu Garcia; Joselu, Burke

Eibar Predicted XI: Dmitrovic; Tejero, Burgos, Bigas, Angel; Diop, Exposito; Leon, Orellana, Inui; Enrich
