Eibar vs Girona Prediction & Betting tips
The troubled Girona will visit this weekend at the always difficult Eibar. The Catalans have not won since November last year and therefore long for victory.
Eibar has traditionally been a team that mainly needs to have her home matches. That is no different this season, because no less than nineteen of the total 26 points were achieved in Ipurua. Trainer Jose Luis Mendilibar will therefore be happy that the Basques will play home again this weekend, as the result against Girona is to a large extent the tone for the rest of the season. In the event of a win, the Basques may continue to dream of European football, but in case of loss, they will most likely go to the anonymity of the right-hand row.
In the last few weeks, winning has certainly not been taken for granted by Eibar. The redblue had to be won only once in their last eight official matches, but played no less than six times during that period. The Basques are therefore regularly lacking quality to turn a contest into their own hands. That is mainly due to the shaky rearguard. In attacking terms, it’s a mustache at Eibar, because with nineteen goals in eleven home games, together with Atletico Madrid and Rayo Vallecano, the team is the second-most home league of La Liga, of course at the appropriate distance from league-leader FC Barcelona (36 goals). Eibar is particularly dangerous in the air. Sergi Enrich and Kike Garcia are head specialists, while Jose Angel and Joan Jordan have a good cross.
2019 has not brought much luck for Girona. With a series of eleven official games without victory, the Catalans have been working on their worst series for a long time and are therefore still waiting for their first victory of the new calendar year. In addition, the red-witches were eliminated this week by Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey and they are struggling with a persistent injury wave. Despite a safe 14th place trainer Eusebio is not to be envied.
Also this weekend Eusebio will have to puzzle again to get a respectable team, because due to injuries and a suspension he has to visit no less than nine players at Eibar. The good news is that Cristhian Stuani will just be at the kickoff. The surefire Uruguayan was on the radar of several teams, but this week extended his contract until 2022. The now 32-year-old Stuani is at Girona at his second youth, because after his 21 goals from last year he was also this season already twelve times accurate in La Liga. Girona desperately needs his goals in any case, because the gap on the relegation zone is only three points.
