Eibar vs Las Palmas Prediction & Betting tips
The cozy Ipurua will fill up again this season when Eibar wishes her fans a nice summer vacation against Las Palmas. The visitors are already relegated and are therefore busy with their preliminary farewell tour.
Eibar may have played out in La Liga, but that does not mean that the Basques will throw the cap in the remainder of the season. On the contrary: last weekend the redblue shattered the European dream of Girona by triumphing no less than 1-4 in the Montilivi. If only points from away games would count, Eibar would be allowed to dream aloud from European football with a sixth place. The Basques do not do too badly in their own Ipurua with seven victories, although the seven home defendants also indicate that there is still enough room for improvement. Trainer Jose Luis Mendilibar certainly gets plenty of time for that, because he extended his contract this week.
One of those points for improvement is the attack. The four hits of last weekend in and against Girona were also a big surprise for their own supporters, as Los Armeros has been struggling for the entire season with a lack of scoring ability. In a sense, it’s a good thing that deep striker Kike Garcia is suspended Saturday night, because with the exception of Girona-out, he has not kicked a packet of butter for months. The Brazilian Charles, like Kike Garcia, has seven goals, but in contrast to the Spaniard, he did not need much time to get that number. Apparently Mendilibar is quite fond of Kike Garcia’s zest for work, but the main task of a striker is ultimately to score goals. Mendilibar must be puzzling anyway, because apart from Kike Garcia he has to miss a lot of potential basic players with Pedro Leon, Sergi Enrich, Ivan Alejo and perhaps also Anaitz Arbilla.
Paco Jemez has overestimated himself, we can draw that conclusion anyway. The coach thought he could save the errant Las Palmas for relegation when he was appointed in the winter, but with just eleven points from the nineteen games under his leadership, nothing came of that. As a result, we will not be able to see the island club again in La Liga after the summer.
In the remaining two league matches, there is nothing for Las Palmas to try to say goodbye to the highest level with a lifted head. Last weekend, the vice-hekkensluiter in house against Getafe good party, though the visitors there thanks to a late goal still with the full loot off: 0-1. Incidentally, the yellow shirts entered in that game without players from the Canary Islands, something that had not happened since the 2000-2001 season. Again a setback for the fans, even though Jemez could not worry about that: ‘It does not interest me at all where a player comes from. I only look at the qualities that I need to be able to win. ‘ According to the coach, the mood in the locker room is still fine, although I can hardly imagine that. The mercenaries will leave anyway, while the contract players will face an uncertain future in the Estadio de Gran Canaria. After all, the club will have to cut significantly in its budget.
