Eibar vs Valencia Prediction & Betting tips
Some are the hunted, the others the pursuers: if on Thursday day 31 in La Liga Eibar plays against Valencia, the odds already show how balanced the game should be, because the starting point is precarious for both.
Eibar is fighting the relegation, is just 17th in the red zone and has the pursuers Mallorca, Leganes and Espanyol Barcelona in the neck.
Opponent Valencia meanwhile is a pursuer itself: “Los Che” still want to go to Europe in the upper tableau in 8th place. For this undertaking they need a victory to intercept Real Sociedad, Getafe, Villarreal and Co.
At Eibar vs. Valencia is a tip on the outcome of the game hard to hit, because there is a lot at stake for both teams – consequently the game will be close and competitive, because neither team can afford to lose a point.
Only one win out of ten games, five of the last eight games were even lost: The SD Eibar trundles towards relegation. Due to the poor yield of the past weeks and months, the Basques are only 17 points ahead of the relegation ranks.
The last two appearances in the games against Athletic Bilbao (2: 2) and in Getafe (1: 1) were a little encouragement: Although neither game was won, one scratched at the victory.
In the derby against Bilbao, Eibar even led up to the 81st minute, in the visit to the Champions League aspirate Getafe, the team coached by Jose Luis Mendilibar even scored the supposed winning goal three minutes before the end – however, the goal had a marginal offside decision by the VAR no stock.
Eibar could have won twice with more Fortune, but the point wins also give hope for the future, as they came against teams in the same table regions as the next opponent Valencia.
Winning today would have been a huge step. We did not manage to distance ourselves, explained assistant coach Andoni Azkargorta, who represented head coach Medilibar on the sideline during the 1-1 draw in Getafe because it was blocked. “We have one point more, but one game day less. If you want to get out there, you have to win, ”Azkargorta added.
The assistant coach knows that Eibar will fight relegation “until the last day”, but is very optimistic about the rest of the season. The team is committed, we give everything. This path will lead to our salvation. A win for the relegation endeavor should finally be won against Valencia.
While Eibar is fighting relegation, opponents Valencia are trying to reach the European Cup ranks. In the best case, of course, the targeted Champions League rank four, but this is already seven points away.
This is also due to the three games without a win last. This small negative run was ended last weekend with an important 2-0 home win against Osasuna.
This success gives the bats hope in the fight for Europe, as the opponents Real Sociedad, Getafe CF and Villarreal CF keep dropping points. Real Sociedad and Getafe, in particular, have not even started after the restart. Both teams, which are currently in the table ahead of Valencia, were not able to win La Liga after the restart.
The constant blunders of the competition represent the chance for Valencia to climb to 5th place with a win in Eibar. “We are fighting for a place in Europe, we will do everything we can to get the three points,” said defender Gabriel Paulista before the visit to the Basque Country.
The duel with the SD Eibar will be “the next very difficult game,” said Paulista, “because Eibar needs the result very badly.”
Despite being seven points behind in fourth place, Paulista has not yet written off the premier class. “We will continue until the last matchday, we know what we can achieve. Of course we will fight until the last game to try to qualify for the Champions League again. ”
