Eibar vs Sevilla Prediction & Match Preview
Thursday, September 26 – 13:00 EST – Municipal de Ipurua
Eibar desperately need a win. They earned a mere two points in five games and occupy the 19th spot in La Liga as a result. Fortunately, their matches have all been extremely close. They have not lost a game by more than a single goal. They also managed to score two goals against the defensively sound Atletico Madrid. These results are to be expected as they do not have the financial power to break into the league’s top ten. The best they could hope for is to avoid relegation this season. Eibar are going to need to pick up more points if they want to succeed in doing so. Last season, Brazilian centre forward Charles finished as their top scorer with a total of 14 goals. He needs to recapture this form. One goal in four games is not going to cut it.
Sevilla had an extremely bright start to the season. They went undefeated through the first four games. Sevilla eventually lost to Real Madrid by a tight score of 1-0. They will look to bounce back and Eibar are just the team they want to see at the moment. In addition, it has been a season of new faces for Sevilla. From the manager Lopetegui to a large portion of the first team. Ultimately, it has worked out well for the new additions. They have meshed together quite smoothly and they will look to satisfy their ambitions of attaining Champions League football for next season. The latest addition to the squad Javier Hernández got off to a great start. He bagged his first goal in Sevilla colours against Qarabag FK in the Europa League. He will look to translate this success to the domestic competition.
