Out-of-sorts Eibar welcome Athletic Club to the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua, hoping to bring an eight-game winless run in their La Liga (LL) H2Hs to a halt (D3, L5).
After suffering five defeats from their last six league fixtures (W1), the hosts enter this round frantically looking over their shoulders, as they sit just two points clear of relegation-threatened Mallorca. Each of their six results (win/loss) during that period has produced over 2.5 goals, with half (three) of them yielding the identical 2-1 scoreline. Eibar’s dip in form has seen them go from four consecutive LL home matches without a loss (W3, D1) to back-to-back defeats, with four of those six games featuring precisely three goals. Los Armeros will face a daunting prospect of improving their home form, as they take on a side they’ve failed to beat in three successive top-flight home H2H meetings (D1, L2).
On the other hand, the visitors have gone from four consecutive league defeats to three straight matches without a loss (W2, D1), with four of those six results yielding a single-goal margin. But, Los Leones have managed only one victory in five LL road trips since the turn of the year (D2, L2), conceding at least once in each of those games. Additionally, Athletic’s problems in the final third have seen them score over 1.5 goals in just three of 14 BL away matches this season, with 57% (eight) of 14 goals they’ve notched up across those fixtures coming in the first half of play.
