This Spanish side Sevilla has already achieved their first goal for the season…
Which was getting into the Champions’ League group stage.
It wasn’t easy but that objective is already achieved.
Sevilla is still strong. They are a team with a good roster that opted for a slightly different transfer policy this year,
securing the return of some players who had already played in Spain before such as Banega, Nolito, Jesus Navas and some others.
Sevilla has 4 points in 2 matches. They’ve tied against Espanyol at home 1-1, but then they travelled to Getafe and won 1-0. Just before their European encounter it is important to win,
but they already know they will be without Banega, who is suspended and will miss this match.
Eibar has made a peaceful campaign last season and this season their goal is to avoid relegation. It is a very combative team that is strong by its collective instead of its individual quality.
Eibar has 2 Portuguese players on the team. Paulo Oliveira, a defender who left Sporting to come to Eibar and has been important for the team and the forward Bebé
who is trying to secure his place at Eibar as one of the better attacking options.
Eibar took advantage of this international break to play a friendly against Bordeaux, as a way to maintain the competitive rhythm of their athletes.
Eibar has won 1-0 away at Málaga and then lost at home against Bilbao, also 1-0. On that match, the midfielder Joan Jordán Moreno was sent off so he will miss this encounter.
Sevilla vs Eibar – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Sevilla, after the home draw against Espanyol, can’t slip up and drop points again so this match is important for them,
since, after winning at Getafe 1-0, this is the ideal opportunity for them to stabilize and confirm their good momentum.
Sevilla usually plays attractive and very flashy football at home, playing offensively and putting a lot of men on the attacking front.
Eibar will be more defensive and sit back more, but they are still a dangerous team and they already won at Málaga.
In any way, I expect a good performance from Sevilla and a win against this Eibar.
