Villareal vs Eibar – La Liga: Villareal is one of the best teams of La Liga…
Always in the fight for a European spot. Villareal always prepares good teams and last season they were able to secure another European spot.
They are usually present on the Europa League, where they usually go far. Villareal have started off their campaign poorly and on their last match they were trounced by Getafe 4-0. Before that, they had already tied 0-0 with Espanyol.
Those two poor results were the last straw and their manager ended up being fired. Villareal already played their European match midweek with a new coach and the team got a 0-0 draw against Maccabi Tel Aviv on a match where they were slightly superior.
Eibar have the objective of ensuring maintenance in La Liga. They are a competitive team, hard to beat, especially at home. Away from home, they are more vulnerable and don’t play that well.
And the proof is that on their last two away matches, they lost by 3 goals against Sevilla and by 6 goals against Barcelona. They resented from that loss against Barcelona and on the last round, at home, when they hosted Celta de Vigo, they lost 0-4 on a humiliating loss.
They went through the worst period since the start of the season. Eibar, who has two Portuguese players on their starting XI (central defender Paulo Oliveira, ex-Sporting, and winger Bébé) who might lose their spot in the starting line-up on this encounter already.
Villareal vs Eibar – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Villareal has a good chance of returning to victories on this important match and this will be their first match at home after sacking their manager.
I see this Villareal redeeming themselves with their fans on this match against Eibar, who is going through a shaky period.
The team has been conceding a lot of goals and that has hurt the team’s performance. Individual mistakes have been the cause for many of those goals and consequent weak performances.
On this visit to Villareal, things should be very hard because, as we all know, when there is a new manager, teams always seem to react and Villareal, despite coming from a European match, should get the win in this match.
