  • Eibar have conceded at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 league matches
  • Eibar have failed to score in 4 of their last 6 La Liga matches against Athletic Club

THE PREDICTION

Eibar are sliding down the Primera at an alarming rate having lost five of their last six games and they desperately need to halt this poor run. They made a dreadful start against Real Madrid at the weekend finding themselves 3-0 down in 37 minutes and they cannot afford to start so slowly here. They face an Athletic side that will likely rotate here but they have a good squad with plenty of options. It may even work in their favour and they are capable of coming away from this local away day with at least a point so consider them draw no bet.
