Eibar vs Girona Preview

 

Eibar vs Girona

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Ipurua Municipal Stadium

Date: 21st December 2017

Kick-off time – 18:30 GMT

These teams are two of the most outstanding small teams not just in Spain but in Europe and their impressive showings will have inspired several other small teams across the world.

Unlike Girona, Eibar have spent some time in the La Liga.

This season is Eibar’s fourth consecutive season – they have never played Girona however and with both sides playing positive attacking football, this game promises to be interesting.

Both of these teams have a similar style of play especially when it comes to scoring goals.

Girona could arguably be said to have copied Eibar as both of these teams like to score their goals from crosses and this sees most of their balls been played to the wing.

This is not the most famous style of football; however, it has been bringing results.

Eibar have picked up some form recently following a slow start to the season.

They now average 1.63 goals per home game and have scored at least two goals in their last four home league games.

Their 5-0 win over Real Betis has done their confidence a world of good as they have gone on to net 12 times and collect 13 points from their last five league games.

Girona are also not in the worst state at the moment as the Catalans have collected five wins and one loss from their last 8 games.

They tend to score more goals when they play away from home as they have netted 1.43 times per away game this season and have found the back of the net at least once in their last ten league games.
