Eibar vs Villarreal
Competition – Spanish Primera
Stadium – Ipurua
Date: 31st October 2019
Kick-off time – 18:00 GMT
Villarreal will take to the field in this game against Eibar looking to continue their impressive start to the season.
The Yellow Submarines didn’t start the season in the best of fashion after they collected just two points from their opening 3 league games.
They have however become a better team since then and come into this game having won 5 of their last seven league games.
They won their last league game 4-1 at home against Alaves and that was their 3rd win in 5 home games. They remain unbeaten at home this season.
However, their travels haven’t brought as much joy as their home ground has brought this season. They have suffered 3 losses on the road so far ahead of this game but earned an impressive 0-1 win at Espanyol two match weeks ago.
They haven’t quite found joy on their last visits to Eibar but they are in-form and could get something out of this game.
Eibar’s form doesn’t show a lot for Villarreal to worry about ahead of this game. The home side has lost two of their four home games this season. Overall, they have tasted defeats 5 times already this season and they would be desperate for the points in this game.
Eibar is separated from the relegation zone by goal difference and they haven’t scored in their last two league games making this a tough test on paper.
