Eibar – Villarreal, La Liga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR EIBAR - VILLARREAL
What makes the impression of Eibar’s very different approach at home and as a guest. Like most teams at this level, Eibar looks to be more offensive, attacking, courageous and aggressive at home, and as a guest they are more defensive, reassuring and reliant on defense. They have character and often return to the match from a losing position. Eibar is a very good team when it comes to set pieces, both in attack and defense. That can be key in the match today. Eibar are also able to control the ball and generally control the game in their home games against most teams.
Villarreal have great weapons in attack. Especially in home games, they score plenty of goals, but they do not perform well as a guest. Ekambi and Gerard Moreno are the most important players in the forward positions. They alone have scored 12 goals since the start of the season. The yellow submarine crashed Alaves in the front round for another big home win. Villarreal is in a much better position and shape overall compared to last season, of course, but as a guest they still have no draw.
Expert view : The away side play offensive football and Eibar are more offensive at home, so we think there will be goals, even more so if an early goals falls to open the match. Villarreal are able to play counter attack, are quite effective, and have players who can score from long distance shots. This leads us to believe that Eibar will have serious problems in defense and will concede a goal, but Villarreal very often cannot retain their lead, and are weak at set pieces. They also allow goals from long shots, which is an ideal prerequisite for at least a goal from Eibar, too. By that logic, here we are betting on a solid BTTS at 1.72.
Villarreal’s 7 out of 10 games have so far ended with BTTS
