Reason For Eibar vs Alaves Betting Tips

Eibar’s home record this season isn’t exactly sparkling with three wins and three defeats from six and they were crushed 0-4 last tie out at Ipurua by Real Madrid. Nonetheless, Los Armeros take on an Alaves side this weekend who have claimed just one point from six outings on the road this term and who are without a win in their last 11 away games. Whilst we expect a close tussle in this all-Basque clash, we’re forecasting an Eibar triumph and more travelling woe for Babazorros.

More was expected of Eibar on Matchday 13 considering they had won three of their last four at Ipurua and entertained a Real Madrid side who had recently suffered a 1-0 defeat in Palma against Mallorca.

However, Real showed their class and Eibar froze, resulting in a resounding 0-4 success for Los Blancos. The international break definitely came at the right time for Eibar on the back of that fixture, and Jose Luis Mendilibar will have been doing much to focus and prepare his squad for this Sunday’s crucial encounter with Alaves over the past fortnight.

Eibar won this corresponding fixture narrowly 2-1 last term, and it looks like a case of any win will do this time around for Los Armeros who have slipped down to 15th. Eibar still hold a six point buffer over the relegation zone, but that could soon shrink on the run up to Christmas with tough assignments against Real Sociedad, Getafe and Athletic Bilbao to come – teams all currently placed in the top seven.

Three points here will give Eibar the breathing space they need and we fancy them to hit back based on their prior victories against Sevilla (3-2) and Villarreal (2-1) at Ipurua, as well as Alaves’ dismal away form.

The visitors have been nothing short of diabolical on their travels, losing five on the spin since their 1-1 draw at Getafe in August including a 4-2 defeat at Osasuna two starts ago.

Babazorros have shipped 16 goals in total across their six matches on the road and their form is a continuation from troubles at the back end of last term when they picked up just one point from their last four away.

Garitano’s side have consequently not tasted success outside of Mendizorroza since beating relegated Huesca 1-3 in mid-March, so there’s nothing to recommend their cause this weekend despite Eibar’s embarrassment last time out.

We’re confidently predicting an Eibar triumph this weekend and we’re going for a 3-1 scoreline. The hosts bagged a total of seven goals in home games against Sevilla, Villarreal and Celta, so they should certainly be capable of getting their fair share here against an Alaves side who have conceded almost three per game this season away. Alaves have, however, scored in each of their last three on the road, so we think Babazorros are capable of a consolation with Eibar keeping just one clean sheet from six at Ipurua.
