Sevilla have been playing well and will be looking forward to pushing Barcelona and stretching Atletico Madrid towards the top of the table to stay within touching distance with the top 2 in the League. Sevilla to do that have been in good form in front of their own net with a lot of their games seeing goals with an average of 3.27 goals per game which involve Sevilla. Sevilla have particularly been strong at home winning 8 out of their last 10 games in front of their home fans, netting 21 goals in those 10 games while conceding 11 goals. Sevilla have beaten Real Madrid, Malaga, Atletico Madrid, Lyon, Las Palmas, Deportivo Alaves among side who have come to their home floor and that will come them lot of confidence when Eibar come to town.
Eibar come into this encounter establishing a 4 game unbeaten run into this encounter. They have recently beaten Granada, Valencia and Deportivo while drawing against Atletico Madrid. Eibar will look at their recent goal scoring form where they have scored 26 goals in 22 games this campaign and will be aiming to push on for a win that could take them ahead of Villareal into a Europa League spot for next season. Eibar’s games have also been heavy scoring with an average of 3 goals per game that have been in this game. Eibar have relied on Sergi Enrich and Pedro Leon who have hit 16 goals so far this campaign.
This game looks to be a more open game with both teams look to scoring goals and in particular with Sevilla having one eye to their Champions League encounter in mid-week; I expect them to win this game but possibly with Eibar finding the back of the net.
