Eibar can be satisfied with a point last time out on the road against much favored Barcelona, in a match where expectedly, one side dominated.
They somehow “survived” the first part of the match when the hosts missed a penalty and had one goal disallowed due to offside, and surprisingly took the lead first in the 57th over Kike, but the pressure of Barcelona was simply too great, as only ten minutes later, they conceded an equalizer.
The visitors were really lucky to walk away with a point, as they were completely outplayed, but managed to defend for the rest of the match. Eibar is currently at 16th spot on the table, being close to a danger zone, as only a point separates them and relegation placed Valladolid.
Left-back Arbilla (13/0) is out injured, as well as right-back Correa (8/0) and another left-back Rodrigues (11/1).
Granada somehow managed to take all three in their latest clash against Valencia when they come with a 2:1 victory at home.
Both sides were able to score during the first part, while in the second we witnessed more of an unsportsmanlike behavior than real football. The visitors received two red cards in the 70th and the 73rd, while the hosts had their exclusion in 76th when Duarte was sent off. The home side still had a numerical advantage, which they managed to turn into a goal in the last minutes of the match and took a victory in this very strange match.
Granada, overly looking, is appearing good this season, currently being at 7th place, only one point behind European-placed Barcelona.
Defensive midfielder Milla (12/1) was tested positive, while right-back Foulquier (13/0) and central defender Duarte (13/1) are suspended. Midfielder Montoro (7/1), offensive Machis (13/2) and right-back Diaz (3/0) are injured.
A tough one is highly likely
Eibar did get the result they wanted against Barcelona, but are yet to convince fully and perform in a positive manner in continuation. With that being said, the value still remains with Granada, as they are looking much better this season, and have a nice chance for a victory in this one, at least in my opinion.
