Eibar is coming to this clash after a minor setback in their last away fixture against Mirandes when they took only a point in a 3:3 draw.
The match was heading in the right direction for the guests, as they had a 1:3 lead after fifty-three minutes of play, but apparently lost their focus in the continuation, and allowed the hosts to reduce from the penalty in the 72nd and completely equalize the result in the last minutes of the encounter.
Eibar is positioned at the 5th spot in LaLiga 2 rankings, overly looking, appearing quite well, as they haven’t tasted defeat in their last seven encounters.
Left-back Tono (7/0) and central defender and team captain Arbilla (4/0) both continue to miss out.
Girona failed to be more creative last time out on the road to Oviedo when they took only a point in a 0:0 stalemate.
The guests did have a significant ball possession advantage during the whole encounter, but obviously lacked more creativity, while the hosts accepted to be involved in a more passive encounter, so it wasn’t surprising that we haven’t witnessed any action in goal-terms here.
Girona is currently at the 16th spot in LaLiga 2, having eight points collected so far in the campaign.
Left-back Junca (4/0) is out injured, as well as talented forward Moreno (1/0).
Almeria performed quite well in their last clash on the road against Alcorcon when they appeared quite confident and recorded a convincing 0:4 victory.
They had a 0:3 lead after the first part and pretty much removed all questions about the winner, but we’re still not done, as they managed to be effective one more time in the 69th, not leaving much room for the home side to be somewhat competitive in this encounter.
Almeria is at 3rd spot in the general standings, being three points in deficit compared to the leaders from Ponferradina and looking like one of the favorites to promote.
The hosts keep missing defenders Carrico and Bunuel (4/0), as well as offensive Villar, who didn’t perform this season.
Almeria failed to be more creative in their last LaLiga 2 match against Zaragoza, as they come with a close 2:1 loss away from their home.
The guests conceded first in the 10th minute but responded in the same way over Robertone in the 34th minute. Almeria held the ball to their feet for most of the time during this clash, but their lack of creativity cost them, and with another one conceded in the 80th minute suffered their second consecutive defeat.
They are at 3rd spot in the general rankings, still with a chance to catch up with second-placed Mallorca, having eight points less in comparison.
Central defender Fernandes (11/0) should be back after suspension, as well as midfielder Morlanes (29/1). Offensive Corpas (32/11) is suspended this time.
Almeria showed some improvement recently, as they were able to record two consecutive victories in LaLiga2, last time on the road to Girona with a narrow 0:1 result.
The second part of the clash proved to be crucial, as the guests looked far more aggressive with the ball to their feet, scoring the only one in this clash over Sadiq in the 72nd, maybe deserving to put at least one more to the scoreline in this clash.
Almeria occupies 3rd spot in the overall standings, having the same amount of points as Espanyol, and a ticket for direct promotion to LaLiga, but having game less which makes this match so important now.
