Granada play host to Eibar in La Liga soccer action from the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes on Sunday afternoon.
Granada come into this match in 9th place with 43 points and a record of 12 wins, 7 draws and 12 losses after extending their three game winless run with a scoreless draw against Leganes last time out. In the draw with Leganes, Granada were held down for the better part of the match, holding onto just 41% possession with 4 attempts at goal and just one shot on target compared to 59% possession, 10 goal attempts and 3 shots on target for Leganes. Leganes had the best opportunity of the match, receiving a penalty in the 65th minute, but Leganes would fail to cash in, contributing to the scoreless draw at full time. Carlos Fernandez leads Granada in scoring with 7 goals while Darwin Machis has 6 goals and each having 3 assists this year. Victor Diaz has 5 assists to lead Granada this season while Angel Montoro and Roberto Soldado each have 4 assists on the year. Rui Tiago leads Granada in goal, conceding 1.1 goals per 90 minutes with 11 clean sheets in 30 league appearances this season.
Eibar on the other hand, sit in 17th place on 32 points, six points clear of the relegation zone with a record of 8 wins, 8 draws and 15 losses after a 1-0 win over Valencia in their last match to make in three games unbeaten for Eibar in a row. Eibar went ahead in the 16th minute thanks to a Valencia own goal, and despite having just 34% possession in the match, Eibar would hold a 5-0 advantage in regards to shots on goal. Valencia would try to get back into the match, but Eibar would ride the early goal all the way to the finish line for the upset win. Fabian Orellana leads Eibar in scoring with 8 goals along with a team-high 6 assists while Charles has 6 goals this season. Marko Dmitrovic is Eibar’s top goalkeeper, conceding 1.5 goals per 90 minutes with 8 clean sheets in 30 league appearances this season.
I get Granada being favored here as they’re having the better year, but Granada’s also stumbled in their last three matches after winning right out of the restart and have just been slumping period. Eibar on the other hand, have had a solid run lately and have played four teams in the top 10 of La Liga since the restart with some decent results in there. Bottom line is that Eibar need wins to create space from the bottom of the table and the relegation zone. It could be different if Granada had fans in the stands, and I get that Granada is fighting for Europa League for next year. But Eibar has never lost to Granada, going 5-2-0 in seven all time meetings including outscoring Granada 7-0 in the last two meetings. I’ll take a stab at Eibar to steal another win on the ML at decent plus money and given the recent history I’ll put some side action on Eibar to win with both teams to score – no for decent plus money as I could see this being a 1-0 or 2-0 game.
