Eibar and Valladolid square off in La Liga soccer action from the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua on Thursday afternoon.
Eibar come into this match in 15th place on 39 points with a record of 10 wins, 9 draws and 167 losses following a 2-0 win over Espanyol in their last match. In the win over Espanyol, Exposito opened the scoring for Eibar from the penalty spot in the 25th minute and had a chance to convert a second penalty but he would miss from the spot before potting his own rebound, giving Exposito a brace with goals seven minutes apart. Espanyol would have a whopping 72% possession in the match, including 73% in the second half but Espanyol just wouldn’t be able to convert their chances, staying held off of the score sheet at full time as Eibar kept a clean sheet. Fabian Orellana leads Eibar with team-highs of 8 goals and 7 assists this season while Marko Dmitrovic is Eibar’s top goalkeeper, conceding 1.4 goals per 90 minutes with 10 clean sheets in 35 league appearances this season.
Valladolid on the other hand, enter this match in 14th place on 39 points as well with a record of 8 wins, 15 draws and 13 losses after back-to-back defeats with their last match ending in a narrow 1-0 loss to Barcelona. In the defeat against Barcelona, Valladolid gave up the lead just 15 minutes into the game and that ended up being all Barcelona would need. Valladolid would have 44% possession in the second half with 4 shots on goal, but in the end, Barca’s defensive pressure was just too much and Valladolid would be shut out and left empty-handed at full time. Enes Unal and Sergi Guardiola each have a team-high 6 goals while also being part of the five Valladolid players with a pair of assists this season. Jordi Masip is Valladolid’s top goalkeeper, conceding 0.97 goals per 90 minutes with 11 clean sheets in 35 league appearances this season.
No wonder this game is on it’s own in the early timeslot. There are literally no implications for either side here except for pride. With that said, I expect this game to be a total snoozefest and for the two sides just to play out the fixture to fulfill their contractual obligations to be there. Give me the draw as the main bet for this match as well as some side action on the correct score of 0-0 for sizeable plus money.
