Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Villarreal will be looking to retain their place in top four with a win over out-of-form Eibar on Sunday afternoon. The Yellow Submarine proved their worth in the 2-2 draw with Barcelona as they came from two goals behind to share the spoils with the league leaders and the visitors are certainly capable of beating los Armeros at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua. Jose Luis Mendilibar’s men head into Sunday’s football game hit by injuries and suspensions and given that the hosts are on a six-match winless run in the league, we predict that the Yellows will record their fifth away win of the season. Marcelino’s men are after their first ever victory at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua, but they are superior to Eibar and, taking everything into account, away win should be considered. A man to watch in the away side will be Nigerian striker Cedric Bakambu, who impressed in the 2-2 draw with Barca.
