Our prediction for this match:
Eibar and Swansea City square off against each other at Kufstein-Arena in what is expected to be a very interesting friendly game. Los Armeros suffered a 3-2 loss to fellow La Liga side Real Sociedad at the weekend, but they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Takashi Inui is no longer part of the team, but experienced attacker Charles could pose a big threat for Swansea City defenders. The Swans, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss Yeovil Town in their first pre-season friendly and, no doubt, they are eager to get back on course. Seeing that both teams are likely to go for a win in Tuesday’s football match, a lively contest is on the horizon and we predict that both sides are going to find the net at Kufstein-Arena. It has to be noted that the two sides have never met before.
