Our match prediction:
After suffering a loss in each of their last three league games, Eibar will be looking to return to winning ways in La Liga when they welcome relegation threatened Levante at their Estadio Municipal de Ipurua. Los Armeros produced a fine display against Atletico Madrid at the weekend, but despite taking the lead in the second half of the game, the Basques eventually suffered a 3-1 loss to Diego Simeone’s troops. Eibar occupy eighth place in the standings but the team’s goal remains unchanged; Mendilibar’s men aim to secure yet another top flight survival and a win over Levante would definitely help them move one step closer to turning their dream into reality. Los Levantinos failed to make life difficult for Barcelona at the weekend (0-2) and given their poor away record, the rock-bottom side are unlikely to spoil Eibar’s party at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua. You should have in mind that Rubi’s troops are on a four-match losing run on the road.
