Our football match prediction:
Eibar have been in a thrilling form in 2017, but Sevilla proved to be a big catch for los Armeros in Saturday’s football match. Jose Mendilibar’s men suffered a 2-0 loss to los Sevillanos at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, but they still have chances of booking their place in European competitions. Eibar recorded three wins in previous four league fixtures and seeing that they scored seven goals in last two games at their Estadio Municipal de Ipurua, we predict that they will return to winning ways on Matchday 23. Malaga have been struggling on the road this season and it has to be noted that los Boquerones are eyeing their first away win of the season. In previous two meetings between the two teams in the Spanish top flight Malaga emerged triumphant, but we believe that Eibar are capable of putting an end to the negative trend.
