Our football match prediction:
Estadio Municipal de Ipurua will host Friday’s football match between Eibar and Real Betis. Los Armeros did well to beat Celta Vigo at the weekend and thanks to the triumph they retained their spot in the top half of the standings. Eibar have been impressive on home soil this term and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their fifth home win of the season. Real Betis head into the game following a routine 2-0 win over Las Palmas at their Estadio Benito Villamarin, but considering that the Andalusians suffered three defeats in previous four away fixtures in the league, we predict that los Armeros will emerge triumphant in Friday’s clash. Experienced midfielder Fran Rico scored a wonder goal in the 1-0 win over Celta Vigo, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. A man to watch in the away team will be Spanish veteran Ruben Castro, who has netted four goals this season.
