Our football match prediction:
Eibar are enjoying a season to remember. Thanks to a 3-2 victory over Villarreal at Camp El Madrigal los Armeros put an end to their four-game winless run in La Liga and they remained in the race for a place in European competitions. Eibar are four points behind the Europa League berth and we predict that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s football match against Las Palmas. Los Amarillos are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but their away record is anything but good and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Jose Luis Mendilibar’s charges. Eibar are eyeing their ninth home win of the season and they are likely to emerge triumphant in Thursday’s clash. A man to watch in the home team will be former Real Madrid midfielder Pedro Leon, who found the net in the 3-2 win over Villarrreal.
