Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Amorebieta and Eibar square off against each other at Lezama Facilities in the La Liga 2 round 7. Amorebieta suffered an expected 1-0 loss to Leganes in the suburbs of Madrid, with the team dropping to the penultimate position in the standings. The newcomers scored exactly two goals in each of their previous two home games, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the Basque derby.
Los Armeros, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Real Sociedad B (3-2) and Sporting Gijon (3-2), and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Summer signing Stoichkov looks unstoppable at the moment, and we predict that the former Sabadell man will pose a big threat to Amorebieta’s back-line in Saturday’s local derby. This will be the first meeting between the two sides in the Spanish second tier.
