Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Eibar will be aiming to build on a 2-0 win over Lugo when they take on Villarreal B on Friday evening. Los Armeros did well to make amends for a heavy 3-0 loss to Cartagena, and a win over the Yellow Submarine could see them climb to the automatic promotion berth. Imanol Garcia suffered an injury at the weekend, with Sergio Alvarez likely to step, while Javier Munoz is banned for the match.
The visitors, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the table and seeing that they are ineligible to participate in La Liga, Miguel Alvarez’s men have little to play for in the remainder of the season. Eibar are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and we predict that the promotion-chasing Basques are going to prove their worth on the field. Alejandro Millan could sneak into Villarreal B’s starting XI after scoring the winner against Racing Santander.
