Eibar vs Valencia: Valencia still believes in the Champions League next season

Eibar vs Valencia: Match preview

Valencia goes on a visit to Eibar for a match in which they have the imperative to win if they want to stay in the fight for the fourth position that leads to the Champions League. The match is also important for the home team. They have to break the negative series because they fell just above the zone leading to Segunda.

Eibar team news:

We have become accustomed this team to being in the middle of the table according to some unwritten rule. This time, unfortunately, the situation is different, as this team is currently in 17th place on the table. This is the last one that brings survival in the company of the best at the end of the championship.

Eibar has been playing disastrously lately, and they have been without a win in the last 5 games, while they have won only two points in the last three home matches.

They are currently three points above the place that leads to a lower rank. The question is how this team can actually cope with the pressure, especially after solid games in the first part of the season when they won most points.

The problem of this team is that they simply do not know how to play on the result. This is confirmed by the fact that only twice in the last 11 games they did not score a goal. Until the end of the championship, they have only one game against the teams that are fighting for the Champions League. That is why they may have a few easier matches ahead of their relegation competitors.

Probable lineup: Dmitrovic, Arbilla, Burgos, Bigas, Cote, Cristoforo, Escalante, Diop, Inui, Charles, Enrich.

Valencia team news:

This time, Valencia is coming to their guests. They have finally reached their first victory in the last round after a break due to corona virus. In that way they revived the fight for the place that leads to the Champions League next season.

Still, this won’t be an easy task. At the moment, fourth-placed Sevilla has as many as seven points more. In the mentioned duel, the “bats” celebrated at home against Osasauna, and that match ended with the result 2: 0.

Although a good game and a victory over Osasuna lifted the mood at Mestalla, the team simply must not allow themselves more mistakes until the end if they want to play again in the most elite competition in the world.

Probable lineup: Cillessen, Florenzi, Paulista, Guillamon, Costa, Soler, Parejo, Kondogbia, Guedes, Moreno, Gomez.

Match prediction:

Despite everything, we still expect this to be a very uncertain match. But, considering that Valencia simply has to celebrate and that the hosts are waiting for a few easier matches after this, we believe in the victory of the bats.
