      « Reply #1 on: May 14 2016, 05:30 »

In 3 head‑to‑heads in the last 3 years, the away team won 2, tied 0 and lost 1. The home/away factor is worth special atention, since although this is a match between 15º and 12º of the league table, it’s also a match between the 10º best team in home matches and the 14º best in away matches.

In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Barcelona by (5‑0), after in the previous match they have won (1‑0) at home, against Sevilla. This is a team that usually plays better at home, where they have won 29 points, against only 11 points in away matches. In the last 10 home league matches o Espanyol has a record of 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 15 points out of 30 possible.

They have conceded the first goal in 21 of their 37 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 3.

      Espanyol comes to this match lacking motivation, after a 5-0 home loss against Barcelona. The home team usually presents a lot of defensive aggressiveness. They usually prefer attacking through the right wing, taking advantage of the offensive quality of Javi López. They do, however, have a few weaknesses, particularly in defensive set pieces. One of the greatest qualities of Espanyol is their ability to find spaces to shoot from distance. Arbilla will be the only absent player in this match, due to an injury.

      Analysis of Eibar

      The away team is currently in the 12ª position of the league, with 43 points won, after 11 wins, 10 draws and 16 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against o Sporting Gijón, by (2‑0). In the last match, they tied in a home match against o Real Betis, by (1‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 14 points in away matches and 29 points at their stadium, with 26 goals scored and 22 goals conceded at home, against 21 goals scored and 35 conceded in away matches. In the last 10 away league matches o Eibar has a record of 1 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses, so they have won 5 points out of 30 possible.

      In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 9 away matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 16 of the last 18 matches for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 37 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 15 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Eibar comes to this match after a 1-1 home draw against Betis. Although they are a modest team, Eibar has had an interesting season so far, having achieved a few good results against strong teams. They usually play with defensive strategies, defending close to their own goal, to try to explore counter-attacks. However, when in advantage, they usually have a hard time holding on to the lead. The away coach should have all players available, with the exception of Jaime, who is recovering from an injury.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that there will be a few goals in the final score. Five of the last 6 home matches of Espanyol and the last 5 away matches of Eibar have ended with over 1.5 Goals. Therefore, we expect an open match with goal opportunities for both teams. Moreover, both teams are no longer fighting for any goals in the league, which means they are playing under no pressure and shouldn't present too many defensive cautions. This means they will concentrate a lot more in offensive than in defensive roles.
