Sevilla vs Eibar Match Previews
Julen Lopetegui’s side subdued Leganes 3-0 at Estadio Municipal de Butarque the last time out with midfielder Oliver Torres shining with a double for the visitors.
With that win, the cub based in Seville snapped four-straight draws in their last five matches in the league as they now have 57 points after 33 matches, and are two points behind third placers Atletico Madrid. Sevilla also lead fifth placers Villarreal by three points as the league winds down to its last five matches.
Sevilla’s four previous draws were 1-1 at Levante, 0-0 at home against Barcelona, 2-2 at Villarreal and 1-1 at home against Real Valladolid.
Eibar are on a mission to avoid being demoted as they are in 16th place with 35 points and six points clear of the relegation zone. Eibar are just behind on goal difference to 15th placers Deportivo Alaves and by a point to 13th placers Real Betis.
Los Armeros lost 2-0 at home to Osasuna and saw their four-game unbeaten streak ended. Before that loss, Jose Luis Mendilibar’s side strung up two straight wins, 2-1 at Granada and 1-0 at home over Valencia. Those wins came after two successive draws, 2-2 at home against Athletic Club and 1-1 at Getafe.
Sevilla clawed back from 0-2 down to force a 2-2 draw with Eibar in their last La Liga duel held at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Late goals from striker Wissam Ben Yedder (88th minute) and midfielder/winger Pablo Sarabia (92nd minute) saved Sevilla from the claws of defeat.

Real Madrid vs Eibar Prediction
• Sevilla comfortably beat Leganes 3-0 on their last match. They are still undefeated since the resumption (W2, D4). That being said, they drew 4 matches so that’s 8 still points dropped. They were ahead of Atletico before the league was suspended, but they have since been taken over by Atletico on the 3rd spot.
• Eibar was beaten by Osasuna on their last match. However, even with that lost, they are still actually a pretty decent team since the resumption. On their last 5 matches, they’ve won 2 and drew 2. They are still battling for relegation with only 6 points clear from Mallorca.
• Sevilla will host relegation-threatened Eibar. They will want a payback as they were beaten by Eibar 3-2 on their reverse fixture. I’m picking Sevilla to cover the handicap here.
