During the week, the clubs from La Liga went to the Spanish Cup for the first time. Some teams had plenty of problems against underclass clubs. Nevertheless, it is now time to focus on the tasks of the 18th game day.
Eibar vs Granada Betting Predictions and Odds
This is where the Eibar and Granada meet in the Basque Country. At least the bookmakers see advantages in the prediction from the host.
For this reason, at the clash between Eibar and Granada, a tip only brings odds of 2.11 on the home win. The Basques had to deal with Logrones in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday. Eibar left no doubt about the progress and celebrated a smooth 5-0 home win.
In the Spanish league, on the other hand, things have not been exhilarating for Eibar in the recent past, but they did draw in Bilbao last weekend. The promoted Granada also had to compete in the cup, but found it difficult against outsider CE L’Hospitalet and only made it into the second round of the cup in extra time.
In La Liga, Granada had to endure a disappointment because there was an annoying home defeat against Levante. Therefore, both teams can use a win well at the weekend so that the spectators can look forward to a competitive game.
Eibar – statistics & current form
Things have not gone particularly well this season for the Basques in the Spanish league. After all, after 17 games, Eibar is in 16th place in the table and only two points ahead of a relegation zone. Overall, Mendilibar’s squad scored only 16 points through four wins and four draws and lost over half of all games.
Eibar gained some additional confidence during the week in the Copa del Rey when Logrones won 5-0. It was the first win since November when Leganes won 2-1.
After that, Eibar had a weak phase and suffered four defeats in a row. In this the Basques showed blatant weaknesses on the defensive and on the other hand the bottom line was only enough for a single goal.
“We all rowed in the same direction in Bilbao. I was happy with my team and the draw at San Mames. ”
Last weekend Eibar failed to score again at Athletic Bilbao, but at least the defense was much better and so goalkeeper Dmitrovic was able to keep his box clean. The Serbian keeper only managed this in four league games this season.
Eibar’s home record is not particularly impressive, even if the team has already taken three wins. There were five bankruptcies at home, while the Basque have never played a draw at home this season. The team will miss the suspended Fabian Orellana on Friday evening and the injured Estaban Burgos will also not be available.
Probable lineups of Eibar:
↳ Dmitrovic; Cote, Oliveira, Arbilla, Correa; Inui, Diop, Escalante, Leon; Enrich, Garcia
Last games from Eibar:
⚽️ 12/17/2019 – SD Logroñés vs. SD Eibar 0: 5 (Copa del Rey)

Granada – statistics & current form
The promoted Granada started in the Spanish league like the fire brigade and was leader after the tenth game day. After that there was a significant drop in performance among the Andalusians and the team only got one point from five league games. Of all things against top team Atletico Madrid it was enough for this draw.
Then Granada immediately suffered another defeat in Bilbao and slipped to tenth place in the table. The fans were not enthusiastic about this, even if such a placement in the middle of the table is actually absolutely fine for a newcomer.
On the penultimate matchday, Granada hosted Leganes and celebrated a 3-0 home win in this encounter. In the home stadium, the balance of the promoted team can be seen, because the team of coach Martinez already scored 16 points in front of their own spectators.
However, Granada disappointed in the last home game against Levante (1: 2). On the other hand, it has only been enough for Granada for eight points.
“We had enough chances for a better result against Levante. But I was still satisfied with my team’s game for a long time. ”
It therefore fit into the picture that the Andalucians during the week in the cup damned themselves at the lower class CE L’Hospitalet.
Granada even had two goals at half-time, but struggled again in the second half and forced extra time with goals from Ramos and Soldado. In this Granada was the better and fresher team and so thanks to another hit by Adrian Ramos it was enough for a happy 3-2 victory and associated with it for the next round of the Copa del Rey.
With a view to the weekend, the coach will probably have to do without the injured Quini, German Sanchez and Angel Montoro. In addition, the stricken Fede Vico and Yangel Herrera are questionable. In the game between Eibar and Granada, a tip may bring quite high odds up to a 4.30 due to the tense personnel situation.
Probable lineup of Granada:
↳ Silva; Neva, Martinez, Duarte, Diaz; Donalons, Eteki; Vadillo, Fernandez, Puertas; Soldado
Last games from Granada:
⚽️ 12/17/2019 – L’Hospitalet vs. Granada 2: 3 (Copa del Rey)
⚽️ 12/14/2019 – Granada vs. Levante 1: 2 (La Liga)
⚽️ 07.12.2019 – Granada vs. Alaves 3-0 (La Liga)
⚽️ 12/01/2019 – Athletic Bilbao vs. Granada 2-0 (La Liga)
⚽️ 11/23/2019 – Granada vs. Atletico Madrid 1-1 (La Liga)
