On Sunday evening, Eibar will look to boost their promotion chances when they host Segunda strugglers Huesca at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua.Eibar form guide
Joseba Etxeberria’s team are currently in seventh place in the table, just a point adrift of the play-off spots and two points adrift of the automatic promotion spots in the Spanish top-flight.
Eibar heads into this game on the back of red-hot form, as they have recorded five straight league wins, having scored at least two goals in all five victories. Last time out, they recorded a 2-1 win at Amorebieta.
The Basque team has a decent home record in the Segunda, as they have won three of their previous four league outings on home soil. Their prolific attack was a significant factor in the good home form of late, as they have scored at least twice in three out of their last four league outings in front of their own supporters.Huesca form guide
The visitors’ poor campaign continued last time out with a 1-0 home defeat against Eldense. The loss was the third straight defeat in the Spanish second tier, which means that Huesca won just one of their last 11 Segunda matches.
Their recent Segunda games have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in ten of their last 11 outings in the Spanish second tier.
Huesca have been woeful travellers in the Segunda, as they have won just one of their previous 21 league outings away from home. That run includes just one away win in the Segunda in the last five outings in the second tier of the Spanish game.What am I backing?
Eibar have been relatively strong on home soil, while Huesca have endured a difficult campaign. The bet I am backing is a relatively comfortable home victory.
