Both Eibar and Espanyol have flattered to deceive so far, this season go head to head at the Ipurua Municipal stadium with both knowing a defeat here could see them edge towards that dreaded relegation zone.
Eibar had been enduring a very poor season despite hammering Real Betis 5-0 last time out, while Espanyol come into this match on the back of the thriller 3-2 win against Tenerife in the Copa Del Rey and also beating Getafe days before.
Quique Sanchez Flores’ men have had trouble winning away from home, with no win away from the RCDE stadium this season. Sunday’s clash could see Espanyol extend the five points they’ve collected so far out of seven games.
For the Los Armeros injuries have played a significant part in their poor start to the season however new summer signing Ivi has been an astute signing in recent weeks. He’s created goals in each of Eibar’s last two matches and will be a definite threat on Sunday afternoon.
Eibar are fighting for their fifth win this season and aiming to move far away from the relegation zone though Espanyol who are also fighting for their fifth win despite losing their last three away matches.
