Match Preview

Despite losing heavily in their last home league game, Eibar are usually strong on home soil. Indeed, ‘Los Armeros’ have lost just four of their last 19 top-flight home fixtures (W9, D6, L4), though the hosts are yet to enjoy a half-time lead at home this La Liga (LL) campaign.
Ironically, each of the last five LL H2Hs have seen the home side on the day go into the interval with a clean sheet, but Eibar’s current top-flight H2H record against Villarreal (W3, D3, L4) is an issue in itself. Three of those four defeats saw them lose the second half 1-0.
Villarreal have won just five of their last 21 LL away fixtures (W5, D5, L11). However, their opponents’ meek first-half performances could be a weak spot, and Villarreal have scored more LL away goals in the first half (six) than any other side.
Nine of Villarreal’s last 11 league away fixtures have been settled by a one-goal margin. However, if they do win here, it could be with a clean sheet as ‘The Yellow Submarine’ have kept one in each of their last seven LL away victories.
Players to watch: Eibar’s Fabián Orellana has netted three goals so far this LL campaign, but he is yet to score in the opening 30 minutes.
Villarreal striker Gerard Moreno is the joint-top scorer in LL with seven goals so far. Five of them have come in the first or last 15 minutes of play.
Stat attack: Four of Eibar’s last five LL home fixtures have featured over 2.5 goals. though only three of those fixtures have seen both sides score.
None of the five LL H2Hs at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium have been settled by more than a one-goal margin.
Two of Villarreal’s three LL away defeats this campaign saw them lose despite scoring first inside the opening five minutes each time!
