Malaga vs Eibar Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
The ultimate match of the first round will take place at Estadio La Rosaleda, the home of Malaga. The hosts will take on Eibar, the team with huge ambitions but despite their huge aspirations their season is a huge question mark due to several departments.
Malaga will hope for a less turbulent season than the previous one. However, their preseason is not promising, and the pressure on the manager is massive. Malaga played nine preparatory matches and they were beaten in eight. It is a huge and disappointing number for any Malaga fan. They only managed to beat Villarreal. Although Malaga decided to face only stronger teams and avoid meeting with semi-amateur teams, eight losses from nine matches is a huge confidence blow. They conceded a goal in almost every game while only scoring three goals, which is a poor record for any team, and especially a shameful performance for a La Liga team.
Eibar enjoyed previous season. They stunned Spain with their performances and despite failing to fulfill their dream of qualifying for an UEFA competition, Eibar are expected to become a stable La Liga team in future. Their preseason was like a chess board – either black or white. They met mostly Spanish sides and neither of their prep matches ended as a draw. Potentially, that could indicate the offensive approach, but Eibar were very careful and tactical in their matches, so it’s quite likely that their manager was testing new strategies. One thing remains certain – Eibar are one of the biggest enigmas of 2017/18 Spanish league.
In the last five matches, Eibar and Malaga grabbed two victories apiece in addition to a sole draw. Eibar never won at La Rosaleda but they have been managing to score frequently, but never more than a sole goal. Read our betting preview and make right decision.
