Villarreal and Eibar meet this weekend with both sides eager to register their first win of the new La Liga campaign.

A new-look Villarreal were held to a 1-1 draw with Huesca, 24 hours after Eibar's goalless result against Celta Vigo. The Yellow Submarine have the luxury of Europa League football this term, something Eibar are striving towards.

How will they fare against one of Spain's top sides here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Villarreal vs Eibar Betting Tips

After a mixed bag of pre-season results, Eibar were held to another draw – their third successive one, including friendlies – at home against Celta Vigo last weekend. Central midfielder Papakouli Diop was sent off late on after picking up two bookings, meaning the 34-year-old will miss out through suspension for this fixture.

Takashi Inui and Edu Exposito were among their disappointing performers, so it wouldn't be surprising to see head coach Jose Luis Mendilibar make some changes here. Eibar's 2-1 win over Villarreal last October was their first since early 2018 in a competitive H2H matchup that they historically are trailing (five defeats, three draws, four wins).

Interestingly, Unai Emery has a slight edge (W5, D2, L4) against Mendilibar in their meetings too – with an almost identical record from one less game played between the managers. Having made his return to Spain's top-flight last weekend, the 48-year-old goes in search of his first victory since April 2016.

Francis Coquelin's injury is not thought to be as serious as first feared, but the former Arsenal and Valencia man is nonetheless sidelined this weekend. Vicente Iborra is likely to partner Dani Parejo in central midfield, while the two-man attack of Gerard Moreno and Paco Alcacer may start.

Villarreal vs Eibar Correct Score Predictions

Eibar will fancy their chances of a result at Villarreal's expense here, at an early stage in the season where both are trying to establish momentum. I'm inclined to back the hosts: with quality in wide areas including Samuel Chukwueze and Moi Gomez, the visitoes could be in trouble.
