The La Liga fixtures come at us thick and fast this week with matches scheduled from Tuesday onwards. That’s great news for accumulator backers who can place their small stakes on big priced multiples. Many of the games will be shown live on Premier Sports and that’s also music to the ears of armchair fans eager to keep up with play. Here are our top Eibar v Villarreal betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
We focus on a match that takes place on the cusp of the weekend as Eibar welcome Villarreal to town. This looks a 50/50 on paper and really could go either way. You can pick sides and place your cash down on the match-winner prices or shoot for one of the specials. These include both teams to score, total goals, first goalscorer, handicap, half time/full time and plenty more besides.
Eibar suffered a poor start to the season and could be found down in 16th place after the first nine games of the campaign, their stats during that period reading two wins, three draws and four defeats. The locals scored 10 goals but conceded 13 and that shows where their problems lie.
Villarreal Looking to Maintain Form
During the same period, Villarreal had won four and drawn two against three defeats and that pushed them into the top four. They will be desperate to hold their ground between now and the end of the season, but much work remains on that front. Taking three points on the road would certainly aid their cause and the betting has the visitors as 13/8 favourites with Ladbrokes to do just that. The draw can be supported at 23/10 with the same firm, a home cheer marked up at 17/10. The latter is the market best price when getting your cash down at Bet365.
