Preview: Eibar vs. Getafe - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's La Liga clash between Eibar and Getafe, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Both Eibar and Getafe will be looking to return to winning ways in Spain's top flight when they lock horns at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua on Sunday afternoon.

Eibar are currently 16th in the table, having picked up nine points from their nine La Liga matches this term, while Getafe sit two points above their opponents this weekend in 10th.


Match preview

Eibar have not operated outside of Spain's top flight since the 2013-14 campaign, but they finished 14th last season after claiming ninth and 12th in 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively.

The early indications are that it could be a tough campaign for Los Armeros, who are currently 16th in the table, just three points above the bottom three, and they have played a game more than 18th-placed Levante.

Jose Luis Mendilibar's side impressibly won 1-0 at Sevilla on October 24 but lost 2-0 at home to Cadiz in their next game before drawing with Huesca before the international break.

Eibar are yet to win a single home match this season, while they have only been victorious in one of their last eight La Liga fixtures on their own patch, which is a concern ahead of Sunday's contest.

Getafe, meanwhile, have only picked up one point from their last three league matches and entered the international break off the back of a 3-1 home defeat to Villarreal.

A record of three wins, two draws and three defeats from eight matches has seen the capital outfit collect 11 points, leaving them in 10th position in the table heading into the next set of fixtures.

Getafe are only three points off fifth-placed Granada, though, and will be hoping to improve on last season, when they finished eighth, missing out on a spot in the Europa League in the process.

Jose Bordalas's side are yet to win on their travels in the league this term, but they picked up a point against Valencia in their last away clash and will be eyeing another positive result on Sunday afternoon.

Getafe have actually not lost to Eibar in any competition since November 2015 and recorded a 1-0 victory in the corresponding clash between the two sides in 2019-20.

Eibar will be unable to call upon either Sergio Cubero or Cote for this weekend's contest, while Recio remains a doubt due to a muscular problem.

The hosts have no other injury concerns heading into the contest, though, and it would not be a surprise to see Mendilibar stick with the same XI that started against Huesca before the international break.

On-loan Newcastle United forward Yoshinori Muto is pushing for a role in attack, but Kike is again expected to lead the line with support from Bryan Gil, Kevin Rodrigues and Takashi Inui.

As for Getafe, Mathias Olivera is likely to miss the next few weeks with a muscular problem, but Damian Suarez is back from a one-game suspension and will be back in the starting XI.

Jaime Mata started on the bench against Villarreal last time out but should return to the side here, while Allan Nyom is expected to switch from full-back to the right side of midfield to allow Suarez to return.

Nemanja Maksimovic and Mauro Arambarri will also be in the team, meaning that David Timor could be the player to drop out of the starting side.

Eibar possible starting lineup:
Dmitrovic; Pozo, Oliveira, Burgos, Arbilla; Alvarez, Edu; Gil, Inui, Rodrigues; Kike

Getafe possible starting lineup:
Soria; Suarez, Rodriguez, Dakonam, Cabaco; Nyom, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Cucurella; Hernandez, Mata


SM words green background

We say: Eibar 1-2 Getafe

Getafe will feel that they are due a win in Spain's top flight after a disappointing run of form, and we fancy the visitors to triumph narrowly on Sunday afternoon as Eibar's home record is far from convincing.
