The Yellow Submarine are currently fifth in the table, two points clear of sixth-placed Real Sociedad, while Eibar occupy 13th ahead of the final set of fixtures in La Liga.
Villarreal will enter this weekend's clash off the back of successive defeats, including a 2-1 loss at Real Madrid on Thursday night, which saw Los Blancos secure the title with a game to spare.
The Yellow Submarine have been in impressive form since returning to action after the lockdown period, though, and are in charge of fifth position as they bid to secure a return to the Europa League.
Fifth would be considered a huge success considering that they finished 14th last season, and the fact that Sociedad are away to Atletico Madrid on Sunday means that Villarreal might not need to pick up a positive result here in order to secure the position that they currently occupy.
Javi Calleja's side will not be taking any chances, though, and will fancy their chances of overcoming an Eibar side that have only won three of their 18 away league matches this season.
That said, Villarreal have only won eight of their 18 La Liga games on their own patch this term, boasting just the 11th-best home record in the division, which is a surprise considering their spot in the table.
Eibar, meanwhile, will enter Sunday's clash off the back of successive league victories over Espanyol and Real Valladolid, which has helped them into 13th position in the table.
Jose Luis Mendilibar's side cannot finish higher than 13th as they are four points behind 12th-placed Levante, but they could drop as low as 16th if other results go against them this weekend.
Eibar have now been present at this level since the 2014-15 campaign, and they have actually claimed top-half finishes in two of their last three seasons, which is an indication of their credentials.
Los Armeros will certainly be eyeing their 12th La Liga win of the season this weekend and could do the double over Villarreal, having recorded a 2-1 victory in the reverse match back in October.
