In the Spanish La Liga it is extremely exciting in the early stages of the young season. So far, no team could really settle. Even the top clubs like Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid or Barcelona have had to give up an unusually large amount of feathers. The Sevilla Fútbol Club, which wants to return to the road to success on Thursday evening, also belongs to the top group with a total of nine teams.
Eibar vs Sevilla Today’s Betting Predictions
In the game of Eibar Vs. Sevilla believes the odds of the bookmakers, then this venture seems highly probable, because an Andalusian away-to-home result is expected with a probability of 43%, while the odds on a home victory of the underdog imply only a probability of 29%.
The Sociedad Deportiva, from the small Basque city of Eibar, is one of only two teams left after five games, and still waiting for the first three in the new season. So far, there were two draws for the blue-red and already three defeats, where it must be the previous year’s twelfth benefit that four of the first five matches took place in a foreign land.
Whether alone due to the home advantage now before the encounter Eibar vs Sevilla are encouraged to predict the hosts, but may be doubted, after all, won the Blanquirrojos so far all three away games in the current La Liga season and received it not a single goal. For this reason, an Eibar Vs. Sevilla tip towards the guests definitely a promising alternative.
Eibar – Statistics & Current Form
Similar to many other top leagues in Europe, the Spanish La Liga can also be described as a “three-class society”. In addition to the absolute major football powers from Barcelona or Madrid, there is on the one hand a broad midfield, on the other hand, but also a lower layer, which are mainly the not financially embedded on roses risers.
Also in the third of three category is the small Basque club SD Eibar. All the more surprising is the fact that the team, the 2012/2013 still played in the third division, now holds in the sixth year quite confidently in the upper house. Last year, it was enough for twelfth place after 38 match days. This year the kick-off did not go according to plan.
From the first five matches, the team of coach José Luis Mendilibar took only two meager points. Interesting: In all three defeats, the Basques always scored at least one hit. In the two point wins, however, it was after 90 minutes 0: 0 respectively.
It should also be noted that “Los Armeros” have completed four of their five games abroad. The only home game was lost 2-1 against Espanyol Barcelona. How important a good home record for the current penultimate table is, is shown by a look at the balance sheet from the past season.
With nine wins, six draws and four defeats, Eibar took 33 of the 47 points in front of their own fans. But: One of the only four bankruptcies conceded the Mendilibar-Eleven calculated against Sevilla. In addition, the team from 2018/2019 is barely comparable to the current squad.
Because leaders such as Joan Jordán, Ruben Pena, Marc Cucurella or Pablo Hervias have left the club in the summer to other league rivals, the authorities were forced to sign a total of eleven new players. At the moment it seems that the club, which has the smallest stadium in the league, did not like the motto quantity instead of quality.
All in all, we are therefore skeptical of whether the uncertain Basques on Thursday evening are in a position to put the favorite guest from Andalusia in their place. We would compare before the game Eibar vs Sevilla at least waive a tip in favor of the hosts. Sergi Enrich will be injured. Behind the use of Ivan Ramis is still a question mark.
Expected formation of Eibar:
➤ Dmitrovic – Cote, Arbilla, Oliveira, Blasis – Inui, Diop, Escalante, Orellana – Charles, Garcia
➤ Coach: Mendilibar

Sevilla – Statistics & Current Form
The Sevilla Fútbol Club can be quite satisfied with the previous yield after five match days. With three wins, a draw and a defeat, the Andalusians have so far recorded ten out of a possible 15 points on the credit side.
The Blanquirrojos were even ahead of the top of the table last Sunday, but at home to Real Madrid, the UEFA Europa League record winners narrowly lost 1-0.
In front of almost 43,000 spectators, the Red and Whites had more possession over long stretches of the game, however, the high-profile scoring chances remained largely absent. French World Champion Karim Benzema scored the 1-0 opening goal for the Madrilenians in the 64th minute, but three minutes before the end they were lucky enough to have Chicharito Hernandez equalized on penalties as they were offside.
The fact that the “Sevillistas” suffered their first competitive defeat of the current season and at the same time the first loss under new coach Julen Lopetegui just before home crowd at the Juan Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, incidentally, was not really unexpected, because in the first few weeks The new season left the previous year’s foreign visitors a more constant impression.
All three previous away games in La Liga were able to make the Lopetegui protected victorious. Sevilla Fútbol Club won 2-0 at Espanyol Barcelona, before two tight 1-0 wins over current leaders Granada (as of Wednesday morning) and Alaves. Also for the group stage opener in the Europa League confirmed the Nervionenses their good away form in 3-0 at the Azerbaijani champion Qarabag Agdam.
What also stands out is the fact that the former coach of the Spanish national team, who swung as a club coach short time for Real Madrid the scepter and also a successful era at FC Porto coined, has managed within a few weeks to stabilize the defensive.
The Andalusians last year conceded the most goals from the top flight, the Czech keeper Vaclik had in five league games 2019/2020 only twice behind him. Only unbeaten Athletic Bilbao are even better off with only one goal caught. The good defense work is therefore an argument against Eibar. Sevilla to take a closer look at the odds for an away win.
In a way, the compact order from which the Sevillistas want to succeed, but at the expense of their own offensive. Only five goals scored offer plenty of room for improvement, although of course a 1-0 win brings three points and – in positive terms – profited on the first matchdays from a tremendous effectiveness or efficiency.
Perhaps what speaks against the fifth away three of the red-white, is the suspected rotation of coach Lopetegui. After the long trip to Azerbaijan last Thursday and the exhausting match at home against Real Madrid changes in the starting eleven are to be expected and that although the coach injury could draw from the full.
Expected lineup of Sevilla:
➤ Vaclik – Escudero, Carrico, Kounde, Navas – Torres, Fernando, Banega – Nolito, Chicharito, Haddadi
➤ Coach: Lopetegui
Last matches from Sevilla:
⚽️ 22.09.2019 – Sevilla vs Real Madrid 0: 1 (La Liga)
⚽️ 19.09.2019 – Qarabag Agdam vs. Sevilla 0: 3 (Europa League)
⚽️ 15.09.2019 – Alaves Vs. Sevilla 0: 1 (La Liga)
⚽️ 30.08.2019 – Sevilla vs Celta Vigo 1: 1 (La Liga)
