The recent performance of Eibar
Eibar has its worst start to the season since reaching the elite division of Spanish football four years ago. With eight points (two wins, two draws and seven losses) he ranks seventh in the standings, the first out of the relegation zone. He started the day with two of advantage in comparison with Alaves, eighteenth, and Las Palmas, nineteenth. Thus, it can enter the field in the sticking region.
The club has not won for more than two months. The last success of the Eibar was the 1 to 0 marked in the leganes on August 15. Since then, in nine matches, he has drawn twice and suffered seven defeats.
Administrator of a rather lean cast, coach Jose Mendilibar has three medical problems for the confrontation on Monday. They are in the infirmary in process of recovery of injury the goalkeeper Yoel, who is considered titular of the team, but has not yet acted in season 2017/2018; defender Ivan Ramis (four Spanish league games without a goal) and striker Pedro Leon (no performances).
The current form of Betis
Betis, who spent much of the previous season close to the relegation zone and finished in the middle of the standings, has a much higher tournament this year. He has scored 17 points (five wins, two draws and four defeats) giving signs that he can covet a place in the Europa League.
He completed eleventh round in eighth place with two points down compared to Sevilla, sixth and last in the European tournament qualifying zone.
In the last four rounds, however, he showed signs of falling to conquer only four of the 12 points played. Sign that coach Quique Setien needs to seek solutions to the defensive system that has been leaked 20 times. The good offensive production, of 21 goals in 11 games, has not been enough to mask the failures of the defense.
The situation is especially bad when Betis acts away from their domains. In this situation the Sevilla team won only four (one win, one draw and three losses) of the 15 points played. It is only the fourteenth best in the category with six goals scored and ten conceded.
Riza Durmisi (seven games in the 2017/2018 Spanish League without a goal) and Zouhair Feddal (seven matches, two goals) were among the reasons for the increasing number of defensive failures. Injured, they were out of the last four games of the greenback, who won twice, drew another and suffered a loss.
They are expected to be released to perform on Monday. However, this will depend on reassessment of the medical department.
History of the matches Eibar vs Betis
Two wins for each side and two equalities. This is the retrospective of the duel that had the first edition in the season 2000/2001 of the Second Division of the Spanish Championship.
Even if he plays away from home and does not present the best of the visitors, Betis, possibly with his title defense, should be considered the best choice for an Eibar that does not show the same performance of previous seasons. The quotation for this hypothesis is 2.80 in Bet365. Success of home owners pays 2.45 and draw shows return of 3.30.
