Team News: Eibar
Iván Ramis (Knee Injury) and Anaitz Arbilla (Knock) won’t be able to feature for Eibar gaffer José Mendilíbar. Sergi Enrich will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We think that Armeros will probably go for a 4-2-3-1 formation this time featuring Marko Dmitrovic, José Angel, Pedro Bigas, Esteban Burgos, Roberto Correa, Pape Kouli Diop, Sergio Alvarez Diaz, Takashi Inui, Fabian Orellana, Pablo De Blasis and Sergi Enrich.
Team News: Osasuna
Osasuna manager Jagoba Arrasate has a number of players out of action. Robert Ibáñez (Gastric problems), Facundo Roncaglia (Muscle Injury) and Chimy Ávila (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We’re of the thinking that Los Rojillos appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-4-2 formation by sending out Sergio Herrera, Nacho Vidal, Unai Garcia, David García, Antonio Latorre, Roberto Torres Morales, Iñigo Pérez, Oier, Rubén García, José Manuel Arnáiz and Enric Gallego.
Osasuna could find themselves struggling to find the net against this Eibar side who should end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’ve gone for a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 advantage for Eibar at the conclusion of the game.
Should be interesting.
