For all of our match predictions, pre-game poll and statistics for Getafe v Eibar, scroll down (plus the best game odds).
Getafe will be wanting a better result here following the 1-0 La Liga loss in their previous game against Villarreal.
In that match, Getafe had 34% possession and 15 shots at goal with 3 on target. For their opponents, Villarreal CF got 4 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. Yeremi Pino (79') was the scorer for Villarreal.
An interesting characteristic of recent Getafe games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
Taking their previous 6 matches leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a bet on both teams scoring would've been a loser.
Analysis of their past results shows that Getafe:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Eibar in their last 8 matches. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.
- haven't won against Eibar in their previous 2 league matches.
- haven’t won at home in the past 4 matches in the league. Their fans aren't happy.
Eibar will come into the match after a 3-0 La Liga win to defeat Alaves in their previous game.
In that match, Eibar had 44% possession and 15 shots on goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Eibar was Kike García (3', 50', 59'). Alaves got 6 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target.
The forward players for Eibar have struggled for goals in their past six games, contributing the unsatisfactory return of just 4. In those matches, Armeros have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 13. While that may be of interest, we must now wait to see if that trend will continue on in this next match or not.
Coming into this meeting, Eibar are without a win away from home in their last 12 league matches. What a terrible run of away results.

Team News: Getafe
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Getafe manager José Bordalás to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Cucho (Metatarsal Fracture) won’t play.
Team News: Eibar
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, Eibar manager José Mendilíbar has no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game.
We feel that Getafe will, in all likelihood, have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
Conversely, Eibar may well struggle to score a goal of their own but we do fancy them hitting back at some stage.
We can therefore see a comfortable 3-1 margin for Getafe at the end of the match.
