Eibar prepare for this match following a 1-1 La Liga drawn match against SD Huesca.

Fewer than three goals per match were scored during 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Eibar have taken part. In terms of the goal distribution in this period, their opponents scored a total of 5 while Armeros managed the sum of 4. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward here, of course.
Leading up to this clash, Eibar:
- haven't won against Getafe in their last 7 league games.
- are without a home win in the past 5 league matches. That's never good.
Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Villarreal in La Liga action, Getafe will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that game, Getafe managed 44% possession and 13 shots on goal with 5 on target. The scorer for Getafe was Mauro Arambarri (16'). On the other side, Villarreal CF had 9 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. Paco Alcácer (11'), Manu Trigueros (17') and Gerard Moreno (62') scored for Villarreal.
José Bordalás's Getafe have fired home a total of 7 times throughout their previous six matches. The aggregate of goals that they have conceded during those same matches comes to 9.
Their previous form shows that Getafe:
- remain unbeaten by Eibar when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
- are without an away win for the past 9 league games. Who knows how long it might last, too.

Team News: Eibar
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the lone fitness concern for the Eibar gaffer José Mendilíbar to contend with from of an almost fully healthy group. José Ángel (Ruptured cruciate ligament) misses out.
Team News: Getafe
Due to a completely healthy group ready to go, Getafe manager José Bordalás has no fitness concerns whatsoever before this match.
We think that Eibar will have to perform well to put one past this Getafe side who we think should emerge victorious.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 winning score for Getafe at the end of the 90 minutes.
Should be interesting.
