Team News: Eibar
The Eibar manager Joseba Etxeberria will be grateful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this clash thanks to a fully healthy squad ready to go.

Team News: Levante
Levante manager Javier Calleja has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Fabrício (Hamstring injury) and Andrés García (Bone edema) will miss out on this game.
We’re of the thinking that Levante might elect for a 4-4-2 formation, going with Joan Femenías, Xavi Grande, Adrián de la Fuente, Ruben Vezo, Álex Valle, Carlos Álvarez, Oriol Rey, Giorgi Kochorashvili, Oscar Clemente, Iván Romero and Dani Gómez.
Eibar can fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding against Levante, who won’t find it easy getting goals.
Accordingly, we see a comfortable 2-0 margin for Eibar when all’s said and done.
