Team News: Eibar
The Eibar boss Joseba Etxeberria has no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game thanks to a completely healthy squad available to choose from.
Team News: Racing Ferrol
Thanks to a mainly healthy group, there is just the lone fitness worry for the Racing Ferrol gaffer Cristóbal Parralo to be concerned with. Luca Ferrone (Meniscus Damage) won’t be playing here.
We’re inclined to think that Racing Ferrol certainly have the ability to score a goal against this Eibar side, although that may not quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We reckon that it will be both teams to score in a 2-1 advantage for Eibar when the full-time whistle blows. Should be a good one.
