The team led by Gaizka Garitano is on the greatest path to a swift return to the top echelons of the Spanish game. A three-pointer against the bottom-placed and already-relegated competitor is all that is required to win the league.
This makes Eibar heavy favorites, as expected, according to the bookies. However, Alcorcon startled Almeria by holding them to a 1-1 draw at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos last weekend, so you should all be careful with the stakes.
Actually, Alcorcon enjoyed a slender advantage until the third minute of added time, and they were by no means the underdogs during the entire 90 minutes of play on this occasion.
Having won once, drawn once, and lost once in their last three Segunda Division games, will Fran Fernandez’s club pull off another massive upset and put the current table-toppers on the ropes?
All eyes will be on Stoichkov, who is vying for the golden boot with Christian Stuani, who currently holds the competition’s all-time scoring record. Eibar’s 2-0 win over fourth-placed Tenerife eight days ago was a significant triumph for the Catalans.
Alcorcon vs Eibar – Betting Analysis
Two of the previous four head-to-head confrontations between these two adversaries ended in stalemates. As early as the first half of the season, Eibar defeated Alcorcon 2-1.
In March 2014, neither team scored in their lone head-to-head match at Estadio Santo Domingo. With four victories in their previous five league games, Eibar are on a roll. They were dominant in their 2-0 win over Tenerife, who were in fourth position, in the previous round.
