Eibar vs Cordoba by Neuro
Eibar is coming from a 1:1 draw away to Las Palmas last weekend. They brought up very clever tactics and generally looked well on the pitch, trying to hurt the hosts via counter attacks, but payed the price of a bit more defensive formations in last minutes, with a goal scored in the delay of the match.
With four points earned in three matches and generally against tough opponents, start of Eibar is quite promising into the new season. Team of coach Garitano plays quite smart football, trying to exploit their speed on counter attacks via attacking midfielders. However, their first home game into the new season saw them losing 0:3 against Girona and now, they will try to get the first victory in front of their crowd and at their stadium, something that was one of their strongest points in previous years. It might seem that, with the way they play, they might be more comfortable with away games, but the coach has said that the team will try to get the first home victory this season against quite a strong opponent. Home side has no problems making the squad for today's game.
Cordoba was held to a 1:1 home draw against Alaves last weekend, although they had complete control of the match from the moment they equalized and could have sealed the victory with the good phases they had in the second half. Although it was a setback, start of the season is great for them having seven points out of three matches.
Seven points earned so far confirm they high aspirations for new season, as the team will surely try to hold at the upper part of the table as long as possible and will try to get the Primera ticket somehow. Everyone in the club is satisfied with their results so far, while the administration wanted to strengthen the roster even more, with two additions at the end of the transfer window. Attacking midfielder Davila and Argentinian striker Pacheco are signed and now it's clear that their goal is promoting to Primera this season, however it's still to be seen if they can handle the pressure. Defender Lozano is injured, while midfielders Pelayo (3/0) and offensive Benja are additional absences for Cordoba, while two newest signings will probably come off the bench today.
There is no doubt that Cordoba is better side in this clash, but Eibar shows to be highly competitive too. Difficult game is in front of two sides, while the defensive game should play a big part from both sides. Closed match with few chances is expected.
