Sevilla is desperately trying to hold on to the promotion spot in the league this season. Their dip in points is not helping and visit from Eibar will keep the hosts on toes with the latter’s recent triumphs in the league laliga.
Julen Lopetegui will be content as his team is on a 10-match unbeaten run across all major competitions, however six of them have ended in a draw.
Their previous encounter was on the road and they defeated Leganes with a 0-3 scoreline.
The host has been on an unbeaten run at home in the campaign. They have lost only 2 of their 16 home matches until now in the league, which will give them breathing space in the game.
Eibar recorded their fifth loss within their last ten matches in their previous encounter. They lost at home to Osasuna in their previous clash with a 0-2 score on the board.
They started post lockdown with a loss but were unbeaten for the next four clashes until this loss.
Sevilla will be without the services of Jules Kounde due to the yellow card that the central defender picked up in the 3-0 win over Leganes on Tuesday night, meaning that Sergi Gomez should come into the XI.
Ever Banega, Fernando and Munir El-Haddadi should also all return to the starting side, while Luuk de Jong is likely to replace Youssef En-Nesyri at the top end of the field.
Lucas Ocampos has been Sevilla’s standout player this season with 14 goals, and the Argentina international will again feature in a wide area.
As for Eibar, Gonzalo Escalante and Ivan Ramis are both on the sidelines, but the Basque side did not pick up any fresh injury concerns in the defeat to Osasuna last time out.
Sergi Enrich came off the bench on Thursday night and could now earn a spot in the starting XI, while Papa Diop is also an option for change in the middle of the park.

Sevilla vs Eibar Prediction
Sevilla will enjoy their home ground advantage along with the unbeaten streak in the campaign. Their 22 points lead over the visitors will also add to their advantage in the game. Besides, Eibar is not at their best when playing away from home.
Even though Los Armeros stayed unbeaten in the recent two tours in their schedule, they have won none of their 8 h2h visits to Sevilla since 1997. With the home team in an unbeaten run, the odds will be against the visitors to change the trend.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters at 1.44 odds to earn decent returns from the encounter. Since their recent five h2h matches saw both teams score, the tip for a BTTS with 2.00 odds will come in handy for the punters.
1. Sevilla win.
2. over 2.5 goal
