Eibar take on the visitors Granada in the round 5 match of Spanish LaLiga2. The match will be played on Monday, September 12th at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
Eibar will try to acomplish what didn't work out in the last draw. Since 2014, the Gunsmiths have been constantly, although without much success, playing in the LaLiga. But in the end, in the season before last, their long-term mentor, Mendilibar, could no longer come up with another "recipe" for salvation. Having dropped to the Segunda, the team turned from an outsider into a favorite. But the difficult race for the "passing", 1-2 place, ended in a disappointing failure: Almeria and Valladolid together collected 1 point more. And in the playoffs, starting with an away victory, the club lost to their first opponent, Girona. The new draw did not start in the best way. At home, the team took the maximum - 2-1 with Tenerife, 1-0 with Ponferradina. But away there was only a draw with Villarreal-B and a defeat to Leganes.

Granada clearly wants to return to La Liga on right away. The Nasrids were perhaps the biggest losers in La Liga last season. They fought for survival to the last, they scored 38 points - sometimes that's enough. But not in the spring of 2022 - three at once, Cadiz, Mallorca and Getafe, turned out to have only 1 point more. Of course, after the relegation, a lot of players left, from goalkeeper Mashimiliano to striker Luis Suarez. But there are also curious newcomers, first of all, a local native, Callejon, and the already quite experienced Aitor Karanka has become a new mentor. It all started with 3 wins with a total score of 7-0. And only in the last round, visiting Andorra, everything ended 0-1 in favor of the opponent.
Eibar were unbeaten in their first 9 head-to-head matches, and after a couple of draws there were 7 wins in a row. And only in the last meeting, in April last year, Granada managed to thrash the opponents with a score of 4-1. Both clubs not only want to fight for a return to the LaLiga, but in fact, in the first matches, they confirm this in practice. We recommend betting on "over 2.0 goals".
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 scored goals.
