Competition: Spanish Segunda

Market: Eibar win

Odds: 4/7 @ 1xBet

Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Segunda standings, Eibar will welcome Huesca to the Ipurua Municipal Stadium on Sunday evening.

Starting with the hosts, while Eibar might have suffered play-off heartbreak last season, Los Armeros certainly aren’t showing any signs of a hangover. Last seen putting in another eye-catching performance as they secured a 2-1 win away at Amorebieta, Joseba Etxeberria’s men are enjoying a major Segunda purple patch. Opening October with a stellar 3-1 win against Mirandes, it is no secret that the Gipuzkoa-based outfit have their sights firmly set on securing a La Liga return this time around. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just a single point adrift of breaking into the play-off places, Eibar have won each of their last five straight Segunda showdowns – a run that stems back to September 9th. Smelling a golden chance on Sunday evening, Etxeberria’s side have also gained a reputation for their clinical performances in the final third. Including a routine 3-0 victory against Tenerife last month, it is worth highlighting that Eibar have notched 12 strikes on their five-match winning run.

As for the visitors, only continuing to show a string of issues since opening up the 2023/24 campaign, Huesca are enduring a real Segunda struggle. Last seen putting in another worrying display as they slumped to a 1-0 loss at home against Eldense, Antonio Hidago’s men find themselves at the heart of a relegation scrap. Opening up this weekend’s sat in the drop zone and already three points adrift of safety, the Oscenses have lost each of their last three Segunda appearances on the bounce. Opening up October with another 1-0 defeat at the hands of Sporting Gijon, Sunday’s guests have also failed to muster a single second-tier strike in over 300 minutes of action. Likewise, mustering just one win from any of their opening 10 showdowns, Huesca should also be worried by a downbeat record against the promotion contenders. In fact, along with suffering a 1-0 loss when the two sides last met back on May 27th, Hidago’s men have lost each of their previous four contests against Los Armeros by an aggregate score of 8-3.
