On Sunday at Estadio Benito Villamarín in Seville, Real Betis will take on the brilliant Eibar. Both teams will be looking for a three points, but the guests will be very motivated to register another victory towards their Europa League dream.
Real Betis are in horrendous form and if they continue, they could be dragged into the relegation battle. However, only a few points would grant them a safe place in the middle of the table. They are on a three-game losing streak, with the most recent from the previous round against Las Palmas in Canary Islands 4-1. Their home form is in the decline, too, since they were beaten in three out of five games at Villamarin. This season, their overall home performance from 16 matches is 5 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses; Betis scored 18 and conceded 19 in the process.
SD Eibar are cruising toward a miracle. They are sitting in the seventh position with 50 points and in pretty solid form. In the last round they comfortably beat weakened Sevilla 0-2 in Vigo at Estadio de Balaidos. Eibar are on a five-game unbeaten streak and they will be looking to extend their winning streak to four games on Sunday. The guests snatched 5 victories and draws each, while they were also beaten five times in visits; they obviously prefer offensive approach as they scored 25 and allowed 23 goals. Eibar are led by Sergio Enrich as their main striker, managing to score at least two in the previous three domestic league fixtures.
