If you’re struggling to choose a bet for the Eibar vs Malaga duel, our predictions and tips for this match might be helpful to you:

Eibar to Win

Although the guests have done much better recently compared to the earlier games in the season, they still remain in the relegation zone, while Eibar is sitting at the very top right now.

So, it’s clear that Eibar is the more likely winner in this game and since they are also hosting the match, we don’t see any other outcome than a win for Eibar on Sunday.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the previous five head-to-head meetings between Eibar and Malaga have gone under 2.5 total goals and we can see the same happening in their next duel as well.

After all, Eibar averaged 1.91 goals per game in La Liga 2 this season, while Malaga averaged 1.95 goals per game in the league so far, which bodes well for our prediction.

Stoichkov to Score at Any Time

Eibar scored 25 goals in their 22 games in Segunda this season, so they haven’t been that prolific on the offensive end. Still, one name stands out in their team when it comes to scoring and its Stoickhov.

Although Stoichkov is not related to the Bulgarian legend and he’s actually Spanish, his seven goals have helped Eibar get to the top of the league and we can see him adding a goal or more to his tally against Malaga.

Eibar vs Malaga preview: Can Eibar stay at the top?

Eibar

With 40 points from 22 games, Eibar is currently sitting at the top of the standings in La Liga 2 and the team is once again looking ready to get promoted to the top flight. However, the same was last season when Eibar lost promotion in the last round and then failed in the playoffs, so their fans are hoping for a different scenario now. Meanwhile, the team has no injuries at the moment, but Peru Nolaskoain is suspended.

Malaga

After spending most of the season in the last place in the standings in Segunda, Malaga is now ahead of Ibiza after they only lost once in the last six games. The team also notched a couple of wins and three draws in that period and now they are just four points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone. However, the team still has four players on their injury list, while Genaro Rodriguez and A. Escassi Olivia are suspended.
