Eibar vs Levante: On-form Granotas face Basque trip

Eibar vs Levante – Ipurua – Sunday 9th December – Kick off 11am UK time

The league’s form team Levante will aim to keep their strong run going when they face the long trip north to take on Eibar on Sunday afternoon.

Over the last eight games, Levante top the form table with 17 points in that time, including their 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao on Monday night.

Eibar on the other hand are feeling a bit defeated after losing 1-0 at Rayo Vallecano and then exiting La Copa with an aggregate defeat to Segunda side Sporting Gijon in midweek. Their last game at Ipurua in La Liga however, ended in a 3-0 win over Real Madrid.

The two teams produced seven goals in their meetings last season, Eibar coming from behind to draw 2-2 at home with Levante winning 2-1 in Valencia.
