Eibar heads into Monday’s game with only 3 wins in their 11 appearances so far this season in the league.
However, two of those three wins came within the recent five La Liga clashes in their schedule.
They will return home after a successful trip to Betis, in which they won with a 0-2 scoreline.
With only one win in their recent five fixtures in the campaign, Valencia doesn’t pose a huge threat to the home team for the upcoming clash.
The visitor has been winless for the past two matches, following a narrow 0-1 loss at home to the likes of Atletico Madrid in the league schedule.
Cote and Quique Gonzalez are currently injured for SD Eibar and will not be able to play a part against Valencia this weekend. The Basque outfit might also have to do without Paulo Oliveira going into this game.
Valencia’s star forwards Denis Cheryshev and Lee Kang-In have tested positive for the coronavirus and will not be able to play a part in this fixture. Jose Gaya and Jasper Cillessen are also key absences for Valencia going into this game. Hugo Guillamon is suspended for Los Che and will have to be replaced in the line-up.
Only three of their last 12 clashes have ended in a draw. Their previous encounter gave a 1-0 home win for Eibar. The host has recorded four of the last five overall wins. Both teams have scored in four of their last five fixtures. The host has been unbeaten for the past five home matches.
