Ipurua hosts a derby for permanence
Chow life changes. Four years ago, on April 27, 2017, the Eibar I was visiting for the first time Mendizorroza in a match in which the gunsmiths were gambling their options to continue fighting to enter Europe Alaves He had on the horizon the final of the Copa del Rey that played a month later.
Neither of them achieved their goals, but they radiated optimism. Today, in the other field, in Ipurua, the sensations will be very different. The derby has the urgencies that the fight for permanence implies.
The Eibar He has everything against him and not even winning the five days of the League would ensure his permanence. But as long as the numbers do not say otherwise, the illusion is still present. However minimal it may be. You have to burn every last one of the cartridges. What is clear is that the train for permanence will not wait any longer. Win at Alaves It could bring you closer to the miracle. Losing would end up sinking him to the bottom of the rankings.
On the other hand, the Alaves it is also played a lot. The babazorros are in sixteenth position and win at Eibar it could put them four points above relegation, in addition to the fact that, being the gunsmiths a direct rival, they could virtually eliminate one of their rivals from the fight for permanence. With Calleja as coach, Deportivo Alavés does not know defeat and they seek to maintain that streak.
The coach will not be able to count on several regulars – he has six injured players – and will take two from the subsidiary to Eibar. In eleven hardly changes are expected. Martin Aguirregabiria will start again on the left wing due to the absences, and everything indicates that Edgar mendez will repeat ownership in the left attack zone.
Changes in Eibar
The Alaves was the bottom of the category three weeks ago and the arrival of Lane It has completely revitalized you. The Eibar wants to look in the mirror slime fox. Staying alive involves achieving three points that would keep you last, but that would allow you to Getafe hoping to continue in the fight.
Mendilibar will make changes again and could change the drawing to input Enrich next to Kike Garcia. An offensive eleven, with Bryan gil on the left and with the possible return of Edu Exposito.
