MARK O’Haire (@MarkOHaire) is back in La Liga for his European NAP this week with a juicy odds-against shot.
Eibar v Valencia | Saturday 19.00 | Sky Sports 5
Eibar’s rise into the top-half of the La Liga standings remains one of the biggest and best talking points from across the European game this season.
The tiny town from the north of Spain with a 6,000 capacity stadium continue to upset the odds and boast the dubious honour of being the highest-placed Basque side in the league, as we approach the winter break.
Last weekend Gaizka Garitano’s side put the shutters down and took a point away from Sevilla, traditionally one of the toughest grounds to visit in the Spanish top tier. But Armeros return home on Saturday to face Valencia and we should see a return to the open, attacking side of Eibar again.
Betfair make Both Teams To Score an 11/10 shot and that’s a price that deserves plenty of interest. The hosts have notched in 10 of their 15 league outings this season.
Since failing to net against Deportivo on home soil back in September, the only fixtures that saw Armeros fail to trouble the scorers have come away to Barcelona, Bilbao and Sevilla as well as at home to Real Madrid.
Valencia make the journey to Ipurua and Los Che have scored in all bar one away trips and in 12 of their 15 La Liga matches this season. Five of the Bats’ seven away days have featured both sides scoring and the chances of that tally increasing on Saturday look far greater than the 11/10 odds on offer.
