Eibar and Cádiz meet at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurúa, in a match for the 8th round of LaLiga. There is no recent record of direct confrontations between these two teams, who have not played a game in the last 3 years. The last time they met was on 08‑03‑2008, in a match that ended with the final score: Eibar (1‑0) Cádiz. Cádiz presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor, so in this game the home factor may be decisive.
The home team is currently in 11th position, with 8 points won, after 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they drew at home against Osasuna by (0‑0). In the last match, they won away against Sevilla by (0‑1). This is a team little affected by the home factor, that is, it presents similar results at home and away, since in the last 30 games it has recorded 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses as a visitor, with 15 goals scored and 25 suffered; against 4 victories, 6 draws and 5 defeats in his stadium, with 16 goals scored and 14 suffered. For the championship, Eibar won 2 points out of 12 possible, after 2 draws and 2 defeats in the last 4 games they played in their stadium.

Eibar comes to this game after a 0x1 victory in the visit to the Sevilla stadium, thus adding to the third consecutive game without losing in La Liga: the only goal of the team was scored by Kike García. Very possibly we will have to see the local team organized in 4-4-2, with Kike García and Takashi Inui being the most advanced men in the team: the first athlete mentioned is Eibar’s top scorer, with 3 goals scored. It should be noted that the local club presents some difficulties in maintaining possession of the ball and maintaining the tactical organization. For this game, coach José Luis Mendilibar cannot count on Pedro Bigas, Recio, Sergio Cubero and José Angel, all with physical problems.

This is a team that curiously tends to achieve more positive results as a visitor than at home, since in the last 30 games they have registered 7 victories, 4 draws and 4 defeats as a visitor, with 15 goals scored and 11 suffered; against 3 victories, 6 draws and 6 defeats in his stadium, with 11 goals scored and 16 suffered.
