Eibar welcome Getafe to the Ipurua as both teams resume their 2020-21 La Liga campaigns on Sunday. Eibar sit in 16th place after nine games, while Getafe are in 10th place with 11 points.

Los Armeros followed their 2-0 loss to Cadiz at home with a disappointing 1-1 draw away to newly-promoted Huesca. Eibar were indebted to goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic, who made some crucial saves as Esteban Burgos and Rafa Mir got on the scoresheet.

Getafe only had Mauro Arambarri's golazo to celebrate in their 3-1 loss to Villarreal at home prior to the international break, with the Azulones looking second best for much of the game.

They've looked poor ever since their shock 1-0 win over Barcelona at home, with a 1-0 loss to Granada and a 2-2 draw to Valencia resulting in a drop down the table.


Eibar vs Getafe Head-to-Head

Eibar and Getafe have played out five draws against each other in their last 10 games, with Getafe winning three and Eibar two. The Basque side's last win came at home in 2015, with Getafe's last trip to the Ipurua ending in a 1-0 win last year.

The last time these two teams met, they played out a 1-1 draw at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez in June this year.

Eibar vs Getafe Team News

Eibar

Jose Luis Mendilibar can call upon midfielder Recio once again, but Cote remains out with a long term injury.

The Eibar boss is likely to stick with the same team that faced Huesca, with the rest of his squad fully fit.

Injuries: Cote

Doubtful: None

Suspensions: None

Getafe

Damian Suarez is back from suspension and ought to return at right-back, allowing Allan Nyom to move to the other wing, as left-back Mathias Olivera is out with an injury for the next few weeks.

Injuries: Mathias Olivera

Doubtful: None

Eibar vs Getafe Prediction

Eibar are yet to win at home in La Liga this season, and with Getafe travelling poorly this campaign, it seems this game is up for grabs.

Given how often this game finishes as a draw, we can't rule that result out, particularly as it's hard to see where the goal will come for either side.

Prediction: Eibar 0-0 Getafe
