The 2020-21 edition of La Liga is back in action with another round of matches this weekend as Valencia lock horns with SD Eibar at the Mestalla on Sunday. Both teams have struggled this season and have a point to prove this weekend.

SD Eibar are rooted to the bottom of the La Liga standings at the moment and face an intense relegation battle this month. The Basque side is three points away from safety and cannot afford to lose this game.

Valencia, on the other hand, have struggled to cope with their player exodus and are in 14th place in the league table. Los Che slumped to a 1-0 defeat against Sevilla earlier this week and will want to bounce back in this match.

Valencia vs SD Eibar Head-to-Head

SD Eibar have a surprisingly excellent record against Valencia and have won five games out of a total of 13 matches played between the two teams. Valencia have managed only four victories against SD Eibar and will need to level the scales in this fixture.

The reverse fixture between the two teams took place in December last year and ended in a 0-0 stalemate. Valencia wasted several chances on the day and will need to be more clinical this weekend.
