Form, team news, and predicted lineups for Eibar vs Mallorca
This should be a very close game, so let's take a closer look at both teams to understand their situation better:
The well-known team that is often moving up and down between La Liga and La Liga 2 is once again on the good path of reaching the top flight of Spanish football. At the moment, Eibar is second in the standings with 42 points from 22 games and they are only three points behind Almeria in the first place. So, we could see them in La Liga again next season.
Meanwhile, the team will try to eliminate Mallorca from the cup. They will be without Venancio and Sielva in this game, who will need some time to recover from injuries. The team's striker Franchu could play, but it's likely to early for him after he's been out with an injury.
Eibar predicted lineup:
Yoel – Tejero, Burgos, Atienza, Arbilla, Tono – Quique, Munoz, Exposito, Stoichkov – Blanco
With just one win in the last six games in La Liga, along with three losses and two draws, Mallorca has been struggling lately. Overall, the team is still in 15th spot in the league, but they are getting too close to the relegation zone for comfort since they are now just four points ahead of the first team in it.
In addition to their poor form, Mallorca had a few coronavirus cases recently. However, many of them will be available for this match, with the exception of Hoppe and Kubo. Raillo is also out with an injury and we will probably see a few more changes since this is a cup game.
Mallorca predicted lineup:
Reina – Maffeo, Valjent, Russo, Costa – Sanchez, Bataglia – Kang-in, D. Rodriguez, Sanchez – A. Rodriguez
