EIB vs GEF Fantasy Prediction: Two clubs in a soup take on each other looking to get the monkey off their back.
After an electric start to the ongoing edition of the La Liga where they won three of their opening four matches including a 1-0 win against Barcelona, things have been on a fast downward spiral for Getafe. The club has not registered a win in its last three matches, underwhelming displays which have seen the club be pummeled.
Plummeting into 10th spot with those routings, Getafe know the rot needs to be stemmed and stemmed at the earliest plausible for the side. The side is in dire need of a win as it looks to steady a ship which is being persistently rocked by rough water.
In the midst of this quandary, Eibar is just the ideal opposition Getafe would have wanted to come across. In 16th place with just two wins from 9 matches, Eibar find themselves precariously sitting on the anvil of the bottom three.
A failure to come up with goals has hurt Eibar calamitously and will cost them today as well with Getafe recording a win in the contest.
Cote will be out of action for Eibar due to his ongoing injury.

Dmitrovic, Pozo, Oliveira, Burgos, Arbilla, Alvarez, Edu; Gil, Inui, Rodrigues, Kike.

Getafe – Rodriguez: 3 Goals.
EIB vs GEF Fantasy Prediction
Eibar will be well aware that the only way they can salvage anything from today’s contest is by fortifying their defensive setup. With Getafe not the most ominous of attacking sides, Marko Dmitrovic can end up making full use of his expansive skill to quash Getafe’s attacks.
Despite shipping in goals left, right and centre off late, we are still going to be indulging ourselves in a triad from the visiting team. Getafe have conventionally been a staunch defensive unit, a side which can easily douse an Eibar side which has a measly 6 goals in 9 outings.
It will see us opt for the trio of Damian Suarez, Mathias Olivera and Dakonam Djene from the club. The hosts elsewhere will be represented by CB Esteban Burgos with him having thumped home two goals for his side.
Allam Nyom has over the course of the last year rediscovered himself as a player. He’s taken to his new wide role as a fish takes to water, one where’s been allowed to express himself to see him record the one assist.
Marc Cucurella will be his partner for the encounter with Mauro Arambarri with the one goal closing out the trio from the side. Eibar’s selection will come in the form of Kevin Rodrigues whose selection is attributed to the one goal he has.
With Getafe regressing defensively, Eibar’s Kike Garcia will be well aware that he can easily add to his three goals come today. The visitors meanwhile will see us repose faith in the services of Jaime Mata owing to his two goals for the club.
Captain and vice-captain
Those two goals will see Mata earn our captaincy while Garcia is the vice-captain.
Dmitrovic, Djene, Suarez, Olivera, Burgos, Cucurella, Arambarri, Nyom, Rodrigues, Mata, Garcia.
