Eibar vs Ibiza prediction, preview, team news and more | Segunda Division 2021-22
Ibiza will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the 2021-22 season at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua where Eibar await them for a clash in the Segunda Division.
Surprisingly, the Celestes are the only side in the Spanish second-tier yet to taste a defeat after seven games. But that doesn’t mean they’ve been overly impressive.
Juan Carcedo’s side has seen only two wins during that run, drawing all five other games, in what’s been an interesting run for them so far.
Their most recent victory came only last weekend when the Balearic Islands side defeated Burgos 2-0 at home, courtesy of goals from Mateusz Bogusz and Ekain Zenitagoia.
Just two positions below them in sixth place is Eibar, who’ve accumulated an identical number of points but trail them courtesy of an inferior goal-difference.
Los Armeros were relegated into the second-tier after seven years in La Liga. Now they’re aiming to make a quick return to the top-flight, having started the new campaign brightly.
Gaizka Garitano is the new man in-charge, succeeding the popular Jose Luis Mendilibar, who’d led the side for six years from 2015.
But after the club’s relegation last season, the Spaniard opted against renewing his contract and stepped down.

Eibar vs Ibiza Prediction
Both sides are unbeaten in their last few games, so expect a tough encounter.
However, a leaky defense in both camps means the side with the more cutting edge has the chance to walk away with all three points.
