Eibar will be looking to consolidate their place at the top of the table
Eibar are currently top of the table, one point ahead of Almeria in 2nd. Gaizka Garitano’s side have been in inconsistent form of late, having won only two of their last five games. They will look to bounce back with a win against Las Palmas on Friday.
Las Palmas, on the other hand, are currently 7th in the league, with a win potentially taking them up to 6th. Garcia Pimienta’s side have been in great form of late, having won their last four games on the trot. They will hope to take that momentum into the game against Eibar on Friday.
Both sides are looking to win the game for different reasons and that should make for an interesting matchup.
