The Eibar sinks like a red LaLiga lantern after Monday’s defeat against Real Sociedad. With only 23 points and seven of the permanence, Mendilibar’s team looks for a miracle that allows him to continue in the elite of football in the five days that remain until the end.
The Monday the gunsmith team bent the knee again in Ipurua, a new defeat and unfortunately for those of Mendilibar, the daily bread when they have played as locals in this grade. And is that Ipurua, without an audience, is much less Ipurua. It is not scary and it has ceased to be that fortress where more than one ‘big’ had capsized.
Now Eibar is no longer scary at home. We stick to the numbers. A match of 16 has won Eibar this season in Ipurua: He has only added 9 points of the 48 possible at home. The armero team is the worst venue in the League by far and their bad numbers at home are condemning them to decline:6 home games, one win, 6 draws and 9 losses.
The Eibar is the First team that is most accusing the lack of public andIn their stadium, because Ipurua was very tight. And in recent weeks, when the Basque team has fallen into a spin, the support of their fans, Those enthusiastic seven thousand fans, it would have been a plus, a great help that now they are missing a lot.
And of the five days that remain, the Eibar still has to play three ‘finals’ at home, against Alavés, Betis and Barcelona to close the League. But without a doubt, the duel to life and death will be played by the delMendilibar next Saturday when they host Alavés in Ipurua, a direct rival in the fight to save himself. It no longer has margin. The gunsmith team must win yes or yes to try not to begin to bury the dream. They have no other choice.
