Eibar are currently 15th in the league table, three points clear of the relegation zone. Given the congested nature of the standings, however, a single win could take them as high as 11th.

Eibar play Navalarnero in the Copa del Rey this coming Sunday before hosting league leaders Atletico Madrid at Ipurua the following Thursday.
