Eibar v Las Palmas Betting Tips: Goals, goals, goals at Ipurua

18:30/Apr 06

Sports betting writer Bradley Gibbs takes a look at Thursday’s sole La Liga fixture between Eibar and Las Palmas.

Having suffered a 3-1 defeat on Monday night away to Celta, Las Palmas are back in action on Thursday night as they travel to take on the ever impressive Eibar at Ipurua – a match that simply screams goals.

When it comes to attacking football in La Liga this season, apart from the obvious big guns, both Eibar and Las Palmas are just about the best this league has to offer and have continuously treated their fans to some exciting stuff. Unfortunately, or fortunately if you’re a punter seeking goals, in adopting an attacking style of play, both teams, at the same time as scoring plenty, have tended to concede a fair few. The bet that stands out ahead of this fixture is ‘Over 3.5 Goals’.

Having scored 47 (Eibar) and 45 (Las Palmas), these two sides are among the highest scorers in the entire division. In fact, only the current top four teams have scored more goals. In their recent respective home and away matches, this pair have shown no signs of slowing down and have flourished in the final third with Eibar notching 12 in their last five at home, while Las Palmas have found the net eight times in their last five on the road.

In front of their own fans this season, Eibar have been impressive in collecting 27 points and have scored plenty of goals in doing so. José Luis Mendilibar’s side have scored in all but three of their 15 home fixtures, and have found the net on 24 occasions. Having scored 12 in their last five, Los Armeros have really hit their stride going forward. Given the open nature of their opponent’s play, coupled with their own attacking quality, the hosts really should be capable of causing a leaky Las Palmas defence all manner of problems here.

The Ipurua is certainly no stranger to high-scoring matches with ‘Over 3.5 Goals’ landing in six of Eibar’s home La Liga fixtures, and eight in all competitions. Las Palmas have been in a similar position with at least four goals hitting the back of the net in seven of their league fixtures away from home. Interestingly, overall, only Barcelona have been involved in more matches that contained four or more goals this season.

The main reason that Quique Setién’s Las Palmas often find themselves involved in matches where the scoreline reads 3-3 or 4-2 is their attacking nature; the visitors simply adopt a high-pressing, forward-thinking style of play which often results in plenty of goals going in at both ends. Their 18 scored on the road is more than respectable; however, their total of 34 conceded is not. Having said this, they aren’t likely to change their style any time soon. Las Palmas’ main strength is their attacking players – players such as Jonathan Viera, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Jesé Rodríguez – and they’re far more likely to win games by outscoring their opponents rather than trying to shut them out.

When these two attack-minded sides come together on Thursday evening, backing ‘Over 3.5 Goals’, at an eye-catching 2-1, is the way to go.
