As the smallest club in LaLiga, every season in which Eibar avoid relegation is an achievement. Last year, they survived comfortably in midtable and finished 12th. Every summer Eibar lose some of their best players to bigger clubs and have to replace them and this has been the case once again. Starters Joan Jordan, Ruben Pena and Marc Cucurella are all gone, which is a blow. But they almost always recruit well and have brought in some exciting prospects from the second division, especially the Deportivo duo Edu Exposito and Quique, as well as securing the return of their former star winger Takashi Inui. In the dugout, there has been continuity as Jose Luis Mendilibar is still there. After Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid, Mendilibar is the LaLiga coach to have been at his current club the longest. Eibar’s situation is an encouraging one, then. The level of quality in the squad might not have changed too much and the key will be developing chemistry between the new players, something which Mendilibar is good at achieving. One thing that hasn’t changed is the fact that Eibar still enjoy a significant home advantage. Their tiny little stadium of Ipurua is one of the most difficult away days for most teams, with fans close up to the pitch and with the long journey to get to the valley town. A weakness for Eibar could be injuries. They have several players in this year’s squad who are injury prone and that’s a worry.

Target


Avoiding relegation. The objective is always the same for this tiny club. It’s simply to stay in the division.

Season Review
2018/2019

№12: Eibar

Eibar continue to defy the odds to remain in LaLiga. The smallest club in the division put together another mid-table season under veteran coach Jose Luis Mendilibar to ensure they’ll once again enjoy first-division football. They were a fun team to watch as their style of football was quite direct, with the gameplan to get the ball out wide to the wingers and to put crosses into the box for their strikers to get on the end to. It was a very effective way of attacking as Eibar won more aerial duels than any other team in the league. Wingers Fabian Orellana and Marc Cucurella were excellent throughout the season, while full-backs Ruben Pena and Jose Angel were also important in attack, as well as in defence. Eibar’s main weakness was probably at centre-back, which is not an insignificant weakness given how important that position is. Goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic had to bail them out time and time again. Home form was important for Eibar as many teams struggle to play at their tiny Ipurua Stadium. They earned 1.0 points per game more at home than they did away, so they could certainly try to improve on the road. Overall, this was a positive campaign for Eibar and they’ll simply be happy to have avoided relegation. Avoiding relegation will be the objective again next season and it should be possible if Mendilibar stays on as coach and if they can hold on to most of the members of this squad.
