Eibar are currently 16th in the table, having picked up nine points from their nine La Liga matches this term, while Getafe sit two points above their opponents this weekend in 10th.
Eibar have not operated outside of Spain's top flight since the 2013-14 campaign, but they finished 14th last season after claiming ninth and 12th in 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively.
The early indications are that it could be a tough campaign for Los Armeros, who are currently 16th in the table, just three points above the bottom three, and they have played a game more than 18th-placed Levante.
Jose Luis Mendilibar's side impressibly won 1-0 at Sevilla on October 24 but lost 2-0 at home to Cadiz in their next game before drawing with Huesca before the international break.
Eibar are yet to win a single home match this season, while they have only been victorious in one of their last eight La Liga fixtures on their own patch, which is a concern ahead of Sunday's contest.
Getafe, meanwhile, have only picked up one point from their last three league matches and entered the international break off the back of a 3-1 home defeat to Villarreal.
A record of three wins, two draws and three defeats from eight matches has seen the capital outfit collect 11 points, leaving them in 10th position in the table heading into the next set of fixtures.
Getafe are only three points off fifth-placed Granada, though, and will be hoping to improve on last season, when they finished eighth, missing out on a spot in the Europa League in the process.
Jose Bordalas's side are yet to win on their travels in the league this term, but they picked up a point against Valencia in their last away clash and will be eyeing another positive result on Sunday afternoon.
Getafe have actually not lost to Eibar in any competition since November 2015 and recorded a 1-0 victory in the corresponding clash between the two sides in 2019-20.
Eibar La Liga form: LWDWLD
Getafe La Liga form: WLWLDL
The hosts have no other injury concerns heading into the contest, though, and it would not be a surprise to see Mendilibar stick with the same XI that started against Huesca before the international break.
Jaime Mata started on the bench against Villarreal last time out but should return to the side here, while Allan Nyom is expected to switch from full-back to the right side of midfield to allow Suarez to return.
Eibar possible starting lineup:
Dmitrovic; Pozo, Oliveira, Burgos, Arbilla; Alvarez, Edu; Gil, Inui, Rodrigues; Kike
Getafe possible starting lineup:
Soria; Suarez, Rodriguez, Dakonam, Cabaco; Nyom, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Cucurella; Hernandez, Mata
We say: Eibar 1-2 Getafe
Getafe will feel that they are due a win in Spain's top flight after a disappointing run of form, and we fancy the visitors to triumph narrowly on Sunday afternoon as Eibar's home record is far from convincing.
