Eibar vs Real Sociedad Match preview
Eibar is not in a good position in the league. They were winless in all but one clash in the last seven league fixtures. Their previous encounter was at home, but they still lost the match to Mallorca with a 1-2 scoreline.
The host showed better composure at home. They have lost only one of their last five home matches. In sharp contrast, Real Sociedad has lost three of their last five away matches.
It has to be noted that; the visitor has 16 points more than the host in the league table this season. Apart from the home ground advantage, which they contradict as recent matches show, Los Armeros has very little to offer for the three points.
Imanol Alguacil and his team will visit after a 1-0 loss on the road with Barcelona in their previous encounter. They were on a six-game winning streak before their visit to Camp Nou.
With an overall better performance and decent form in their trips on the road against weaker sides, Sociedad has what it takes to return home with at least something. Anyway, an interesting clash is around the corner at the Eibar stadium.
Eibar vs Real Sociedad Prediction
At first look, it is hard to find a full-time winner in the clash. Eibar is looking good at home in contrast to the troubles the visitors are having on the road. Real Sociedad will boast their overall league performance compared to the host in the bottom part of the table.
The host has lost only one of their last five h2h matches with Txuri-urdinak. Even so, Los Armeros lost their last meeting in the reverse fixture with a massive 4-1 scoreline.
The host’s recent home loss in the campaign saw them put an end to a run of four straight home fixtures without a single loss in the top-flight. However, their recent loss has put down their fire and affected the morale of the players.
Imanol Alguacil and his team come into this game having won just one of their last six road trips in the league. However, their previous away loss against the table-toppers was a narrow loss. This will put more confidence in the visiting players.
Hence, it will be safer to go with a double chance in the match. Since their recent three meetings saw both sides scoring, a BTTS will also be a good option to try for the punters.
