Eibar are struggling at the moment to post points on the board, and it has been the case for almost the whole of this season. Meanwhile, Sociedad have been on fire in 2020. They even eliminated the all-conquering Real Madrid from the Copa del Rey, and that too at the Santiago Bernabeu the last week. Likely, count on Sociedad to deliver this Sunday.

Eibar vs Real Sociedad Match Preview
Eibar lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Alaves. It was their fourth winless game in a row, and highlighted the struggles the team has been going through at the moment.
They are placed 16th in the table, and are just a single spot above the relegation zone. The team also has secured a total of two league wins since early November.
Moreover, Eibar have scored a surplus of just three goals than the dead-last placed Espanyol, and with the end of the season fast approaching, the six-point cushion might not be enough to keep them safe from getting a boot to the Segunda.
In the meantime, Sociedad recorded a 2-1 win at home, over Athletic Bilbao. Not only did the win keep their momentum going, but with the winner coming in the 83rd minute, the players’ intense desire to win was put on display as well.
Especially after they delivered the supremely impressive 3-4 win at the Bernabeu, to eliminate Real Madrid from the Copa, Real Sociedad have been a force to reckon with. Great things are expected from them this season.
Eibar vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Eibar are on a four-match winless run, and remained so in 15 of their previous 21 fixtures. At home, they had failed to score in three of the former six games, and remained winless in four of the last six.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad had won six of the past seven overall fixtures, and were unbeaten in 12 of their preceding 15 match-ups. On the road, they had won four of the prior six trips, and have lost a total of just five away fixtures this whole season.
Three of these five defeats had come against Real Madrid (in the league), Sevilla, and Athletic Bilbao. Keep note that Sociedad had scored four or more goals in four of their last six road trips, and they had kept clean sheets in five of their preceding eleven matches away from home.
Finally, Sociedad had won the reverse fixture with a 4-1 scoreline, and they had recorded nine of the past fourteen h2h wins as well.
Taking all these information into consideration, it’s estimated that Real Sociedad should put forth an impressive display this Sunday, in search for the three points.
