Eibar vs Real Sociedad
Spain – La Liga
Date: Friday, 31 August 2018
Kick-Off at 21:00 UK / 22:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua, Eibar.
Real Sociedad will complete a streak of three consecutive away fixtures at the start of the new La Liga campaign on Friday evening when they travel to Estadio Municipal de Ipurua to take on the struggling Eibar side.
It will be a great opportunity for Asier Garitano and his men to back up the fine kick off to the season and add more points on the board after picking up as many as four from visits o Villarreal and Leganes.
The Gunsmiths are in a completely opposite rhythm after losing to both Huesca and Getafe so far.
The head coach Jose Mendillibar has lots of headaches caused by the lack of meticulous in his side’s defensive line which shipped two goals apiece against attackingly limited sides such as Huesca and Getafe.
Eibar’s defensive woes will certainly be the music to the ears of a star-studded and in-form attacking line of Sociead’s led by Willian Jose, Juanmi and Mikel Oyarzabal.
Eibar vs Real Sociedad: Head-to-head
The head to head stats also speak in Sociedad’s favour as the Basques won 7 and lost only 3 of 16 meetings with the Gunsmiths.
Txuri-Urdinak took four points from last term meetings with Eibar thanks to a 3-1 home win.
Sociedad also came on top in a pre-season friendly, beating the Gunsmiths 2-3 on the road in late-July.
Eibar vs Real Sociedad: Prediction
Garitano’s men have been quite prolific up front bagging four goals in two opening rounds and they have a nice chance to keep such form going past the vulnerable defense of Eibar’s.
Since the head to head record also suggests a pleasant evening for the visitors, the away win is a must-take bet at the 2.50 odds.
Based on what’s written above, you’ll hardly make a mistake backing the Basques to net two or more goals at the same 2.50 odds.
Meanwhile Willian Jose is worth backing to score anytime at 2.60. The Brazilian forward found the back of the net in the opening victory over Villarreal 1-2 at Estadio de la Ceramica.
