Eibar vs Real Sociedad | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Eibar were one of the big success stories of La Liga last season. Having made their debut in the 2014/15 season following promotion from the Segunda Division, Eibar have continued to impress and finished 9th last season. Can they do even better this time? Real Sociedad have been one of the big underachievers in Spain in recent years. They finished 12th last season, all be it only 2 points adrift of their hosts in this game but will be hoping for an improvement in the 2018/19 campaign.
Eibar will see every home game as a great chance to pick up points, especially against teams who finished in the bottom half last season. Having endured a poor start to the new season, Eibar will be hoping to turn their small stadium into a difficult place for the visiting team. Real Sociedad will be playing their third away league game on the spin having yet to play a match at the Estadio Municipal de Anoeta this season. However, a positive result from this game will see them play their first match at home following the international break with high spirits.
Eibar have yet to pick up a point this season and will not want to head into the international week without a point to their name. They lost 2-1 at home to Huesca on the opening weekend of the season, which was a very disappointing result. The 2-0 loss at Getafe was not unexpected but makes this game even more important.
Real Sociedad will be pleased with their start to the La Liga season, especially as they have played two games away from home. Their first match produced a great 2-1 win at Villarreal and this set them up for their trip to Leganes, which finished 2-2. A win in this game would make for a great start to the campaign.
