      Real Sociedad vs Eibar Predictions

      The visitors have been a real surprise package this season and head into this game in 8th place, just 1 point below 5th place Deportivo. They are 8 points clear of Real Sociedad and their only league defeats this term have come against the top three including their 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid last weekend.

      However against everyone else they have proved themselves to be very competitive and Eibar are certainly capable of getting a result against an inconsistent Real Sociedad side.

      Eusebio Sacristán made a winning start to his role as Real Sociedad boss with a 2-0 home win over Sevilla but he’s lost both matches since then. A 4-0 defeat at the Camp Nou was followed by a 2-1 loss at Las Palmas in the Copa del Rey in midweek meaning La Real have still only won 3 games all season and just one at the Anoeta.
      Eibar may have slumped to a 3-0 defeat at 2nd tier Ponferradina in the Copa del Rey in midweek but it was a much changed line-up and we’ll see the players that have delivered some excellent results return for this game.

      Given Real Sociedad have been so unconvincing, Eibar look good value to secure at least a point at odds of 19/20.

      Their Copa del Rey selection reflected that they still view league survival as their only aim this term. Even though they are currently 10 points above the drop-zone, they’ll be wary of their dramatic collapse in the Second half of last season and would regard another point here as another step towards safety.

      There was only 1 goal in each of the games between the sides last season and it’s hard to see there being many goals here and a 1-1 draw looks like a likely result and can be backed at 11/2.
