Real Sociedad vs Eibar Match Preview
Two mid-table clubs with outside chances of qualifying for the Europa League go head-to-head at the Anoeta Stadium, but it is difficult to have total faith in either to win this game.
Outside of the top three in La Liga, it has been such an open campaign that theoretically any of the first 13 clubs in the table could still squeeze into Europe as even the lowest-placed of those, Espanyol, only have a seven-point gap to bridge over their seven remaining fixtures.
It would need a really strong finish from Real Sociedad or Eibar to storm into the top seven and that must be what they both have in mind, but frankly neither is in the sort of form where you can see them stringing together a series of victories.
It’s a similar story for both clubs at the moment – they are winning only sporadically, Sociedad just once in their last eight games while Eibar have managed two successes in nine and each of them is struggling badly to keep a clean sheet.
Eibar have been well supported with the bookmakers in the build-up to this match and with little to choose between these teams, we were tempted to recommend backing them at a bigger price than their hosts.
However, the club nicknamed Los Armeros (Gunsmiths) have a poor record of winning both in San Sebastian historically and anywhere on their travels this season, so the draw looks a more sensible wager here.
