Eibar vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Eibar will look to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat against Mallorca. Even with that home defeat though, Eibar is on an impressive home run recently. From their last 5 home league matches, they won 3 and drew 1 that includes a 2-0 home win against Atletico Madrid. They will use this form and hope they can find a good result as they face a tough team in Real Sociedad.
Following a valiant effort in their last match defeat against the league leaders Barcelona, Real Sociedad will look to bounce back as they visit Eibar. This is a tricky fixture for them though, add the fact that they are currently on a 3-game losing streak when playing away. Out of the 13 away league matches, they played this season, they have only won 5.
The season is about to end and Eibar find themselves just 2 points off the relegation zone, so they will surely have the motivation to play well here. I’m tipping Eibar will have a positive result here.
