Match Preview

  • Eibar’s 2-1 home loss in their last La Liga (LL) outing saw them put an end to a run of four straight home fixtures without a single loss in the top-flight (W3, D1). Significantly, all three of their victories during that period were achieved despite the hypothetical -1 handicap.
  • Fans should expect a lively start here, as ‘Los Armeros’ have scored a goal within 30 minutes in four of their last five LL home matches. Furthermore, they also netted a goal after the 80th minute in four of those games.
  • Real Sociedad come into this game having won just one of their last six road trips in the league (D1, L4), while conceding an average of 2.00 goals per-fixture across that period. Encouragingly though, ‘La Real’ are often quick out of the blocks, scoring 50% of their away league goals in the opening 30 minutes.
  • Whilst 61.54% of Sociedad’s away league games this term have been level at the break, only two of those games actually ended in a draw (W5, D2, L6). Furthermore, 53.85% of their away league fixtures this season have produced over 1.5 first-half goals.
  • Players to watch: Fabián Orellana (EIB) has been the game’s last scorer in each of the last four league games in which he has found the net. Meanwhile, Sociedad’s top league scorer Willian José has netted each of his eight league strikes before the hour mark.
  • Stat attack: Only one of Eibar’s home league games this season featured both teams scoring before half-time.
  • Sociedad have trailed at half-time in just two of their 13 LL away games to date (HT: W3, D8, L2).
  • Away teams have won just 16.67% of the LL matches refereed by Carlos del Cerro Grande this campaign.
