Eibar vs Real Sociedad Prediction & Betting tips
Being honest the two teams are even and can be neutralized in the midfield during several passages of the match. Therefore, we should not be surprised if they have problems to reach the goal, regardless of the final result. Paint to be an intense and tactical duel, but with some chances for both sides for their way of playing. Of course, the hard work of the preseason could affect the good foot of the players and make them fail at the time of elaboration. Considering this, we believe that Real and Eibar can maximum score a goal at least, being possible to tie 0-0 or 1-1 after the final whistle.
The season 2017-2018 of the Real was not good to be placed in the twelfth position with 49 points, product of 14 wins, 7 draws and 17 falls in total (66 goals scored and 59 transferred on his fence, proving to be an irregular eleven between lines and unbalanced at the time of scoring, now the goal of the squad is to be more secure in defense and not receive so many goals in your goal, otherwise you will be condemned to wander around the middle table and without the possibility of fighting for a position in the Next Europa League To achieve this goal, coach Asier Garitano has been appointed after his great work in Leganés, which was praised by the specialized press.
For this campaign, the Basques have signed Mikel Merino, player of some renown after having previously played in the German Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle English. Of course, some players have not been considered by the coach due to injury, these being Imanol Agirretxe, Jon Guridi and David Concha. Another element that will not be in this friendly and in the first part of the season is the Belgian winger, Januzaj (rest for his participation with Belgium in the 2018 World Cup Russia). The Mexican Hector Moreno will not be present either, since he is having some vacation days after being with his team in the World Cup. As an extra data, we tell you that the following friendlies of the squad will be Athletic Bilbao, Alavés, Stuttgart and Freiburg.
After having carried out a worthy campaign in the 2017-2018 season, the aim of Eibar is to qualify for a European tournament. He was close to getting it after placing in the ninth position with 51 points, being 7 of the seventh Sevilla (14 wins, 9 equalities and 15 falls in total). The performance of the team was positive at times and somewhat irregular in others, standing out for having positive and negative gusts that prevented him from getting definitely into the fight to qualify for the Europa League that has just started in its previous phases. The goal of the coach José Luis Mendilibar is to ensure that the Basques take a leap of quality in the Santander League and position themselves as a set of care for any opponent.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that the “azulgranas” are looking for reinforcements urgently so that the coach can have most of the squad together before traveling to the Austrian town of Kossen, which was chosen for the pre-season. So far they have come to the club a couple of players, which do not have much popularity that we say (defender José Antonio Martínez from Barcelona B and Kike Pina from Mérida). Among the main figures that remain in the institution are the goalkeepers Yoel and Risk, the defenders Ramis, Paulo, Martinez, Peña, Gálvez, Cote, the steering wheels Jordan, Diop, Alain Ribeiro, Pedro Leon, Orellana, Baby and Christian Rivera, and forwards Kike García, Nano, Charles and Sergi Enrich.
Since Eibar ascended to the first division a few years ago, both teams have played 4 matches in total. The first 3 were won by the “azulgrana” team, while the last one finished tied without goals at the beginning of April 2018. The victories were 1-0 in August 2014, 2-1 in April 2016 and 2-0 in September. of that same year.
