The hosts have a strong draw trend against similar opposition so a stalemate looks likely.
Eibar have had a solid start to the season, with seven points from their five games, though they did let a 1-0 lead slip at Malaga in midweek as they went on to lose 2-1. Sociedad are also on seven points after they managed an impressive 4-1 home win against Las Palmas on Wednesday night, though they were helped by an early red card for the visitors.
Eibar are unbeaten in their last five at home and have lost only six of 21 at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium since the start of last season. Their record when hosting sides between 7th and 12th in that time is W1-D4-L2, with four 1-1 draws as both teams netted in six of these games. It’s also worth noting that Eibar were behind at the break in four of the last five.
Sociedad have been in decent form on the road, winning half of their last 10, with defeats coming in tough games at the likes of Atletico, Villarreal and Celta Vigo. The other was at Eibar, who’ve now beaten them twice at home since they joined the division, but the hosts’ strong draw trend against similar opposition means that it’s the stalemate we fancy here between two evenly matched sides.
