Cordoba and Eibar both spent the last football season in the second division and have successfully emerged as top clubs to be promoted to La Liga. However, if the comparison will only revolve between these squads, the away team have so far been more successful than their hosts. Their last three matches gave Eibar seven points while Cordoba only picked up one. On two occasions, Armeros achieved clean sheets. Their disparity is also quite evident in the current rankings of the Spanish top-flight league, where Los Califas are moored in the relegation zone while their rivals comfortably sit in the top half.


Online betting tip: Eibar could earn a third consecutive clean sheet against Cordoba.




Real Sociedad vs. Rayo Vallecano

Match Date: 17 January 2015 (local)

Match Venue: Estadio Anoeta


Carlos Vela’s opener via penalty kick gave Real Sociedad the early lead against Granada in their most recent bout. However, an equalizer from their opponents ensured that the match will end with both teams earning one point apiece. This extended Txuriurdin’s unbeaten run to a fourth week and while their streak is not necessarily as spectacular as that of the other stronger teams, it was decent enough to keep them within the top dozen of the league.

Rayo Vallecano, meanwhile, have retained their position in the mid-table following mixed performances in the past few weeks. Their resilience is noteworthy, but at the same time, they have a hard time addressing their inconsistency. The defense is also generally weak, with little efforts they exert to disallow their opponents from creating opportunities. Los Franjirrojos must also improve in the air for them to maximize their scoring potential.


Football betting tip: Real Sociedad will lord Rayo Vallecano over.
