Real Sociedad vs Villarreal Prediction & Betting tips
An interesting match in this day of Friday is the one that will dispute Real Sociedad and Villarreal by a new date of the Santander League.
Real Sociedad :
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, as the two teams are even and can alternate the ball during several passages of the game. However, if we consider the local factor of the Basques and their good ball deal in Anoeta, we advise you to play a few euros to your simple win. Remember that the “Yellow Submarine” could suffer in defense, to no longer have a squad of such level.
Take into account that Real Sociedad arrives very well to this duel after defeating 2-3 to Celta in Balaídos and to demonstrate that it can fight to any rival. The most positive thing of this triumph was to have doubled over the marked, after losing 1-0 and 2-1 respectively. Mention aside the effectiveness of the equipment and the intention to go forward.
On the other hand do not forget that the Basque picture alternated good and bad results in Anoeta, being his objective to be more regular in his stage. Ideally, do not lose points to lower teams, a fact that occurred many times in the last championship. He is expected to try to handle the ball and attack by taking advantage of the local factor and the dimensions of his field.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Villarreal gets a little beaten to this game after losing 1-0 over the final against Levante (penal goal converted to 88 ‘minutes of play). The team was combative but inferior to the one shown in the last campaign. It is expected that with the arrival of Colombian Bacca the situation will improve.
To finish we tell you that the “Yellow Submarine” alternated good and bad results playing away from home in the previous tournament. Its goal is to be competitive in this condition and to be protagonist in attack. Of course, you will try this even if you no longer have such a powerful team.
After all this I play for a victory of the local team due to the following reasons: First because the Real Sociedad showed more than interesting things in his debut against Celta, standing out for being effective in attack even if he has scored two goals for specific situations . Second because the Basques will try to start off with a good foot in Anoeta, where they have always conceded points against lower-level opponents. And third because Villarreal, despite having fought against Levante, has lowered its level slightly compared to last season. Faced with this reality and even when the process is intense and thorough at times, we believe that the Royal Society can win by one or two goals difference.
