Athletic Bilbao vs Real Sociedad Match Preview
Real Sociedad have seen a tough start of the new campaign and take on their consecutive trip as they face Athletic Bilbao on Friday evening, looking to build on the four-point tally and keep up with the top of La Liga table early in the new campaign with an upset at San Mames Barria.
Txuri-urdinak held off Valencia in a thriller 1-1 draw on the opening day of the campaign, where Mikel Oyarzabal netted the last-gasp penalty kick. They built on the success with a narrow 0-1 win at Mallorca with a late winner from Martin Odegaard, which promises them in a great mood once again.
Athletic Bilbao have, on the other hand, shocked Barcelona (1-0) in front of the home fans with a very late winner from Aduriz and managed an important point at Getafe (1-1) since. They have been just as tough to score against and will now want more of the same on Friday, promising another great challenge in front of the home fans.
Los Leones have struggled against Real Sociedad lately, though, and have a lot to prove after seeing three losses in the last four head-to-head clashes. They’ve conceded a high total of eight goals along the way and keeping it together at the back just might make all the difference once again.
With such a contest in mind, we’re now sticking our necks out for the sides to share the spoils in a Draw priced at 12/5 with bet365, which would be the first such occasion between them since 2017 and their goalless clash at this ground.
We are going for few goals once again and we’ll back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 6/10 with William Hill, which has caught the eye of many big hitters as both sides prove themselves very tough at the back early in the new season.
