Real Sociedad vs Villarreal Match Preview
Villarreal travel to Donostia-San Sebastian for their Matchday 34 clash on Thursday looking to build on the last week’s win over Leganes (2-1) and take revenge for a 1-2 home loss suffered to Real Sociedad earlier this term – where Willian Jose and Juanmi proved enough for the rivals to snatch all three points.
Yellow Submarine have struggled for consistency but we have thus seen them bag six points in last two league outings, despite an Europa League exit in the hands of Valencia (5-1 on aggregate) seen along the way. They still sit just two points clear of the relegation zone and points at Anoeta feel like a must for Javi Calleja’s men.
Real Sociedad have struggled for such pick-me-ups and although the loss at Barcelona (2-1) came narrowly, it was their second in three outings with just a point (1-1 against Eibar) earned along the way.
Txuri-urdinak have proven themselves a tougher side to beat in front of the home fans but still saw just one win in their last four home outings. They struggled to keep it together at the back, which made it hard to capitalize on the goals scored despite Juanmi taking advantage of his chances and bagging three goals in last four appearances.
We will now back Villarreal to capitalize but we’ll go for the sides to share the spoils on the day, where a Draw looks the best approach to the market at 12/5 with Paddy Power. We’ve seen Sociedad struggling to turn clashes their way here and this could prove costly once again.
We should be in for goals and Villarreal will have to cope if they’re to snatch points, which also has us going for a Yes on Both teams to score at 8/13 with bet365. We’ve seen both scoring and conceding on the regular lately, as many rate this a banker bet.
