Villarreal Real Sociedad betting prediction


Preview
Villarreal and Real Sociedad meet at Camp El Madrigal, in a match for the 21th round of the Primera División. Real Sociedad got a home win by (3‑0), in the last league head‑to‑head, played in 25‑08‑2017. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in the last 7 matches. However, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 11‑01‑2017, in a match for the Copa del Rey, they tied (1‑1). The goals of the match were scored by R. Soriano (45' ), for Villarreal, and by Mikel Oyarzabal (15' ), for Real Sociedad. Although this is a match between 5th and º of the league table, it’s actually a match between the 8th best in home matches and the 10th best in away matches.

Analysis of Villarreal

The home team is currently in the 5th position of the league, with 34 points won, after 10 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Real Madrid, by (0‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Levante, by (2‑1). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since they have won 17 points in away matches, with 11 goals scored and 14 conceded, against 17 points won at their stadium, with 17 goals scored and 8 conceded. In the last 9 home league matches Villarreal has a record of 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 17 points out of 27 possible. In their home league matches there are a few frequent results at half‑time: 1‑0 (4 out of 9 matches) and 0‑0 (4 out of 9 matches). Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, as 8 of the last 9 for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 20 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1.

Villarreal is going through a great phase in the Spanish League, having been undefeated for five rounds, having accumulated four victories in that period, having conceded just two goals. The last of them took place at home, against Levante, in a balanced game, where it showed a lot of consistency in the midfield, and also counted on the offensive fragility of the opponent, thus adding three more points in its dominions. As has become clear in the last rounds, the team has been characterized by a consistent defense, which is among the eight least leaked of the competition. Playing in its dominions, the team lost ten of the twenty-seven points that disputed, and in this condition only did not score goals in two occasions. The 4-1-2-1-2 or 4-4-2 should be the scheme adopted for this duel by the coach, who should keep Rodri as a reference in midfield.

Confirmed Lineup: Asenjo, Mario Gaspar, Jaume Costa, D. Bonera, Víctor Ruíz, Rodri, Samu Castillejo, Manu Trigueros, Pablo Fornals, C. Bacca, E. Ünal.

Analysis of Real Sociedad

The away team is currently in the ª position of the league, with no points won yet, after 6 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Barcelona, by (2‑4). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Celta de Vigo, by (1‑2). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, with 22 goals scored and 23 conceded at home, against 12 goals scored and 13 conceded in away matches. Their last away match for this competition ended in a loss by (1‑0) against Leganés. In the last 9 away league matches Real Sociedad has a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 11 points out of 27 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 5 away matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 20 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 9 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 14 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 8 of their 21 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Real Sociedad continues to have undesirable performance in this edition of the Spanish Championship, and has shown no signs of recovery, as it now comes from three consecutive defeats. The last of them took place at home, against Celta de Vigo, in a game where it missed a few passes and had more possession, but failed to show efficiency and in defensive terms, suffering another setback. As has become clear in the last rounds, the team has been characterized by a fragile defense, which is among the four most leaked of the competition. In contrast, its attack has been doing a good job, being the third that finishes the most. The team also has good numbers in the exchange of passes and possession of the ball, thus making difficult the opponent's work. For this duel, the coach is likely to set up the team in the 4-3-3, with Illarramendi standing out in the central area.

Confirmed Lineup: Toño, Odriozola, Íñigo Martínez, Llorente, Raúl Navas, Illarramendi, Xabi Prieto, Zubeldía, A. Januzaj, Willian José, Mikel Oyarzabal.

Betting suggestion:

This confrontation marks the meeting between two teams that have been campaigning somewhat different so far within the Spanish Championship. While Villarreal remains in the top five, Real Sociedad appears at the bottom of the table. The home team bets heavily on the counterattacks, but its defense fails in defensive set pieces, having committed many dangerous fouls. Real Sociedad usually attacks from the sidelines and shows a lot of efficiency when it comes to finish, while its defense fails in the interception in deep balls. Thus, we expect a balanced game between two limited teams, the draw being a good betting option, but with favoritism for the home team. This betting suggestion has expired...
