Tip Real Sociedad Villarreal
on 19 February 2017
Real Sociedad host Villarreal in La Liga this weekend and it should be a cracking contest between two very evenly matched teams. Villarreal are going through a rough patch right now and this will be a massive challenge for them, especially away from home. Meanwhile, Sociedad are in good form and have won four of their last five La Liga outings. The home side will be looking to close the gap with the top four with another win. Atletico Madrid are just one point ahead of them in fourth place and this is a great opportunity for La Real to cut down that deficit. Having said that, they have a poor head to head record against Villarreal and will need to be careful about a slip up this weekend.
Our bet explained
- Villarreal have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 away matches in La Liga.
- Villarreal are undefeated in 10 of their last 11 matches against Real Sociedad in all competitions.
- Sociedad have won 4 of their last 5 matches in La Liga.
Our Real Sociedad Villarreal tip
Sociedad are firm favourites for this one and despite their poor record against Villarreal, they will be confident of getting a result. Villarreal have been poor all across the pitch lately. The away side have managed to defend well this season, but they are very poor going forward. Sociedad should be able to outscore them at home this week. However, they will need to be careful about their own leaky defence. A home win seems quite likely.
