The home side are just five spots and six points ahead of Villarreal in fifth place, having amassed 31 points from 18 games so far this season. There has been a good-feel radiating about the club in recent weeks with some sections of club's supporters already tipping their side to finish in the top-four.

Real Sociedad vs Villarreal Team News

Real Sociedad were on the road last time out against newly-promoted Osasuna but were required to dig really deep to post the three points on the board. In truth, Alguacil's men were lackluster all through the game and can consider themselves lucky to have sealed a win.

Even with numerical advantage on their side, after an Osasuna player received his marching orders for a late tackle, Sociedad still managed to concede three goals. Their defenders must have been kicking themselves for allowing those goals fly in due to a lapse in concentration.

Thanks to The Whites and Blues' potent attack, the visiting contingent were able to out-score their stubborn opposition in a frantic 4-3 encounter at the El Sadar Stadium.

Villarreal, on the other hand, followed up a hard-fought home win the previous game-week with a disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of Getafe. The latter have been truly impressive this season and the Villarreal supporters can have no complaints about their team's loss.

For this fixture, the Reale Seguros Stadium factor is likely to come into play, given that the visitors have been mediocre on their travels this season. The Yellow Submarines have managed a measly four wins on the road the entire campaign.

One of those wins had come in the Copa del Rey against some Segunda Division minnows, and two others coming against 19th placed Leganes and basement club Espanyol.

Real Sociedad, in sharp contrast, have admitted defeat just twice in front of the home crowd the entire season. They gave their fans something to cheer about in their most recent home game, holding defending champions Barcelona to a 2-2 draw.

Also, these cluster are on a five-match unbeaten run at the moment, firing home a total of 19 goals in the process. The Royals look simply unstoppable as they cannot stop scoring!

Injured or Suspended Players:

Real Sociedad: Asier Illarramendi.

Villarreal: Bruno Soriano, Ramiro Guerra, Giuseppe Rossi.

Real Sociedad vs Villarreal Predictions

For all their attacking prowess this season, Real Sociedad's defense have come in for some serious scrutiny. The Royals just cannot seem to keep clean sheets, especially in front of the home support, often relying on the attackers to outscore the opposition.

As such, count on Villarreal to breach their opponent, at least once, before the end of the ninety minutes. However, Imanol Alguacil should have enough about themselves to secure the win to keep up the pressure on fourth-placed Atletico Madrid.
