Villarreal vs Real Sociedad Team News

Billed to finish in the bottom-half of the standings, Villarreal have exceeded pre-season expectations and are gunning for a place in Europe. In fact, a win in this fixture will guarantee their place in next season’s edition of the UEFA Europa League.

With their sights set on achieving huge successes this season, Villarreal set out to the Coliseum Alfonso Perez to take on arch-rivals Getafe on the last matchday. A ballsy affair in the South of Madrid, the visitors were made to scrap really hard for the win.

Despite being on the backfoot for large parts of the game, Getafe’s resilient defense refused to bulge as they kept on resisting every single Villarreal attack. However, they were finally breached in the 66th minute, opening the floodgates for two more goals as a comfortable 3-1 win was posted on the board.

Having endured a torrid spell since the league restart, Real Sociedad were looking to steady the ship with a potential morale-boosting win over tough customers Granada last time out. Considered underdogs prior to the game, Alguacil’s men were always likely to lose.

With a flurry of goals of note at the Reale Arena, Granada managed to topple their fellow Europa League rivals Sociedad via a thrilling 3-2 score-line. With another disappointing game played out, the Royal headed out of the pitch emptyhanded yet again.

Since the league restart, Real Sociedad have managed only a single win in eight league games. In that time, they have been condemned to defeat four times, securing draws on three other occasions. Apparently, the Royal are going through a very tough spell.

Meanwhile, Villarreal have been on an imperious run of form of late, falling to defeat just once post lockdown – the singular loss coming against title-chasing Barcelona. They have lost only four games on home turf, showing their pretty decent credentials on this ground.

Injured or Suspended Players

Villarreal: Ramiro Funes Mori, Paco Alcacer and Carlos Bacca.

Villarreal vs Real Sociedad Predictions

Real Sociedad are in their worst form ever and have been dropping points regularly. They have since lost their Midas touch, slowly headed for the outskirts of the European places. However, given the importance this game serves to their continental qualification hopes, the Royal are likely to put forth a good performance here.

That said, the Yellow Submarines are on home turf and heading into this fixture in outstanding form. Also, a win here will take them to within three points of the Champions League places. As such, a double chance backing Villarreal for victory seems the safest punt.
