Villarreal vs Real Sociedad Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Villarreal were involved in a top four race for much of the 2017-18 season and expectations are quite high surrounding the Yellow Submarines for the upcoming campaign due to the significant backing provided for manager Javier Calleja. Gerard Moreno, Ramiro Funes Mori, and Karl Toko Ekambi are a few of the names who have strengthened the club. Despite finishing close to mid-table places last season, Real Sociedad have gone in for Asier Garitano as a permanent replacement for Eusebio. Early pre-season results hint that Real Sociedad may be in for a struggle and Villarreal are capable of exploiting their poor pre-season form due to home advantage.

This has been a crucial summer for Villarreal as they have been able to bring in some talented players, experienced La Liga campaigners, and potential gambles in the transfer window. Real Sociedad have been struggling for goals in pre-season and this is expected to extend into the actual campaign. Villarreal have traditionally been low on goals against Real Sociedad at home. I would back under 2.5 goals in the match.

Villarreal win – 19/20

Total goals under 2.5 – 4/5
