  • Competition: La Liga
  • Date: Friday, 23rd February 2024
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UTC / 21:00 CET
  • Venue: Reale Arena (San Sebastian)

It is hard to believe that Real Sociedad is capable of finishing among the best four teams in La Liga and securing another Champions League appearance. Right now, they are 11 points behind the desired spot. Real Sociedad have been in bad form lately, with five without a win in a row run. Last weekend, Imanol Alguacil's team finally broke the negative run with a 2-1 win on the road against Mallorca. According to the stats, Real Sociedad was a much better side in every aspect of the game but still needed the game-winner in the second half's stoppage time to take all three points. 

Villarreal won only one of the last eight matches in all competitions. Luckily for Marcelino's team, they are still too far from the relegation zone, but the Yellow Submarine should start picking some points. In the previous La Liga round, Villarreal played 1-1 at home against Getafe. The home side was probably better, but their inefficiency again cost them points. Villarreal scored only two goals in the last three matches, so it is quite apparent where most of their problems are. On Friday versus Real Sociedad, Villarreal have to produce one of the best performances in the season to take points from Reale Arena in San Sebastian. 

Real Sociedad vs Villarreal pick: Under 2.5 goals

Real Sociedad scored only two goals in the last six matches. On the other hand, Villarreal scored only two goals in the previous three games. Under 2.5 goals should be the best betting option for this tie.

Real Sociedad team news

Real Sociedad have a long list of missing players. They will be without Sheraldo Becker, Alvaro Odriozola, Kieran Tierney, Martin Merquelanz, Aihen Munoz, and Carlos Fernandez. The good news for Imanol Alguacil is that Mikel Oyarzabal and Aritz Elustondo are very close to recovering from muscle injuries. At the moment, we should consider them questionable for Friday.
