After a mixed run of friendly results over the past week, Unai Emery looks to finish Villarreal's pre-season campaign with a home victory against Real Sociedad on Wednesday. Sociedad, who finished four points adrift of their midweek hosts when La Liga concluded in mid-July, play the first of a shortened friendly slate.

After their proposed fixture against Rio Ave was cancelled over the weekend due to coronavirus concerns, they play here and against Deportivo Alaves in quick succession this week. Can they get off to winning ways here though? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Villarreal vs Real Sociedad Betting Tips

It's been just over six weeks since Sociedad played – a credible 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid – and much has changed since. Norwegian playmaker Martin Odegaard, a driving force behind their success last term, returned to Real Madrid after another successful loan spell.

They also qualified for European competition, the first time since 2016-17, on the final day. Had they lost and Getafe or Valencia won their respective matches, either would have leapfrogged them into the top seven.

Europa League football beckons for a Sociedad side that aren't as strong on paper as last season, though the transfer window remains open.

Odegaard's playmaking abilities have been adequately replaced by Manchester City legend David Silva, who joined on a free transfer last month. He won't feature here though, having tested positive for COVID-19 this past week.

Javi Martinez and Noa Lang are among the players currently being linked, while Villarreal have been busy themselves. They managed to complete a midfield duo deal for Villarreal's Francis Coquelin and captain Dani Parejo, while taking Takefusa Kubo on-loan from Real Madrid.

Villarreal vs Real Sociedad Correct Score Predictions

It'll be interesting to see how the hosts fare, in a match they'll back themselves to win given Sociedad's inadequate match sharpness. Both teams have matchwinners capable of lighting up this friendly – from Samuel Chukwueze and Paco Alcacer to Adnan Januzaj and Mikel Oyarzabal. Therefore, I'm going safe with BTTS.
