Monaco vs Real Sociedad Head-to-head

  • Their only meeting took place this September in the tournament and the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
  • The Monégasques have won 8 games and lost 10 against Spanish clubs.
  • The White and Blues have won twice and lost twice against French Clubs.
  • The visitors have won once and lost once on French soil.

Analysis

The hosts are undefeated in the campaign with wins against Sturm Graz at home and PSV away from home, on either side of their 1-1 draw against this foe in Spain. In their most recent contest, PSV held them to a goalless draw at home. They are currently top of the group clear of their opponents for Thursday by a couple of points.

With not the best of runs in the league recently they sit 8th in the league with about half the points the league leaders PSG have managed.

La Real started the tournament with a 2-2 draw against PSV on the road. Then fought to 1-1 draws against Sturm Graz and this foe on either side of their 1-0 win against the former. They currently occupy the second position in the table, 2 points behind Monaco. In La Liga, they are the closest team behind league leaders Real Madrid by a point. 

Monaco vs Real Sociedad Prediction

The visitors will go into the match with a much better run of games as they are unbeaten across all competitions since the mid of August, the hosts on the other hand have not really performed to their standards over the last month and are winless in 4 games. I don’t think La Real will go away without taking any points and hence backed a double chance in their favour.

The home team has failed to score in 3 of their last 4 games and the visiting side averages 1.20 goals per game in their last 5 fixtures, do not expect a goal-fest from this fixture.
