Napoli vs Real Sociedad Prediction & Match Preview

Napoli vs Real Sociedad
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 10 December 2020
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Estadio Diego Armando Maradona (Naples).

Napoli is leading the table, as it stands, with 10 points on the top. They are still not out of danger of slipping out of their playoff chances in the Europa League.

Unbeaten in the last four EL clashes, their previous EL fixture was on road, which ended in a 1-1 draw with AZ Alkmaar.

Real Sociedad has not been entirely reflecting their La Liga form in the EL campaign. The visitor has been unbeaten for the last three EL clashes with two consecutive draws as of late.

They will visit after suffering a 2-2 draw at home with Rijeka in the previous league encounter.

Napoli vs Real Sociedad Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Their previous encounter in 2020 EL gave a 0-1 away win for Napoli.
  • The host has won none of their last eight clashes with other Spanish clubs.
  • Both teams have scored in Napoli’s recent five fixtures with other clubs from Spain.
  • The visitor has won none of their last four clashes with other Italian clubs.

Napoli vs Real Sociedad Prediction

Napoli is closer to making it into the playoffs this season in Europa League. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game and has lost only one clash in the tournament so far this season.

Besides, they will return home after a 0-4 win on the road against Crotone in Serie A last time out in their overall schedule.

Four consecutive draws across all major competitions in the schedule will hold back Real Sociedad in the upcoming match.

The visitor has developed problems at the back in their domestic league after winning seven games straight in La Liga this season.

Based on the stats, the tip for under 3.5 goals in full-time will probably be the best bet from the goals area to yield decent returns.

Since both teams have a decent form, the tip for BTTS will also come in handy for the punters in the encounter.
