Real Sociedad vs Vardar
UEFA Europa League
Date: 2nd November 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK / 21:05 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Anoeta (San Sebastian).
The Basques confirmed the huge gulf in quality between the two sides two weeks ago when they demolished Vardar by six goals in the Macedonian capital.
Another victory over the same opposition would likely bring the Spaniards on the brink of the knockout stage of the competition depending on Rosenborg’s success against Zenit in the other match of the group.
Eusebio Sacristian has a talent-packed squad, particularly moving forward, but his main issues are connected with his team’s consistency at the start of the season.
The inconsistent performances result in Sociedad’s ninth position after ten opening rounds in La Liga where they suffered a 2-1 loss away at Getafe on Sunday.
The Macedonians are obviously massive underdogs in this group and they’ve easily lost each of the opening three fixtures with a horrendous goal difference of 1-14 along the way.
The painful defeat to Sociedad has clearly affected Vardar’s domestic displays as Cedomir Janevski’s men suffered back-to-back losses to Pobeda and Rabotnicki before playing a goalless draw with Sileks in the weekend behind us.
Real Sociedad vs Vardar: Head to head
As we stated above, the Basques demolished their rivals 0-6 in the first ever head to head encounter between the two sides.
Mikel Oryazabal opened the scoring 12 minutes in the game for Sociedad before Willian Jose has his show netting four goals in a row. The left-back Alberto De La Bella set the final score in the last minute of the match.
Real Sociedad vs Vardar: Prediction
This will also likely be a one-way street from the very first whistle and we see it as a fantastic opportunity for Sacristian’s side to boost up the confidence ahead of the Primera Division challenges.
