Real Sociedad vs Villarreal
Spain – La Liga
Date: Thursday, 25th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Estadio Anoeta (San Sebastian).
Sociedad displayed spirit and intent against Barcelona in their league tie the last match-day, and they were unlucky to not have gotten at least a point from the fixture. With five more games to go, time is fast running out for them to make Europe. Considering they have the home advantage for this next tie, fans will urge the players to go in for the three points.
Villarreal once in this season looked as if they were on their way out of this competition, but as the curtains were prepared to close in, the team raised their levels and is currently on a comparatively safer spot. The players will give their lives to defend the four-point cushion they have for the next five fixtures.

Real Sociedad vs Villarreal Prediction
Real was unbeaten at home in eight of their last nine tries, and in 12 of their last 15. Meanwhile, Villarreal lost three of their last four away ties and was winless in 16 of their last 20. Recent h2h ties have shown Real displaying domination with three of the last five wins going to them, and four of the last six wins going to the teams at home.
Moreover, with their impressive performance against Barcelona at the Camp Nou, Sociedad is high on confidence and can be counted on to avoid a loss at any cost.
But Villarreal is on the bounce, and will not want to risk their future. They will be desperate to keep the momentum going, and with five of their last six road fixtures seeing them scoring, the chances for BTTS to be fulfilled this Thursday are very high.
