Villarreal vs Real Sociedad LaLiga Prediction by LeagueLane

Villarreal vs Real Sociedad
Spain-La Liga
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villareal).

Villarreal has been unbeaten for the past four matches in the campaign. Their recent two fixtures have ended in a draw which shows a shaky defense in the middle. Their previous encounter was on the road and they shared the spoils in a goalless scoreline with Huesca last time out in the league.

Real Sociedad has been winless for the past three clashes in their schedule. The visitor has only one win in their recent five fixtures and two losses in it. They will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw at home with Real Betis in the previous league clash in their schedule.

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

  • Only one of their last eight matches has ended in a draw.
  • Both teams have scored in four of their recent five clashes.
  • The host has lost only two of the last eight fixtures at home.
  • Their previous encounter in 2020 resulted in a 1-1 draw.
  • The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.

Villarreal vs Real Sociedad Prediction

Villarreal will be confident of keeping their unbeaten run in the league intact after the next clash. The host enjoys the ground advantage and has lost none of their last 14 home matches across all major contests in their schedule. With such a potent form at home, the host is likely to create more chances.

With their last three h2h meetings with Sociedad showing both teams scoring in each, the chance for a BTTS is also alive for the upcoming clash. The tip for BTTS at 1.80 odds will thus be a suitable option for the goals department to yield decent returns for the punters.

Apart from the host’s ground advantage, Real Sociedad hasn’t been at their best on the road. Two of their recent three La Liga outings saw them losing straight in the away schedule. Since the host is on a two-game streak of draws in the campaign, the double chance favoring Villarreal will probably be the best bet in the encounter.

Villarreal vs Real Sociedad Betting tips

  • Both teams to score @ 1.80 (4/5).
