Real Sociedad fully utilized their home advantage in the first leg clash and thrashed Villarreal by 3 goals to 1. This is a healthy lead and all they have to do now is avoid silly mistakes. They were at the receiving end of a heavy battering from Sevilla in the weekend La Liga fixture which they lost by 4-0. This is a good reason for head-coach Eusebio Sacristan to demand swift improvements from his defensive players.

Villarreal earned a priceless point by holding Barcelona to a 1-1 draw at El Madrigal in their weekend LaLiga fixture. However, they haven’t won their last three matches, with 2 draws sandwiching the loss to Sociedad.

Villarreal vs Real Sociedad: Head-to-head stats

  • Sociedad were only able to manage 2 wins in their previous 12 visits to Villarreal, 6 wins and 4 draws.

Villarreal vs Real Sociedad: Prediction

With a 2 goal deficit to negotiate, we can expect Villarreal to go on the offensive from the kick-off. Sociedad are coming after conceding 4 goals at home against Sevilla, and there will be some nervy faces in their defense. Villarreal could earn a win here, however we are unsure if it will be enough to guarantee them a place in the quarter finals. Nonetheless, this match promises at least 3 goals.
