Villarreal vs Real Sociedad
Spain – La Liga
Date: Monday, 13 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villarreal).
Both teams are fighting to stay in the hopes of a trip to Europe next season, and the three points are vital to both teams. Hence, we can expect a tight encounter at Villarreal during the Real Sociedad visit.
Villarreal’s only loss post lockdown is the 1-4 loss at home against Barcelona. They made up for it in their last match when they visited Getafe and returned home with a 1-3 win on the road.
Only their last two matches saw both teams score in the game. With six wins from their last eight matches, the host puts a firm case for the three points in the clash.
Their 8 wins from 17 home matches so far might not seem much in the record, but they have lost only 4 attempts in the same period and two of this came within the last five fixtures.
Real Sociedad has won only one of the last eight fixtures after the league restarted this season. They were winless in their last two matches, following a 2-3 loss at home against Granada last time out.
La Real has 6 wins in their 17 away fixtures so far this season and is winless in the recent three tours with two losses in it. With a not so intimidating form in their away fixtures, the visitor is not likely to pose a serious threat to the home team.

Villarreal vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Coming on the back of an away win from the recent fixture and their only recent loss being against Barcelona in the league schedule, the morale of the Villarreal players will be high in the clash.
The Yellow Submarine has a 6 points lead over the visitors in the league table. Besides, the host enjoys a slight home ground advantage in the game with their decent home run this season.
Real Sociedad has been dropping points recently with a dip in form. This will hold them back in the encounter and their poor away form will add to their problems on the road.
The safest option for the punters will be a double chance favoring Villarreal with 1.40 odds. Besides, the teams are likely to see the back of the net, and BTTS with 1.60 odds will also come in handy.
Their h2h history shows an average of 3 goals per match in their meetings. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals at 1.40 odds will be a suitable option for the punters in the game.
