Preview:
Real Sociedad and Villarreal face at Estadio Municipal de Anoeta, in a match for the 16th round of the Primera División. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the away team, since they have a record of 1 win and 4 draws in the last 5 matches. However, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 25‑04‑2015, in a match for the Primera División they tied (0‑0). In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since Villarreal presents significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Real Sociedad

After 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses, the home team is in the 13th position, havinf won 16 points so far. In the last match, they have tied in an away match against Getafe by (1‑1), after in the previous match they have won (2‑1) at home, against Eibar. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in away matches; against 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses at their stadium. In their last match, for the Copa del Rey, they got a home tie against Las Palmas by (1‑1). In the last 7 home league matches Real Sociedad has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 8 points out of 21 possible. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (3 out of 7 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Real Sociedad is to play a home match and should be confidant and optimistic, since they come from two wins, against stronger teams: Sevilla (7th) and Eibar (10th). These results were important but not enough to get the team out of the bottom of the league table. Therefore, they need to start winning points more regularly, so in this home match they need to win points.

Confirmed Lineup: G. Rulli, D. Reyes, Aritz Elustondo, Íñigo Martínez, Yuri, Granero, Bruma, Illarramendi, Canales, Agirretxe, C. Vela.
Coach: Eusebio Sacristán.

Analysis of Villarreal

The away team is currently in the 5th position of the league, with 27 points won, after 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Rayo Vallecano, by (2‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Real Madrid, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 19 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 12 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 9 conceded. In their last match, for the Copa del Rey, they got a home win against Huesca by (2‑0). Their last away match was for the UEFA Europa League and ended in a draw by (3‑3) against Viktoria Plzeň. In the last 7 away league matches Villarreal has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 8 points out of 21 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 4 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (5 out of 7 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

Villarreal is in the first positions of the table, but in away matches they haven’t done all that well, since in the last 4 they register a draw and 3 losses, one of which against Levante, last in the league table. Therefore, it’s clear that they don’t maintain their competitive levels in this condition.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Areola, M. Musacchio, A. Rukavina, Víctor Ruíz, Jaume Costa, J. dos Santos, Denis Suárez, Tomás Pina, Bruno, C. Bakambu, Soldado.
Coach: Marcelino.

Betting suggestion:

Real Sociedad has the home advantage, which may be decisive in this match against a team that hasn’t done well in the last away matches, despite fighting for the first positions. Therefore, despite having a much better squad, Villareal is likely to allow the home team to get at least a draw.
