We said: Real Sociedad 2-1 Villarreal

Real Sociedad recorded a 3-0 win over Villarreal in the reverse match earlier this season; we are not expecting it to be so one-sided in this game, especially considering the home side's injury problems. However, Real Sociedad should still have enough quality to navigate their way to an important three points. Read more.
