Real Sociedad vs Villarreal
Competition – Spanish Primera
Stadium – Estadio Anoeta
Date: 25th April 2019
Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT
Villarreal will continue their fight to remain in La Liga when they take on Real Sociedad in this game.
The Yellow Submarines exited the Europa League at the hands of fellow Spanish side Valencia last week and some fans may feel that was good because they can now focus all of their energy and resources on surviving a tough season that they have spent mostly fighting relegation.
They have won their last two league games and have suffered just two defeats in their last six league games. These results have helped them moved to 14th in the league table, just 6 points off the top ten.
Another win for them here could all but confirm their safety but that won’t be easy to achieve in this game.
Real Sociedad are currently 11th in the league table with 41 points after 33 league games. Just five points separates them from 6th position and they would feel that they can still finish inside the top seven if they win their remaining games.
Sociedad have lost two and drew one of their last 3 games.
Bookmakers have priced Real Sociedad up as slight favourites to come out on top in this game while Villarreal will start the game as outsiders however the odds are close and a close game is expected.
Goal markets point to a lively game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while da Silva Willian Jose is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game.
This game gets underway at 19:30 BST.
