Real Sociedad – Statistics & Current Form
Last weekend, head coach Imanol Alguacil’s squad was unsuccessful for the third time in a row, but the performance at Camp Nou was strong. There was no class difference in the duel against the designated champion, neither visually nor on the basis of the statistics. “La Real” was very naughty and deserves a point. But the 1: 2 at Camp Nou was definitely an achievement that makes you brave for the upcoming tasks. This appearance was not to be expected, because the blue-whites from the Basque country complain these days an enormous injury pitch. Alguacil had no less than six players pretend Messi & Co due to a variety of injuries. With Zubeldia (central midfield) and Llorente (center-back), the military hospital in Camp Nou increased again. Given five points behind seventh place, it will probably take a strong season finish to make Europe League ambitions a reality. Raul Navas (for Llorente) and Sangalli (for Zubeldia) are likely to slip into home form on Thursday at home.

Villarreal – Statistics & Current Form
In the first 26 league games, the yellow submarine from Villarreal celebrated only a measly four victories this season! Memories of the horror season 2011/12, in which the team could not avert the descent, were almost omnipresent. After the direct return Villarreal had a place between four and six five times in a row. The fans were accordingly spoiled for success, but this season Villarreal did not get going for a long time. A change of coach did not bring the hoped-for turnaround and so it was after a few weeks a role backwards to Javier Calleja. In his second term, this turnaround fortunately succeeded. In a form table of the last eight league games Villarreal even ranked seventh. Despite this significantly increasing form, the fear of descent is still there. After four wins in 26 games, Villarreal has won four of the last seven league games. Most recently there were victories against Girona (1-0) and Leganes (2-1). With a third victory in a row, the yellow submarine would take a big step towards relegation.
The last few weeks and months have left their mark and self-confidence is still extremely low. Especially in tight situations in the final phase begins the big shaking. Villarreal had already conceded several goals this season in the closing stages. In general, the defensive is the Achilles heel of the Calleja Elf. Again and again, the four-chain fabricated hair-raising mistakes and downright creates goals. In the game forward, the newly formed offensive remained pale for a long time, but in the last few weeks was finally able to develop the desired Torgefahr. Karl Toko Ekambi has finally arrived, Gerard Moreno is also clearly improved. The momentum in the relegation battle speaks for Villarreal in any case.
Despite the rising form and good results at the Aneota Stadium, Real Sociedad and Villarreal are predicting a win for the visitors. The offered odds of 3.00 are a little too low to be able to recommend the bets on the fifth away win of Villarreal.
Expected formation of Villarreal:
↳ Asenjo – Quintilla, Funes Mori, Gonzalez, Gaspar – Fornals, Iborra, Cazorla, Chukwueze – Toko Ekambi, Moreno
Last matches of Villarreal:
⚽️ 21.04.2019 – Villarreal vs. CD Leganés 2: 1 (La Liga)

⚽️ 14.04.2019 – Girona vs. Villarreal 0: 1 (La Liga)
