Real Sociedad is doing just fine. The team shares first place in La Liga along with Real Madrid and Sevilla, and today they can go to a clean first place in points. All they have to do is beat Athletic. Well, it is not that easy, but still, Sociedad did it twice last season. And once it was a trophy match.
Sociedad is a very low-scoring team. Only two of the last thirteen matches saw total over 2.5 goals scored. The upcoming match is very important for Sociedad and there is no way they can lose the derby. That’s why we should not expect brave soccer today.
Athletic is the same story. The team is quite low-scoring. Total Under 2.5 worked out 9 times in the last 11 games. Marcelino's players don't like to dominate like Barcelona in the 10s. Well, there’s nothing to do about it. They didn't do it last season, they won't do it this season either.
This is also a very important match for Athletic. Without taking into account the fact that this is a derby, you have to understand that there is no way for the team to lose. Athletic is going steady but has a lot of draws. A loss at this pace could knock out the team. That’s why it is crucial to be accurate today.Watch La Liga Matches Free Online
