Stadium: Anoeta (San Sebastian)
There is no need to look at Real Sociedad’s results. They are very misleading. It is better to see how these guys play football. We have big questions about the Basque game.
Real Sociedad won five games this season. They won four of them by one goal difference. In three of those matches, the winning goals were scored in 80+ minutes. No, the boys, of course, are good for fighting to the end, but they grind out all their victories. And if only they beat Real Madrid and Barcelona, they can barely beat Elche.
Sociedad have had precisely three difficult matches this season. Against Barcelona (lost), against Sevilla (draw), and against PSV (draw). As you can see, nowhere did they achieve a positive result. So why should it happen in the match against Monaco?
There is no more challenging period. Monaco won their last two matches in the French championship and moved up to 8th place in the standings. In the Europa League, Monaco are doing well as they beat Sturm in their first match of the group stage.
I understand that Monaco had problems at the beginning of the season, but Monaco remain Monaco. And Monaco are stronger than Real Sociedad. And Monaco will at least put up a fight against the Basque side.
Expert Betting Tips
I propose to bet on a Monaco handicap (0) of 2.36. If you want to play it safe, you can take X2. In case of a draw, you’ll still win. In general, I think Monaco will take 3 points and show Sociedad’s actual place. Good luck, everyone!
