Each of the teams has a chance for a victory here. Real Sociedad will have a support of home fans and an experienced squad of players, while visitors want to take revenge for a disappointing defeat in the Spanish Cup. We are expecting a bunch of goal opportunities in the upcoming game - opponents have serious offensive potential.
Our prediction - both teams to score
We feel that this game can go either way, but visitors have a slightly better line-up, which might be a key factor in this game. Basques won't go any lower than 6th place, while the visitors can lose the 3rd position in case of a defeat.
Our second bet is on Asian handicap (0) on Atletico
