Last matchday Villarreal was also stronger than Rayo Vallecano (1-5). The team now has 56 points. So far, it’s good enough to sit seventh in the table. The gap from the 6th position is 3 points. I would remind you that Sociedad are sitting in 6th position.
Unai Emery’s side have been performing excellently at home this season. They have scored 36 points in 18 games. All the results are as follows: 10 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses. The goal difference is 39-16. By the way, only one team in the Primera has a higher output at home – Real Madrid (44 goals).
At the moment, Villarreal are continuing their unbeaten home winning streak. There have been 11 matches (7 wins and 4 World Cup victories).
As I’ve already mentioned, Real Sociedad sit 6th in the standings (59 points). The Basques have already guaranteed themselves a place in the European competitions. The only remaining question is whether they will play in the Europa League or the Conference League.
On the previous matchday, Imanol Algwasil’s side were 3-0 stronger than Cadiz. They broke their streak of 4 consecutive games without a win (2 draws and 2 defeats).
Real C have earned 35 points in 18 home games this season. But on the road, their record is not so good: 6 victories, 6 Worlds and 6 defeats. There have been 22 goals scored and 27 conceded.
In total, the Basques have scored 37 goals and conceded 34 in 36 games. In 26 games, the total was under 2.5.

Prediction and bet on the match Villarreal – Real Sociedad. Outcome with cf. 1,60
The match is extremely important for both hosts and guests. The sixth position in the group stage of Europa League depends on its outcome.
I think Emery’s charges have the better chance of winning. First of all, because they have been performing very well at home this season. At the same time, the Basques are not impressive on the road.
Sociedad’s current form raises a lot of questions. Out of their last 5 games, they have only managed to win one. At the same time, the Yellows have won 3 victories in the last 5 games.
My prediction. I’m betting on Victory 1 over 0.
