One of the headlining matches for Europa League betting on Thursday night comes from Spain as Sociedad host Monaco.

This will be the first meeting between the two clubs in San Sebastian and it is an important one.

Real Sociedad Preview – Home advantage to pay off?

On Matchday One Real Sociedad collected a good point in a battling 2-2 draw at PSV Eindhoven.

That was a good result in a difficult away match from them.

It saw the Spaniard continue on in some very good recent form as well.

After losing their opening match of the season against Barcelona, Sociedad are undefeated in all competitions since.

They are W5 D2 in their last seven and therefore pose a big threat.

IN the match outright for Europa League betting, the win for Sociedad is at 13/10* (odds recorded 18:30 GMT on 28th September 2021).

That’s a reasonable odds-against price for a in-form team at home.

From their four home matches in all competitions, Sociedad are W3 D1 this season and haven’t conceded a single goal in that sequence.

The only previous experience that Sociedad have had against French teams, was four previous matches against Lyon from which they took a W2 L2 record.

Our betting prediction:
Sociedad to win and BTTS

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 18:30 GMT on 28th September 2021)


Real Sociedad claimed a second-place finish in their Group Stage campaign of last season’s Europa League.

They only netted the five goals in that group stage campaign, the lowest tally of all teams that go to the knockout stage.

Their overall home record in the competition reads W3 D1 L2 as this is just their third appearance.

Given that they have been solid in deference in San Sebastian this season, the Sociedad to win to nil betting option is at 13/10* (odds recorded 18:30 GMT on 28th September 2021).

Last season Sociedad won the delayed 2019/20 Spanish Cup Final and took a fifth place finish in La Liga.


Monaco Preview – Can Monaco take further control?

There was a positive start to Europa League proceedings made by Monaco on Matchday 1.

They took a slightly underwhelming 1-0 home win over Sturm Graz to get on the board.

Monaco are 2/1 underdogs for the win on Thursday* (odds recorded 18:30 GMT on 28th September 2021).

They have plenty of previous experience against the Spanish opposition.

It is a W8 D4 L10 record that Monaco have against Spanish teams.

It has been only a W2 D1 L8 record by Monaco from their eleven previous visits to Spain.

Their most recent trip there ended in a 2-0 loss against Atletico Madrid in the 2018 UEFA Champions League group stage.

This is by no means an easy road game for them.

Monaco’s season in Europe did start in the Champions League qualifiers, but they were eliminated by Shakhtar 3-2 on aggregate.

It has been a W4 D1 L1 record from the Ligue 1 club in their last six in all competitions.

They have found the back of the net at least twice in each of their last three matches.

The concern will be a lack of clean sheets from them.

Monaco’s 1-0 win over Sturm Graz is the only clean sheet they have taken in their last dozen games this season in all competitions.


Real Sociedad vs Monaco Betting Advice

The home win at 13/10 takes preference for Europa League football betting on Thursday night* (odds recorded 18:30 GMT on 28th September 2021).

Sociedad are in very good form at the moment and look as if they are going to be tough to take down on home soil.

They are scoring well enough and look very strong in defence at home, but were under pressure away against PSV on Matchday 1.


Key Facts – Real Sociedad vs Monaco Betting Tip

  • Real Sociedad are W3 D2 L1 at home against French opposition
  • Real Sociedad drew 2-2 at PSV Eindhoven on Matchday 1
  • Monaco have lost 8 of 11 previous trips to Spain


There are a couple of things working against Monaco. One of them is their frankly terrible record in Spain.

The other has been a significant lack of clean sheets from them this season.

The French visitors aren’t doing badly in front of goal, therefore a bigger play is Sociedad to win & BTTS for 10/3* (odds recorded 18:30 GMT on 28th September 2021).
