Real Sociedad Preview – Will La Real find their second win of the campaign and leapfrog opponents into second place?

Real Sociedad have been a surprise package in La Liga this season but there are some signs that their form is beginning to tail off. One point from their last three league matches has seen them drop out the top four (albeit on goal difference) and now 10 points behind leaders Real Madrid having been vying for top spot only a couple of weeks ago. Attention now switches to European action as they look to get back to winning ways.

La Real are in third place coming into this final group game with one win so far – that coming away to bottom place Sturm Graz in a 1-0 victory. They disappointing at home to the Austrians which is one of their three draws in the section with defeat last time out against Monaco meaning they need to win this game to finish second.


Our betting prediction
PSV win
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 7 December)


Wins have been hard to come by for this team at home in Europe over the past few seasons. One win in their last eight games does not make great reading or inspire confidence that they can get the result they need here.

Despite their struggles for home wins they did qualify for the knockout stage last season. They finished second in their group behind Napoli only to lose 4-0 on aggregate to Manchester United in the last-32.

PSV Preview – Can Dutch outfit get the result they need to confirm qualification?

PSV know that they cannot finish top of the section due to their head to head with Monaco so it’s all about finding a result which would see them finish in second spot above their opponents on Thursday. That means getting a point at least in San Sebastien.

The Dutch club have done what was required against the lowest ranked team in the section by taking six points from Sturm Graz that includes a 4-1 win in Austria back in September. It shows how crucial those games could be in terms of who finishes in the top two as they have not beaten anybody else to date in this campaign.

PSV come into this game in good form and are now unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions, a run which has seen them win five. Having been thumped 5-0 to Ajax prior to this period it was a much-needed return to winning ways and will hopefully have bolstered confidence. They sit in third place in the Eredivisie, just two points off the leaders.

There’s no shortage of match winners in this team either which will always give them a chance of getting a positive result. Eran Zahavi, Carlos Vinicius, Cody Gakpo and Bruma have all shone this season and are more than capable of making the diference here.
