Villarreal is hosting Real Sociedad in tonight´s game where both teams are fighting for the place in Europe for next season. Villarreal is now in a lot better situation being 5th in the league with 57 points, as Real Sociedad is standing at the 8th position with 51 points. Both team have 3 games left so there´s not much points left to achieve.
Villarreal is the team that have been in much better form after the league continued compared to their opponent. Their record is 6W 1D 1L after the break with the only loss being against Barcelona.
They are missing some players like C.Bacca, V.Iborra and G.Moreno but it has not been a problem in their last games as players like S.Cazorla and G.Moreno have been in great form lately and i believe them to be able to win the game for the home team today also.
Real Sociedad on the other hand have been having some troubles after the break. Their record is 1W 2D 5L and they have lost to teams like Alaves, Celta Vigo and Granada. They are also missing some players, most notably A.Illarramendi and a.Januzaj. Their form is so bad right now that it seems they will lose their place in the Europa League positions.
For me Villarreal is a big favorite coming in to this match. Their confidence is much higher and they seem to be in much better form in the ending of the season.
