Real Sociedad to win

Real Sociedad have been much more solid than PSV coming into the game. It is also undeniable that Real Sociedad play the game in a league which has a standard than the Dutch Eredivisie. Last season, Real Sociedad went through the entire Europa League campaign without an away defeat. This included matches against the likes of Napoli and Manchester United. Imanol Alguacil’s men have made a good start to the season and it places them as a good candidate to back for a win.

Total goals under 2.5

Since conceding four goals in the opening game of the season, Real Sociedad have kept a clean sheet in three consecutive matches. The Spanish team has come up against winnable opposition during this run, but PSV offer a greater threat. In European games, however, PSV’s offence has been muted with only one goal scored in the two legs against Benfica.

Mikel Oyarzabal to score anytime

Mikel Oyarzabal has been in fine form for Real Sociedad in this early part of the 2021-2010 season. He has been able to score in three out of the last four games for Real Sociedad – including a brace against Cadiz during the weekend. As the first-choice penalty taker for Real Sociedad, Oyarzabal has more likelihood of scoring in this game and continuing his good form.

Real Sociedad look to repeat last season’s Europa League heroics

Home comfort for PSV

PSV Eindhoven have made a dream start to the new campaign. They’re currently on top of the league standings with four wins from four games and have conceded only three times.

The Dutch outfit would be playing in the Champions League group stages this season if not for the 2-1 aggregate loss to Benfica in the qualification stages. However, Schimdt’s side would be eager to make a strong start to the competition where they’d also play the likes of Sturm Graz and AS Monaco.

A winning start would be crucial to their cause since only two teams will be guaranteed progression to the next round.

Tough ask for Basque giants

The Basque giants have made a fairly decent start to the new campaign and are currently in fourth place in the league standings. They haven’t scored as freely as their Dutch opponents but Imanoli Alguacil’s men are a disciplined side and not easy to break down.

However, the team’s inability to score as freely as they should might haunt them in their Europa League campaign where they would be playing against two sides that have a lot of firepower upfront.

Players to watch

PSV – Mario Gotze

The former World Cup winner has started coming into his own in the Netherlands and scored three goals in six Champions league qualification games. While he might not be the same player he was at Dortmund, the 29-year-old’s experience is going to be crucial for his team’s chances of going all the way in the competition.

Real Sociedad – David Silva

The veteran Spaniard has pretty much done it all. At Sociedad, he’s the elderly statesman who brings calm to their midfield while adding much needed creativity in the final third. If the former Manchester City man is able to strike the right chords with Alexander Isaac, Real Sociedad could have a successful season.
