Real Sociedad to Win

The win against the same rival in the Copa del Rey final meant a lot for Real Sociedad, and we expect them to get another win against Athletic Club on that wave of positive energy. In addition to this, Real Sociedad has won four of their previous five head-to-head matches, and they have been the better team this season. And while they are dealing with injuries, not many of their most important players are affected.

Both Teams to Score: No

Although this game should be a bit different than the cup final from a few days ago since the stakes are not as high, we still expect to see a cautious play from both teams and not many goals. In the previous five games between these two teams, three times the matches have ended without both teams scoring. We think that this tradition could continue in the upcoming duel.

Total Goals Under 2.5

As we already mentioned, we don’t expect to see many goals here. First of all, three of the previous five head-to-head matches between Sociedad and Bilbao have gone under 2.5. Additionally, Sociedad has gone under 2.5 total goals in four of their last five games, while Bilbao did it in three of their last five. Sociedad also concedes only 0.86 goals per game at home, while Bilbao is not that efficient away from home with 1.07 goals scored on average. So, under 2.5 goals seems like a reasonable prediction.

Real Sociedad vs Athletic Club preview: Another Basque derby in five days

After the belated Copa del Rey final for 2020 on Saturday, the two most popular Basque teams will meet once again, this time in La Liga. Let’s take a closer look at the two teams.

Real Sociedad

After 34 years without a major trophy, Real Sociedad has a lot of reasons to celebrate. Winning the Spanish Cup against their Basque rivals will give them a huge boost of confidence for the upcoming league matches, in which they will fight for a spot in the Europa League. Sociedad is one point behind Villarreal and Betis in this race and they’ve lost two games in a row in La Liga. Their biggest problem at the moment is a long injury list, with many players questionable for the upcoming match against Bilbao.

Athletic Club

The team from Bilbao will be disappointed after losing the cup final to their fierce rivals, but at least they will have another chance to win Copa del Rey since they’ll be playing against Barcelona in the 2021 final as well. In the league, Athletic Club is not in the best form since they’ve only won once in the previous five games, although they’ve also lost just once and drawn three times. Luckily, the team only has one injured player, Oler Zarraga.
