Reason For Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad Betting Tips
This could be a standout amongst the most fascinating games this end of the week in La Liga and it’s a decent trial of where the two sides are at. Atleti have put in two or three substantially more persuading displays as of late and will want to back that up here against extreme resistance. However Sociedad are solid going ahead and will want to demonstrate they have what it takes to really get in the blend for a best six and perhaps even best four complete, by getting an outcome.
There’s reason to figure we could see goals at the two finishes in this one. The majority of that originates from Sociedad who are a standout amongst the most adventurous sides in La Liga. 77% of their matches this term have seen the two teams score and with 2.08 goals for each game, they have the third best goalscoring record in the division. They’ve played 20 focused fixtures this term and have just failed to score once, which is a fantastic record to have so they are perhaps one of only a handful couple of teams that will take on Atleti with honest to goodness reason to trust they can score goals.
However protectively they are vulnerable now and again with a league clean sheet ratio of only 15% and they endured a humiliating 3-2 home defeat against Segunda B resistance in the Copa del Rey in midweek. They will be up against an Atleti side that hit five last end of the week at Levante, the second time this season they’ve scored five goals away from home in a league match. Clearly there is still a lot of attacking quality there and it’ll be a frustration to Diego Simeone that they’ve not showcased that on a more steady basis.
Atleti battle most when they are up against teams that park the transport yet they will get more space against this Sociedad team who do submit bodies forward and that certainly recommends we should see a more open game than fans at the Wanda Metropolitano are utilized to. The hosts do have issues at appropriate back however, with Juanfran and Sime Vrsaljko battling with wounds and that could be a worry against a Sociedad side that are solid down the flanks.
Backing Both Teams to Score may be worth considering therefore. Atleti have also been shockingly vulnerable while shielding set-pieces and crosses this term, which is also a stress for them up against Willian Jose who is solid in the air. The Sociedad striker has gotten in all of his last three appearances in La Liga and backing Willian Jose to score anytime could be justified regardless of a shudder here as well.
As far as the outcome, there appears to be value in backing the Draw, given 60% of Atletico Madrid home games this term in La Liga have wound up level.
Atleti have won their last 4 home games against Real Sociedad to nil. They’ve won 4 of the last 5 overall yet lost in San Sebastian last term.
