An interesting game from El Madrigal on Wednesday as Real Sociedad take on Villarreal in a replay of the La Liga game that took place a couple of weeks ago. David Moyes Real Sociedad come into this game off the back of an amazing 1-0 victory over Barcelona. With Vela and Canales up front Sociedad have the players to hurt anyone but this is a really tough ask as Villarreal have been superb of late, especially at home where they have won seven of the last nine. Moyes is setting his team up to be solid defensively and so far they have looked good at the back with one exception the 4-0 loss to Villareal in the Madrigal on the 7th December.
With Villarreal looking to continue their strong form this one is a tough one to call. Villarreal manager Marcelino will most likely put out a strong team here as this is a competition that they could realistically win. With Uche and Vietto up top Villareal have looked dangerous in attack and have a solid defence built around Paulista and Ruiz. The yellow submarines also have quality on the bench in the form of the two Dos Santos brothers and both are game changing midfielders, who have never quite fulfilled their potential.
I am taking both teams to score here. I think Real Socided were a little unlucky to lose 4-0 in the league game at th Madrigal and have put together some great results since that game, including the win over Barcelona last weekend. Its a tough ask for Sociedad to get a result here but I think they will make it a good game. Probably coming up short in a 2-1 loss.
