Real Sociedad vs Athletic Prediction 12 March 2017

Tournament: Spanish La Liga
Location: Anoeta Stadium
Match date: 12.03.2017 at 11:00

On March 12 2017 at 11:00 at the Anoeta Stadium in the regular game of the 27th matchday of the Spanish La Liga the local Real Sociedad play against Athletic.

Real Sociedad aren’t going to give up the opportunity to take the 4th position in the standings of the league. Even though they are a bit unstable in the current season, they are still just one point below the Champions League zone. Yet, Atletico Madrid are their rivals in that race which is a pretty serious challenge, in fact. Moreover, Real Sociedad are not always successful enough in the home matches as they only won against Celta and Osasuna in the latest matches and lost to Sevilla, Villarreal and Eibar.

As for Athletic, they gained 41 points in their 26 games played since the start of the season and its four points below the Europa League zone. The Basks look great in the home matches yet their results are really poor in the away matches. Athletic only gained 8 points in all of their away matches during this season which is 12 games already. In the latest five away games they lost four times and drew once which is a very poor results, in fact.

The teams drew in most of the games played between them during the latest three years. Yet, in the first round match of the current season Athletic won 3:2. The Basks are still more or less convenient competitors for Real Sociedad as they lost to them only four times since 1998. Considering the fact that Athletic look really poor in the away matches, we think that Real Sociedad will manage to win in the upcoming game.
