Real Sociedad vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction 14 January 2023

Tournament: La Liga
Location: Anoeta Stadium, San Sebastian
Match date: 01/14/2023 at 20:00

The La Liga matchday 17 will give us an interesting confrontation between Real Sociedad and Athletic.

Real Sociedad have been consistently finishing in the Europa League zone in recent years, and now they are narrowly third with 32 points and a goal difference of 23-17. Moreover, after misfires against Betis (0-2) and Valencia (1-1), Txuri Urdin took turns defeating Sevilla (2-1), Osasuna (2-0) and Almeria (2-0).

Athletic have 26 points with goal statistics of 24-14 - this is the seventh line of the standings, only two points behind the top four. In the last five meetings, the Lions defeated Villarreal 1-0 and Valladolid 3-0, had a 0-0 draw with Betis and 0-0 with Osasuna, and capitulated to Girona 1-2.

Both teams are strong at the home arena, but Athletic away are very rarely competitive. Our prediction: in a low-scoring game, Real Sociedad will be a little closer to success.
