Real Sociedad has had a terrific start to its season. It is currently at the top of the La Liga 2021-22 standings and is also doing very well in the Europa League. That it has managed to achieve this start despite some serious injury concerns is all the more impressive. The fight for the top spot of the La Liga is quite intense as Real Madrid and Real Sociedad exchange places pretty regularly.
That makes this next match against Athletic Bilbao all the more interesting. The 'Basque Derby' as matches between Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao are known, is often an intense affair and this will be one of the matches to watch out for in the La Liga this weekend.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Real Sociedad vs Athletic Bilbao La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Reale Arena, San Sebastian, Spain on the 31st of October 2021.
We think this contest between Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao is going to be a tough gritty one. This derby tends to be one where both teams are cautious and worried about losing rather than going for a win. No team has scored more than one goal in this derby in the previous four matches that they have played. With Athletic Bilbao being brilliant in defense and Real Sociedad being good in attack, we sense a draw in this match. The odds are certainly worth a punt on it happening.
Bet on the Draw in this match.
There have been under 2.5 goals scored in all five of the previous matches between Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao. In fact, their most recent match was a draw (1-1) and we would not be surprised to see that scoreline repeated. We don't see this as a high-scoring match, both because of the recent history and the kind of football they have played this season.
