Third-placed Real Sociedad will be hosting the second-placed PSV Eindhoven on the final day of the group stages of the Europa Cup 2021-22 at Reale Arena. The game will be an interesting one as it is a do or die for both the teams if they want to qualify for the play-offs. Monaco is sitting comfortably at the top of Group B with 11 points, and a virtually guaranteed a place in the next round irrespective of the result of this match.
While Real Sociedad will have to win the game and get 3 points to move to second place, PSV will be happy with a draw as a single point will see them through as the second-placed team, who will play against one of the eight sides which finish third in their respective groups in the Champions League.
The football betting sites have given some pretty short odds to Real Sociedad in this match.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Real Sociedad vs PSV Eindhoven UEFA Europa League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Reale Aena, San Sebastian on the 9th of December 2021.
This will be just the second time that Real Sociedad faces PSV in a competition, with their first meeting being in September this year in the reverse fixture played at the Philips Stadion in the Netherlands, which ended in a 2-2 draw.
Real Sociedad has its back firmly against the wall, having lost three matches in the last couple of weeks, and is now languishing at the fifth spot in La Liga. In comparison, PSV has had a good run so far, after beginning their campaign with a draw against Thursday’s opponents. In their past 6 games, PSV has not lost a single game, winning 4 matches band drawing out 2.
La Real will be missing the services of players like David Silva, Mikel Merino, Nacho Monreal, and Carlos Fernandez due to injuries, while PSV too has its own woes with injured players. Israeli star Eran Zahavi, Shurandy Sambo, and Ryan Thomas are likely to miss the game.
Given the exceptional run that PSV has had, especially in the last few games, we predict that they will easily hold La Real to a draw, and score a point to hold on to the second spot.
Bet on the Draw.
Both the teams have managed to keep clean sheets in 3 out of their past 6 games. It is therefore likely that the upcoming game could be a low-scoring one. There are also some very important players from both teams. All of this points to a match that is unlikely to be very free-flowing or full of goals. With the current odds on offer, we feel comfortable taking a punt on 1-1 being the correct score at the end of the match.
