Real Sociedad v PSV Eindhoven Betting Tips

Real Sociedad have been ridiculously strong when it comes to their defensive home record in La Liga and they’ll hope to repeat something similar when they clash with PSV in the final Europa League group clash as they go in search of the three points.

Imanol Alguacil’s side finished fifth in La Liga and were anticipated to finish in the top two of Europa League Group B, although wins have been at a premium in a competitive group and Real have struggled to get wins on the board against some of the other strong teams in Europe.

Can Real Sociedad Win When It Matters?

The Spanish side have won one, drawn three and lost one of their five games in the Europa League this season. They opened with an entertaining 2-2 draw at PSV and then drew 1-1 with Monaco, with the team sitting pretty after a 1-0 triumph away at Sturm Graz. However, they were then held by their Swiss opponents before a 2-1 defeat away to Monaco.

Every bookmaker is going odds-on that Real Sociedad claim three points when it matters against Dutch opponents, with domestic form being a slight concern right now. Namely there is a lack of goals being scored, with Espanyol handing them a recent 1-0 defeat and that was preceded by a goalless draw against Valencia.

Indeed, while Sociedad has only conceded one goal in seven games at Anoeta, the bottom line is that they struggling to find the net. Therefore, they could be a touch on the short side when coming up against a PSV side who only need a draw to go through.

Can PSV Get the Right Result When Heading to Spain?

PSV are two points clear of Real Sociedad and simply need a point in Spain to make sure that they line up against one of the Champions League third-placed sides in the last 32 stage of the competition. Eindhoven have avoided defeat in four of their five games played and Roger Schmidt’s side have not been beaten when taking to the road in their matches at Monaco and Sturm Graz.

As you might expect from one of the leading teams in the Eredivisie, there is plenty to recommend this team from a win ratio point-of-view, with the team currently six games unbeaten at the time of writing, even if this came directly after a 5-0 hammering at the hands of Ajax.

Perhaps a good bet could be both teams to score in this game. PSV cannot afford to simply defend and it might be that falling a goal behind means that they have to come out and attack. Therefore, it could be worth looking at Over 2.5 Goals for this clash.
