As part of one of the matches of the group stage of the Europa League, the players of PSV and Real Sociedad will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this meeting? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this meeting.
PSV players last season became the silver medalist of the Dutch championship, having the opportunity to start in the LCH qualification. However, it was not possible to reach the group stage. The team from Eindhoven was able to pass the "Mityullan", but stumbled on the "Benfica". The defeat from the Lisbon team remains the only one for the club in 11 matches. On the domestic arena, PSV was able to win the Dutch Super Cup, defeating Ajax with a score of 4: 0, and in the championship won all four meetings with a total score of 14:3. In the previous round, the hosts defeated AZ with a defeat of 3:0.
Last season, Real Sociedad was able to take fifth place in the Primera, which allowed it to get a direct ticket to the group stage of the Europa League. In the new season, the Basques held four matches as part of the Primera. It is worth noting that in the opening round, the San Sebastians lost to Barcelona with a score of 2: 4, after which they celebrated victories in games with Rayo Vallecano, Levante and Cadiz. In the Spanish championship, San Sebastians are in fourth place, remaining from the top three by 1 point.
Statistics and figures:
- PSV is a small favorite of the meeting;
- The Dutch team has a 4-match series without defeats;
- Real Sociedad has a 3-match winning streak;
- Previously, the rivals did not intersect in face-to-face meetings.
I believe that in this meeting, the opponents will be able to submit at least 10 corners. It is worth noting that in games with the participation of these teams, this bet is often played. The face-to-face meeting of the rivals should be productive and fruitful in every sense.
