MONACO VS REAL SOCIEDAD PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Monaco finished last season with 3rd place in League 1, winning a place in the European Cup after a two-year absence. Niko Kovac has revived the team after the crisis, but there is still a lot of work to do if it wants to return to their heyday. It’s fair to say Monaco is starting the season quite disappointing, ranked 9th after the first 14 rounds in the domestic league. As a team with an offensive style, Monaco will have to be very careful against an old opponent like Sociedad, especially in the period of unstable performance in the last 3/4 matches. 4 matches have passed through Monaco only to concede 2 times, of which 3 matches have a low score. It will not be surprising if the representative of League 1 shows a pragmatic face in this important match.
Following the promotion momentum from last season, Real Sociedad is even leading La Liga and gradually becoming a force. There are not too many stars in the squad but this is an experienced team, Alguacil has shaped the pragmatic play for Sociedad. The first 4 matches were unbeaten, 4/6 points earned away from home showed old age. In the last 8 matches in the arena, the defense only conceded 4 goals and kept a clean sheet 5 times. However, Sociedad was not overestimated by Sieukeo in his explosive ability, with a performance of 1.25 goals still quite modest. With what has been shown, it is not surprising that the next match is tight and the goals are scarce.
There is no lack of caution from both teams because PSV is lurking behind. Both possess a well-organized defense, the tight game is predictable. In addition to the decline of Monaco’s attack, the probability of many goals appearing is very low.
Select: Under 2.5 FT.
Monaco playing at home is an advantage, but that doesn’t mean they will have an easy match. The recent decline in performance and the relatively unstable momentum make experts skeptical. Monaco is going through 5 consecutive matches without knowing a victory, including a 0-2 defeat against Brestois. Not to mention the confrontation history is favoring the away team with 1 win 1 draw.
Meanwhile, Real Sociedad’s performance is extremely impressive, with 9 wins and 17 consecutive unbeaten matches in all competitions. In the Europa League this season, Sociedad has not tasted defeat and their only victory took place away. The pragmatic playstyle and stable mentality of Alguacil’s students are not easily defeated. At least 1 point for a La Liga representative is an option worthy of trust.
Select: Real Sociedad FT.
European odds assess Monaco’s chances of winning slightly better with home-field advantage. However, this is an even match because Sociedad is very dangerous when playing in the bottom position. The draw result is a wise choice after what the two teams have shown.
Select: Draw FT.
The pragmatic play will be the first choice, along with the situation in Group B where it is difficult to contribute many goals. The struggle in the first half and inconclusiveness after the final whistle was an easy scenario.
