Our football match prediction:
Real Sociedad will be looking to build on a come-from-behind win over Celta Vigo when they welcome Villarreal at their Estadio Municipal de Anoeta on Friday evening. La Real proved their worth in the opening match of the season, but they will have a big fish to fry in the game against the Yellow Submarine. Former Las Palmas striker Willian Jose scored the winner against Celta and all eyes will be on the Brazilian attacker when the two teams face each other in San Sebastian on Matchday 2. Villarreal are not regarded as good travelers, but given the quality of Fran Escriba’s team, the visitors are likely to grab something from Friday’s football match. A man to watch in the away team will be former Sevilla attacker Carlos Bacca, who joined the club in the summer transfer window. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two teams will share the spoils at “Anoeta”.
