Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Villarreal and Real Sociedad face each other in a highly-anticipated game at Estadio de la Ceramica on day 21 of the new La Liga campaign. The Yellow Submarine failed to impress in a goalless draw with Huesca, with the team having no more than eight goal attempts in the Estadio El Alcoraz clash. Villarreal aim to return to winning ways in La Liga as soon as possible, but the game against Real Sociedad will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
La Real, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Real Betis at the weekend, with the team conceding two late goals in San Sebastian. The Basques aim to regain their spot in top four, but beating Villarreal on the road is easier said than done. Share of spoils is on the cards, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Ramiro Funes Mori):
Argentina isn’t known to produce great talents in defence but Ramiro Jose Funes Mori is an exception. The 25-year-old started his football career in the United States with FC Dallas. He won an MLS talent competition to get into their youth team but it was less than a year before he moved back to Argentina.
Mori joined River Plate as a youth player in 2008 and progressed to their senior team within three years. The young defender is nothing short of a club legend at River Plate having won six titles with the team. More than the titles and his performances, it was his performances in important games that is still vividly remembered.
