After a torrid start to the season la Real are now flying with their success in the Basque derby at the weekend their fifth successive league win.
The side from San Sebastián are very much in the hunt to claim fourth spot for the second successive year, yet Villarreal also harbour hopes of a return to the Champions League.
The Yellow Submarine have already put in impressive performances against La Liga's top three sides, drawing with both Atletico and Real Madrid and narrowly losing at Barcelona.
William Hill price the side from Castellon at 21/10 (3.10) to claim a win in the Basque Country this evening, with Real Sociedad offered at 7/5 (2.40).
Naturally with two attacking exciting sides meeting, the temptation is to back both teams to score. Yet this is offered at just 8/13 (1.62) which is a price only worthy of consideration from the most serious of punters.
Instead, backing la Real to score over 1.5 goals at 23/20 (2.15) looks to be a much more attractive option. This bet has paid out 13 times in competitive fixtures this season involving the Basques including in each of their last four matches.
Furthermore, Villarreal have conceded two or more goals in four of their last five games, meaning there is a great chance of this selection proving to be a correct one, once more.
