Despite both sides having plenty of talented attacking players, the smart money should be going on a low scoring game on Saturday evening

A run of just one win in their last nine league matches has seen Real Sociedad slip to sixteenth place in La Liga.

The Basques face a tough encounter on Saturday night against a Villarreal side who have recorded four wins and a draw in their last five game.

Team news

Midfielder Bruno Soriano and striker Nicola Sansone remained injured for Villarreal.

Real Sociedad should have centre-back Inigo Martinez back from injury for the game, although full-back Carlos Martinez and midfielder David Zurutuza are doubts.

Low scoring encounter on the cards

The Yellow Submarine have been grinding out results in recent weeks and three of their last four wins have come by a 1-0 scoreline.

La Real, on the other hand, have seen the goals on the road dry up after a prolific start to the season.

The Basques have netted just three times in their last 450 minutes away from home in the league, and their poor run in all competitions means they are low on confidence.

Tips and predictions

Under 2.5 goals is priced at evens (2.00) and looks a smart selection given both teams' respective results.

This bet has paid out in four of La Real's last six away games and in five of Villarreal's last six league encounters.
