Villarreal are in pole position to secure a top six spot thanks to some strong form since the break. Real Sociedad have been going in the opposite direction and could find it tough at the Estadio de la Cerámica on Monday.

Villarreal Form


Villarreal appear to have secured a top six spot in La Liga with a top four spot still possible. The Yellow Submarine have won six of their last eight La Liga matches.

Javier Calleja’s side drew 2-2 against Sevilla before a 2-0 home win against Valencia. Villarreal won 2-0 at Real Betis, lost 4-1 at home against Barcelona but bounced back with a 3-1 win at Getafe.

Santi Cazorla scored two penalties and Rubén Peña wrapped up a comfortable victory. Villarreal had 59% possession and 1.95-0.58 expected goals.

Real Sociedad Form


The break came at a bad time for Real Sociedad who had won seven of their eight previous matches in all competitions. Imanol Alguacil’s side have now lost five of their last seven La Liga matches to slip out of the top six.

Sociedad lost 2-1 at Getafe but bounced back with a 2-1 home win against lowly Espanyol. They followed up with a 1-1 draw at Levante before a disappointing 3-2 home defeat to Granada.

Real Sociedad will be wondering how they lost the match after having 68% possession, 19-4 shots and 1.19-0.31 expected goals.

Real Sociedad still have a chance of qualifying for the Europa League, if they fail in that objective Alguacil could be looking for another job.
