Real Sociedad hosts Athletic Bilbao in round 29 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Wednesday, April 7th at Reale Seguros Stadium (San Sebastian)
Real Sociedad has not been stable lately. The White-Blues won only two of the last five matches but took the trophy. In the Copa del Rey finals, they beat Athletic with a minimum score (1-0). However, Real Sociedad shows completely different results. It gained an away draw in the match against Real Madrid (1-1) but lost at home to Barcelona after two rounds (1-6). On the one hand, the Basques have won only two of their last five La Liga matches, with a total goal difference of 7-8. On the other hand, they won the Spanish Cup.

Athletic Bilbao cannot win four matches in a row. The team gained its last victory on March 7 in the match of the 26th round of the Spanish Championship (2-1 over Granada). After that, the Red-Whites played four matches. They lost to Atlético Madrid (1-2), tied with Celta (0-0) and Eibar (1-1), and then lost to Real Sociedad in the already mentioned Spanish Cup final (0-1). On average, over the last five matches, Athletic players have scored 0.8 goals per game and conceded 1. Only in one of the last five matches did the team manage to score more goals.
No draws have been recorded in the last five head-to-head matches between these teams. Real Sociedad gained four victories, and each of those matches ended with a minimum margin. Athletic won only one game with a 2-goal lead. Interestingly, both teams scored only in two out of five cases, but the visitors invariably scored in four matches. Real Sociedad have managed to score in the second half in three of their last five matches. And Athletic Bilbao conceded in the same number of the last matches. There is a feeling that the hosts will manage to upset the opponents’ goalkeeper in the second half.
Prediction for the match: Real Sociedad to score over 0.5 goals in the second half
