Both scored in the first leg, just like we predicted. The game in San Sebastian ended 1-1. Axel Disasi scored for the visitors, while Mikel Merino did it for the home side. If you like to mix things through the props, you should know that the referee showed five total yellow cards. Also, the first half ended 1-0 favoring Monaco.
If there’s something you can expect from these two, it’s goals. Their other encounter finished with a 2-1 victory for Real Sociedad.
AS Monaco and Real Sociedad are two of seven teams that remain unbeaten in the UEL Group Stage.
The French side leads Group B with eight points thanks to a 2-2-0 record, four goals for, and two against. No other team has allowed fewer goals than them. The Spaniards come in second with six points thanks to a 1-3-0 record, five goals for, and four against.
After a rocky start to the season, Monaco recently became a reliable soccer pick when playing at home. They’re 4-2-0 in their last six games, scoring in five matches and finishing with a clean sheet three times.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad have eight straight road games without losing. They won five of those games and scored two or more goals six times. Summing up, they also are fighting mano a mano with Real Madrid for La Liga first place.
Last weekend, Monaco drew 2-2 to Lille, the current Ligue 1 champions. Real Sociedad drew 0-0 to Valencia. Aware that winning the domestic league is very difficult, both are focusing on winning the UEL. A team from Spain won the title in seven of the last 10 editions.
Monaco can lock first place with a victory. Real Sociedad can secure a spot in the next round with a victory if PSV lose against Sturm.
Talent to Spare
We’re talking about talented rosters. When it comes to AS Monaco, the list includes Kevin Volland, Wissam Ben Yedder, and Aurelien Tchouameni. Several powerhouses are fighting to sign Tchouameni, including Chelsea and Real Madrid.
Ben Yedder leads the team with seven goals in all competitions. He’s followed by Volland with three. The list also includes veteran Cesc Fabregas. He’s questionable due to injury, but his experience will help the team whether he plays or not.
Regarding Real Sociedad, the list includes Mikel Oyarzabal, Alexander Isak, Aritz Elustondo, and David Silva. Oyarzabal leads the team with six goals. He’s followed by Isak with three. Silva’s role is like Fabregas’, but he’s 100% healthy.
Oyarzabal and Isak are the main reasons for you to include the Spanish side in your betting online ticket. Oyarzabal didn’t start against Valencia, allowing him to be at 100% for this crucial matchup.
Nacho Monreal and Asier Illarramendi are out due to injury. The thing is that no matter who plays, both must go all-in.
Monaco vs Real Sociedad Final Analysis, Predictions
Buckle up because a thrilling game awaits us. More than 2½ goals were scored in three of Monaco’s last four games at home. With what’s on the line, I expect the total to go over 2½ once again. I also expect Monaco to take the reins right from the start. This is one of those games in which playing at home should make the difference.
