Tip Reasoning

  • A draw will keep Monaco on top of Group B going into the final matchday, where they face minnows Sturm Graz.
  • Real Sociedad are unbeaten in all competitions for 17 games, a run which has featured nine wins and eight draws.
  • Monaco have drawn their last three matches, two of which finished 0-0.

Basques can earn draw against Monegasques 

This matchday five meeting of Monaco and Real Sociedad may need an early goal for it really catch fire as neither team will probably want to risk much.

Les Monegasques are in pole position with eight points, two points clear of their Basque visitors and with the potential bonus of facing group minnows Sturm Graz in their final game. Whether Nico Kovac feels that a draw on Thursday will be sufficient in the long term, beating a team that has not tasted defeat since the opening game of the season might be beyond his Monaco team anyway.

They have failed to win any of their last three – all against teams below them in Ligue 1 or this group – and not managed to score in two of those, which all finished as frustrating draws.

Real Sociedad arrive on the back of a goalless home draw with Valencia that saw them play out the final quarter of an hour a man down after Aritz Elustondo’s red card.

Visitors defend well but lack ability to unlock

Imanol Alguacil’s side can certainly defend, as only four goals conceded in their last seven outings demonstrates, but scoring has become a bit of an issue.

Los Txuri-Urdin will bank on the return of Spain international Mikel Oyarzabal making a difference, but he’s only seen 30 minutes of action in the last month and a half, so may not be fully up to speed.

It may be prudent to bet this game with a view that both sides will look to stay within their defensive structure and take what’s on offer if their opponents risk it, but neither might. Our conclusion is that the draw looks a good starting point and that a 0-0 result may offer the best value in correct score betting.
