Tip Reasoning

  • Real Sociedad are unbeaten in their last four Europa League away games (3 draws, 1 win).
  • Seven of the last ten PSV Eindhoven games have featured fewer than four goals.
  • Eight of the last ten Real Socieded matches have featured fewer than four goals.

A dose of reality for Dutch destroyers 

A classic matchup between one of the best defences in La Liga and the most exciting attacking force in Dutch football presently will take place at Philips Stadion this Thursday.

Real Sociedad are solid and PSV Eindhoven pulsating at the moment, so it will be interesting to see which style of football prevails.

Imanol Alguacil’s men travel to Eindhoven on the back of three straight clean sheets and with the confidence that three consecutive wins provides.

La Real’s only defeats in their last eight games have come at Atletico Madrid and Barcelona – and they won all of the other six – so there’s an argument to make that they should see off PSV’s challenge.

But Rood-witten have become such an irresistible force under Roger Schmidt that they really could justify their odds and take all three points from this Group B opener.

They ended AZ’s seven-month unbeaten home record with a 3-0 road win at the weekend, which allowed them to take off three of their front four with 30 minutes to go.

Our belief, however, is that Real Sociedad’s plan will be to sit deep and offer PSV very little opportunity to break them down, so we feel this ought not to be a goal-laden game.

PSV’s attacking reputation ensures a good return from backing fewer than four goals in the game, which would have landed in the vast majority of both sides’ recent games.

We can’t call a winner in this and will look for value at 1-1 in the correct score betting.
