Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in five of Real Sociedad’s seven Europa League games
  • RB Leipzig have netted in 12 of their last 13 away fixtures
  • Six of Leipzig’s seven European matches this season have seen both teams score

Can Sociedad use home advantage?

With away goals no longer a factor in determining who goes through, this tie is all square after the first leg ended 2-2 in Germany last week.

Both teams scored in that fixture, as they have in two of Sociedad’s three home European outings this season, a pair of 1-1 draws against Monaco and Sturm Graz.

Domestically, they have been keeping clean sheets at Anoeta, but RB Leipzig provide a completely different test to the likes of Granada and Getafe and will give that defence a thorough workout.

Leipzig’s strikers on fire on the road

RB Leipzig’s last away game was a 6-1 demolition of Hertha Berlin at the weekend, the sixth consecutive away game in which they have scored, with four of those matches seeing them net two or more.

Their defence remains a cause for concern though. The German outfit have kept just four clean sheets in 16 matches on their travels, of which just one has come in Europe.

Both teams have scored in four of their last five on the road, with the same statistic applying when throwing in home games too, suggesting there should be plenty of final third action in this one.

I predict both teams will score in this match, and I think RB Leipzig will sneak through, selecting a 2-1 victory to the German side for a correct score prediction.
