PSV Eindhoven vs Real Sociedad Betting Tips

PSV Eindhoven Form and Team News

PSV Eindhoven have been one of the two best teams in the last few seasons in Eredivisie, but they haven’t been able to win any European silverware however. This season at least they can make some changes up front and try replicating their league form in the European circuit. They are part of Group B which also consists of the likes of Real Sociedad, Monaco and Sturm. By the look of it, we can say this group is comparatively easier than some of the other groups. The recent record of the PSV Eindhoven has been great winning as many as eight games in the last ten matches. They are facing Real Sociedad in the first game of their Europa campaign on Friday.

Roger Schmidt has been instrumental in handling the PSV side to newer heights considering where they were a few seasons before that. Schmidt after taking over has shown consistency in terms of the results achieved. Carlos Vinicius, Eran Zahavi, Noni Madueke, Max Romero and Vertessen combine to form the forward line. German mainstay Gotze, Gakpo, Bruma and Ibrahim Sangare will be in the middle of the park while Philip Max, Ramalho, Teze and co. constitute the defense line. Swiss Mvogo will guard the goal.  

Real Sociedad Form and Team News

Real Sociedad are coming into the Europa League on the back of a sedate start to their league games. They are presently placed in the fourth position after four games. They have won three games while losing one game as well. Real Sociedad in the last ten games have won a terrific seven times while losing three games. Real Sociedad would need to put their best foot forward in this season and try to win as many games as possible. For that however they will need to replicate what they have been doing right over the past few seasons and hope for the best. 

Imanol Alguacil Barrenetxea, the Spain national has been at the helm for over three seasons games now and he has been doing a decent enough job to keep the Sociedad team afloat. But Imanol cannot afford to be complacent and should be able to garner results as well considering the experience he has in Spanish football. Swedish sensation Alexander Isak has been in top form in the last season and he is likely to continue contributing while the likes of veteran David Silva too will be vying for his chance to win a silverware after this stint with Man City earlier.
