RB Leipzig vs Real Sociedad Betting Tips

Welcome back to the midweek football as the UEL is back with a bang. RB Leipzig will welcome Real Sociedad to their home ground for their first Europa League round 16 clash match. 

RB Leipzig hasn’t had an interesting season in Europe as they were dumped out of the Champions League group stages, but they are one of the favorites to lift the Europa League.

Real Sociedad has done just enough to qualify for the Europa League round of 16, and it will be fascinating to see how they navigate this tricky clash.

Here we present the team news and match tips for this game.

RB Leipzig Form and Team News

RB Leipzig has been having a bad season, but their standards as they entered top 4 last weekend in the Bundesliga after winning FC Koln 3-1. They crashed out of the UCL group stages and will look to save their season with the UEL.

However, Leipzig has been in excellent form in their recent matches as they have won 4 of their last 5 games, losing only one (3-2 loss against Bayern Munich).

For the team news, RB Leipzig will be without Halstenberg, who is out with a knee injury.

Real Sociedad Form and Team News

Real Sociedad has been having a mixed season by their standards. In La Liga, they are not winning ( won 10) too much, and they are not losing (lost 5) too much either. In Europe, they have not been that bad either, as they have managed to qualify for the Europa League round of 16. 

Their last 5 games have clearly depicted their season as they have won 2, lost 1, and drawn 2 games. Though, in this run of games, they have prevented a loss against Atletico Madrid and Valencia. 

For the team news, Real Sociedad has some players out with injury, and they are Barrrenetxea, Fernandez, Januzaj, Montreal, and Zubimendi.

Our Tipster’s Angle

This match is tricky as it brings together a club reviving their season and a club in a stable ride almost all through their season. 

RB Leipzig is currently one of the favorites to lift this trophy, and Real Sociedad has it in them to stop their progress as they have stopped most top and average teams they have met this season.

Below are our tips for this game: 

Tip 1: RB Leipzig Win or Draw

This is the first time these teams will be clashing in Europe, and we think RB Leipzig is in a better position to take the win.

There is no away goal rule in UEFA competitions, and that would mean teams like Real Sociedad would no longer sit back, leaving them vulnerable to the fast-paced attack of RB Leipzig.

RB Leipzig is flying high in terms of current form, and we expect them not to lose in front of their home fans this Thursday.

For RB Leipzig to win or draw, the odds are 1.21 at the Casumo bookie.

Tip 2: Over 1.5 Goals

This is a tricky tip, but we believe that there would be at least 2 goals scored in this game. RB Leipzig has scored at least 2 goals in their last 6 games, even on challenging opponents like Bayern Munich. Also, their last 10 games in all competitions all have over 1.5 goals.

Real Sociedad doesn’t have the same impressive goal record or goal outcome in their games, but most of their last 10 games are littered with over 1.5 goals.

For there to be 2+ goals in this match, the odds are 1.20 at the Casumo bookie.


This is one of those matches that means a lot for the participating teams. RB Leipzig’s season has been filled with heartbreak, but the UEL is a chance to make amends.

Real Sociedad are not to be underrated because they have their sights on this trophy and have been proving a menace to big teams this season. 

Whichever outcome happens in this match, we think it would be exciting to watch.
