Copa del Rey will offer us some interesting duels this week and one of them is surely this one. Villarreal will welcome Real Sociedad in the second leg of last 16 round, Wednesday evening from 18:00, UK Time. The Basques won the first leg, 3-1 at home, being in pole-position to qualify in Quarter Finals.

The last weekend has been a decent one if we talk about combos, with a great profit Saturday, and with an unexpected loss Sunday evening. Anyway, single bets saved us, bringing a good profit in the end.


  • There is no surprise to see Villarreal having the best defense in Spain at the moment, even better than Atletico's one.
  • Even so, they conceded three goals in the first leg of this cup round, having a very difficult mission now.
  • More exactly, The Yellow Submarine has to win by at least three goals to qualify, but a 2-0 victory would be enough too, since they scored an away goal.
  • Villarreal lost only two home games in the last four months, 1-2 vs Osmanlispor in Europa League and 0-2 vs Alaves in LaLiga.
  • Taking a look at the odds, the hosts are in pole-position to win the game (1.85), but they are underdogs in the qualification race (3.80).
  • I said that Villarreal have the best defense in LaLiga, but even so, they failed to keep a clean sheet in the last four official matches.

Real Sociedad

  • Real Sociedad looked very strong this season in the domestic league and also in Copa del Rey.
  • They are almost qualified in the next round, but there are still 90 minute to play.
  • The Basques are coming here after a clear defeat in Primera Division, 0-4 to Sevilla in front of the own fans.
  • It is good to know that Sociedad ticked four wins in the last five official trips, the bad result being recorded at Deportivo La Coruna (1-5).
  • Sociedad had big problems in the last four trips here, ticking only one draw and three defeats.
  • They scored only once, conceding seven goals.
