One of the most attractive games of this Round of 16 of the King’s Cup in Spain, is the one to be played at Estadio Municipal de Anoeta, when Real Sociedad receives the visit of Villarreal.
The year starts hard enough for a Real Sociedad who knows he has to start as he finished 2016, where he finished in fifth place because of the difference of goals that has his rival of Villarreal turn.
Thus, the txuriurdin set knows that after facing Villarreal they receive Sevilla who is a direct rival for Champions League, but for Eusebio Sacristán all the tournaments are important and so with the inclusion of Joseba Zaldua, who will replace the injured Carlos Martínez Has decided to put the eleven gala, and well if against an adversary of inferior category as Valladolid, Eusebio barely introduced changes because before a tough opponent like Villarreal is not expected to be rotations.
Meanwhile, the directors of Fran Escribá also had an excellent 2016, the yellow submarine finished in Champions League and this new year wants to continue on the winning track, six games that do not know defeat and in Anoeta want to continue to extend the streak.
Of course, the disadvantage that Escribá has is the number of injured, since he will not be able to count with six players that normally would be the starters, as well as the known casualties of Soldier, Cherysev and Musacchio for injuries and Bakambu for being with his Selection in the African Cup, have been joined at the last minute those of Bruno and Víctor Ruiz, which reduces, and much, the potential of Villarreal.
Thus, we believe that Real Sociedad has a great opportunity to get a good result and get better conditions for the return, playing at home only add a defeat and was in the first game against Real Madrid and after that added good results as the 2 -0 on Atletico Madrid and 1-1 against Barcelona and then against a Villarreal with important losses, we believe that can be well saved. Therefore, due to the odds offered by bookmakers, we believe that the alternative of No Tie in favor of the locals is good and more if in case of ending the match equaled, we are returned the bet.
