Real Sociedad vs AS Monaco Prediction: Europa League Match on 30.09.2021
Some of the best teams in the Europa League this season find themselves in Group B, and it promises to be an interesting fight to see which team progresses out of the group. Real Sociedad and Monaco clash on matchday two.
Europa League Preview
Monaco will be looking to move clear at the top of Group B on Thursday evening, as they travel to Real Sociedad. Many will expect Monaco to top this Europa League group after an impressive end to the season in Ligue 1 last term. They made hard work of their opening fixture in the competition two weeks ago, as they just about managed to overcome a resilient Strum Graz side at the Stade Louis II. The visitors seemed happy to take a point from the game, and showed nothing by way of an attacking threat in the fixture. However, the French giants eventually made the breakthrough with just under half an hour remaining of the game, as Krepin Diatta broke the deadlock. Monaco have turned a corner in the league since that win, as they have won both of their last two league fixtures. Both games against St Etienne and Clermont Foot were won 3-1.
Real Sociedad were involved in potentially one of the best games in the Europa League on the opening matchday. They played out a very entertaining draw in the Netherlands against PSV, with the match eventually ending in a 2-2 draw. Sociedad had taken the lead in that game after goals from Adnan Januzaj and Alexander Isak, but a second half strike from Cody Gakpo ensured that a point was all that they were going to get from their trip to the Netherlands. However, like Monaco, Sociedad have also won their last two league fixtures, and have scored four times in games against Granada and Elche.
Real Sociedad vs AS Monaco Head to Head
Monaco and Sociedad will meet for the very first time in a European competition on Thursday. Sociedad have won twice in four meetings against French sides, while Monaco have been beaten on eight of the eleven games that they have played away from home against clubs from La Liga.
Real Sociedad vs AS Monaco Prediction
Monaco’s record away from home against Spanish sides is a huge concern coming into this fixture. However, Sociedad’s record at home in the Europa League also isn’t strong, winning once in their last six. An entertaining draw could be on the agenda, with over 2.5 goals.
