Real Sociedad were leading La Liga but have now failed to win in nine matches in all competitions. Two of their last three defeats came against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Athletic Bilbao have not been at their best in recent weeks with a draw my best bet.

Athletic bilbao is in considerable form where as real soceidad is in without a win from the last 4 games hence I hope there will not be easy game for both and may be ended as a draw.

One of Europe's friendliest derbies, but not on Thursday. A crossroads and three extremely important points are at stake - for both teams! It is possible to say that it is the knife to the throat of these two gangs here in La Liga, but at the same time we do not get away from the fact that Real Sociedad, after getting a head start on the season, has now been noted for six straight points losses, and three straight losses ahead of Thursday's meeting.

Time to reverse the negative trend, there is soon no other way out and even though you actually still - at the time of writing - have a third place intact, the team has played fewer games during, which means that Sociedad can slip down to a sixth place. There may not be any collapse yet, but if you continue on the beaten track for another couple of rounds, the collapse will undoubtedly be a reality soon. Also for Athletic Bilbao, this is of course one of the most important matches of the season, a derby after all, and we all know what a win in a derby means, it tends to speed up teams - moral boost and so on. And Bilbao in particular is currently dependent on a three-pointer, only 5 wins, there have been 15 rounds into the league game and if you lose on Thursday, it may very well mean that you are much closer to the relegation line. At the time of writing, you only have three points down to the wrong side of that line.

Careful approach?

Neither Athletic Bilbao nor Real Sociedad can afford to lose this match, as I said, a defeat for Sociedad means a fourth straight loss here in the league game and then it looks undeniably dark. Bilbao have only one win in the last six rounds at the same time, and therefore it is undeniably time to win. With that said, we are convinced that we will see a cautious approach from both teams on Thursday.

Bilbao basically always focus first and foremost on the defensive, and it shows when we take a closer look at their line of results, only four goals conceded here at home, while actually going strong. They suffer most from their lousy numbers away from home. Real Sociedad is also one of the strongest teams in the series away from home, and it makes us believe that Sociedad manages to stand up well here. I  there fore expect to witness a close battle, and as I said, two cautious teams, which suggests that it may well end in a draw. I will therefore test a penny on the middle sign on the 1 × 2 market, and I do this to a sky-high 3 in odds

  • Athletic Bilbao have drawn 3 of their last 6 matches (La Liga).
  • Real Sociedad have failed to win in their last 9 matches (all competitions).
  • Real Sociedad have drawn 6 of their last 9 matches (all competitions)
