Monaco vs Real Sociedad preview, team news, betting tips & prediction – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Real Sociedad travel to France in their fifth Europa League game of the season, knowing that nothing but three points are needed to secure progression to the next round of the competition.
AS Monaco are currently on top of Group B and have a two point lead over the Spaniards.
With PSV in third place and only a point behind Sociedad, David Silva and co would be desperate for a result in France.
AS Monaco haven’t had the best of campaigns in Ligue 1 but they have been very good in Europe where they are yet to taste defeat. Niko Kovac has definitely made them a defensively stable outfit but they will be tested to the limit against a Real Sociedad side that possess some really talented attacking players and are currently in second place in the league standings.
Monaco vs Real Sociedad team news
The French outfit head into this encounter without Benoit Badiashile, Cesc Fabregas and Eliot Matazo but other than that, they have a fully fit squad. Wissam Ben Yedder is expected to play a starring role alongside Aurelien Tchouameni.
Real Sociedad will be without experienced duo of Asier Illarrramendi and Nacho Monreal while Igor Zubeldia is also injured for this encounter. However, the likes of David Silva, Alexander Isak and Mike Oyarzabal will be looking to take the game to the French.
