Villarreal vs Sociedad
This looks a good situation for Villareal to start the season the right way. The club incorporated Carlos Bacca in the last hours, and apart from that, the team seems ready to try and show some good football. They also bought Gerard Moreno, a more than decent scorer last season in Espanyol. Overall, Villarreal look the more likely winners here. They’ve tended to enjoy life at home to Sociedad in recent seasons and have invested pretty heavily this summer by their standards so they do have a strong squad.
Sociedad meanwhile you sense may take some time to adapt to life under a far more cautiously minded coach than they had last term. They are also dealing with some notable departures with the likes of Sergio Canales and Álvaro Odriozola having left the club this summer. They lost 5 of last 6 games in pre-season, and they look worse than last year.
Villareal looks far more solid, as long as we can know in these first weeks of competition. Last season they won this game 4-2, but this time we don't see so many goals. We expect a close win to nil.
