Betting Analysis

Looking at the 1×2 market first, where the favourite for this game was Real Sociedad who gave their backers a comfortable 90 minutes and won @ 1.92. Osasuna didn’t ever threaten the goal until two behind and so the home team cruised to win.

Moving onto the Asian handicap market for this contest. Real Sociedad -0.5 rewarded backers and perhaps with hindsight, looked good value @ 1.92. this matchup is something of a local derby and game between rivals, but Osasuna never got competitive and once behind, their backers would have had zero confidence in seeing their stake returned

Looking at The Under/Over market last of all. The line was well placed at 2.25 because it could have gone either way. The contest ended up as a half-win for the punters which went for the Under @ 1.82. When the score was 2-0 there were a couple of big chances at either end which would have seen Under backers sweating in the final stages. The important note to take here was how well Sociedad defended when ahead by one goal, making Osasuna look impotent going forward.

 

Match Summary

Real Sociedad cruised to a comprehensive and deserved 2-0 win over an Osasuna side which never did themselves justice and was always chasing their opponent.

The Basque host scored a fine opening goal on 22 minutes and wrapped the contest up in the second half with another classy finish. Osasuna didn’t react until late and so Sociedad merited the points and 2-0 is a perfectly fair result.

It was a fast opening in San Sebastián, with both sides setting a high tempo but with the home side looking more settled.

Takefusa Kubo had a great game for Real Sociedad and he set up the ever busy Sørloth, but the striker inexplicably missed from six yards out in a chance that offside may have ruled out had he scored.

Brais Méndez was the man of the match for Sociedad and he got a classy opening goal. Dancing beyond a last-ditch slide tackle before slotting in off the far post midway through the half.

The visitors continued to look disjointed in attack after the interval, but they did press higher and take more risks.

Real Sociedad managed the game well and although focused on defence in the 2nd period, they launched several dangerous breaks including one which led to the second goal.

David Silva produced a defence-splitting backheel in the build-up for the strike from Sørloth, who chipped Aitor Fernández to make it 2-0.

Osasuna had one snatch at goal late on but was easily outclassed on the day. Sociedad missed a big chance for a 3rd goal but finished as impressive and comfortable winners.
