Amongst the plethora of matches in the 5th round of the Europa League group stage, there is a lot of interest in the upcoming game in Monaco. In Group B, the Monaco and Real Sociedad teams will meet at the Louis II Arena on Thursday, 25 November. The match will start at 23:00 Moscow time.
The upcoming game could decide the first winner of the play-off round. The Spaniards and Monegasque sides have equal chances of winning this game. The stakes are too high, so it’s going to be an interesting matchup. To us, it is a matter of principle to predict the match between Monaco and Real Sociedad. Hopefully, we can predict the outcome more or less accurately.
Niko Kovac’s team has probably decided to focus on playing well in the Europa League this season. While the Monegasques are not exactly shining in the French Ligue 1 championship, they have been quite successful in the Europa League group stage. In advance of the game with Sociedad, Niko Kovac’s side has 8 points and the first position in Group B.
In contrast to its opponent in the upcoming match, Imanol Alguacil’s side has been quite successful at home. In contrast to their opponents, this season, Sociedad has been in the lead for a long time in the Spanish La Liga championship, and it was only after a 0-0 draw against Valencia in the 14th round that they lost the leadership position to their Madrid clubmates. In the Europa League, Sociedad is still in second place in Group B. They are 6 points ahead of Monaco and have a good chance of getting out of the group.
The Monaco and Real Sociedad teams have met twice in official tournaments. One game ended in a draw, while the other was won by the Spanish team.
The upcoming game could have any outcome, including a draw. Only one thing is most likely: goals will be scored by both sides. This is our prediction for the Monaco v Real Sociedad match.
Probable result – Both teams will score.
