Our prediction for this Europa League match:
After sharing the spoils with AZ Alkmaar in their last group game, Real Sociedad will be looking to retain their spot in top two when they host Rijeka at Reale Seguros Stadium. The La Liga side have been impressive at the back in the Europa League this season, with the team conceding only one goal in the process. Even though key midfielder David Silva is likely to miss the Rijeka game with injury, home win should be considered.
The Croatian outfit do not seem to be competitive at this level, with the team suffering a loss in each of their four group games. Real Sociedad are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from Thursday’s football match. When the two teams met at Stadion HNK Rijeka earlier in the process Real Sociedad defeated Rijeka 1-0.
