Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

The Red Bull Arena will be the venue as Real Sociedad travel to Germany for the first leg of their Europa League Round of 16 encounter with RB Leipzig. The game kicks off on the 18th of February by 23:15 IST and is the first-ever meeting between the two sides.

RB Leipzig will hope to respond strongly to their Champions League group stage exit. The German side fell short of requirements and will have to face Real Sociedad, who were fortunate to finish in second place in Group B of the Europa League.

Teams Status

Neither side has met in European competition, so there is no head-to-head record. Here are our tips for this fixture:

Tip: RB Leipzig To Win (Draw No Bet) @ 1.36

RB Leipzig are the team in better form at the moment, with forwards Nkunku and Andre Silva scoring goals remarkably in recent weeks. The Europa League holds a promise of glory for the German side, and they will hope to win this encounter and gain a stronghold in the tie. RB Leipzig to win (draw no bet) is available on the Sportbet.io sportsbook at 1.36 odds.

Tip: Real Sociedad To Score @ 1.36

Real Sociedad may not have hit their ‘beginning of the season’ heights recently, but they have an interesting record of scoring in every European match they have played this season. They will be on the hunt for that all-important away goal at Porto, so we expect them to score one goal, at least. Real Sociedad to score is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.36 odds.


The game between FC Porto and Real Sociedad may not be as star-studded as others, but both teams have enough quality to keep the tie in a delicate balance overall. Porto is the home team and is under pressure to win in front of their fans. Sociedad will be hoping to get a good result away from home, and the stakes are high for both teams going into this encounter.
