Only a handful of teams in the 2021-22 UEFA Europa League are still undefeated, and two of them will meet on Thursday. Real Sociedad (1-3-0) of Spain's La Liga will visit AS Monaco (2-2-0) of French Ligue 1. Both clubs occupy the top two spots in the Europa League Group B with only the top two advancing to the knockout phase. Real Sociedad dominated when the two played on Sept. 30, but all that mattered was the score, a 1-1 draw. You can stream the match on Paramount+ here.

UEFA Europa League picks for Monaco vs. Real Sociedad
Before tuning into Thursday's match, you need to see the Real Sociedad vs. Monaco picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season. He's also been red-hot on his Champions League picks since joining SportsLine. In fact, Green is on a blistering 86-53-5 run on his UCL best bets. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
For Monaco vs. Real Sociedad, Green is predicting a draw at +240 odds. That's exactly what happened in their September meeting, when Monaco got on the scoreboard with a goal in the 16th minute only for Real Sociedad to supply the equalizer in the 53rd minute. While the Spanish side had a 14-6 edge in total shots and had 64 percent time of possession, both clubs had three shots on goal.
Not capitalizing on its opportunities has been a problem for Real Sociedad, which usually has a talent edge over its competition. Its lack of resolve often turns what should be wins into draws as evident by its 2021-22 season. It is undefeated over its last 17 games but practically half of those have ended up in tie scores as Real Sociedad has eight draws over that span.
It has drawn three of four Europa League matches, while Monaco has two ties over its four UEL contests.
"Sociedad is the technically superior team," Green told SportsLine. "It boasts David Silva, Alexander Isak, Mikel Oyarzabal and Mikel Merino in its ranks, so it should cause problems for Monaco. Yet Monaco is quicker, more athletic and more powerful, and it should dominate Sociedad at set pieces, so these teams could ultimately cancel one another out."
