Alaves vs Real Sociedad Prediction & Match Preview

Alaves vs Real Sociedad
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 4th May 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz).

Don’t let the fact that both these teams lie just below the European spots in the top tier, lull you into the belief that they are in good form.

The sides are going through one of the worst phases of their season, and it really could not have come at a worse time. Their earlier performances in the season led fans to believe that these two might make it to Europe.

But as of now, they are out of the playoff list and need to overcome a sizeable number of points against teams in better form, that too with just three match-days remaining. While we can expect a tough and fierce contest, it really might not amount to anything.

Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Prediction

Both teams have been consistently leaking goals, and coincidentally, it’s been ten match-days for both squads since the last clean sheet. Moreover, two of the last four h2h ties and six of the last ten had goals from either side. Also, since both teams stand a chance of making it to the playoffs, we can expect a raring contest, and with nothing to lose, the players will give everything they have, on the pitch. Expect goals from both teams.

With the home status, Alaves does have the upper hand. Also, they are closer to the European spots, having to overcome a deficit of just three points from the last nine available, whereas Sociedad needs to make up six. In addition, eight of the last twelve h2h wins, and 10 of the last 13 at this venue went to Alaves. Expect them to avoid a loss at any cost.
