Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview of the Spanish LaLiga clash on 18 June 2020, Thursday. Kick off 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET at the Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz).
Deportivo Alaves has been dropping points in the league lately and as a result, they are sliding down the table closer to the relegation batch. It will not be a favorable game for the host when Real Sociedad pays a visit from the promotion zone in the table.
Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Match preview
Alaves has been winless in their last three matches in the campaign, following a 2-0 loss on the road in their previous encounter with Espanyol in the schedule. They have won only three of their last ten clashes in the league, but two of those three wins were as the host.
The home ground is the strongest suit for Alaves in the league, and it is clear from suffering just two defeats within the recent ten attempts at home. And at home, the host has slotted in 18 of the overall 29 goals in the campaign this season.
Even though at home, the Babazorros will lack their advantages when facing a stronger side like Sociedad in the league. Real Sociedad will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home against Osasuna in their prior clash.
Txuri-urdinak is at the fourth spot in the table as it stands. They have lost in only one of the recent five fixtures in their league schedule. They have had a mixed form on the road but since their last two visits to Alaves were successful, Imanol Alguacil and his team will have hopes in the game.
Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Head-to-head (h2h)
- The guest has recorded four of the last five wins.

- The visitor has kept three clean sheets within the prior 5 matches.
- The host is winless at home in the recent two fixtures without even a goal.
Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Prediction
If we specifically check Alaves’s form at home, as a standard for finding the favorites, then the Babazorros will be a pleasant option.
However, when contrasted against Real Sociedad’s standings and overall form in the campaign, the host loses their limelight in the game.
Be it the 15 point lead over the host in the table or most wins recorded in their recent h2h encounters across major contests, Imanol Alguacil and his team are in the upfront.
The away win in full-time will still be a risky bet since the host cannot be completely written off. So, expecting a fightback from the home team leads us to the option of a draw no bet over Real Sociedad to the best bet in the clash.
Besides, the match offers a couple of goals at the least and 1.40 odds for the tip of over 1.5 goals in total justify it to yield decent returns for the punters.
