Real Betis vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Disappointingly, Real Betis have transitioned from being on a three-match winning streak to a three-match winless run in the La Liga. The hosts were held to a 1-1 draw by Alaves in their last clash on the road, while at home Atletico Madrid took them down with a 2-1 scorecard.
At the moment, the home team are placed thirteen in a cluster of twenty, seven points adrift of their counterparts for the weekend.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad admitted defeat for the first time in five games after Villarreal got the better of them with a 2-1 scoreline in their previous matchup. Despite taking an initial lead through Willian Jose in the first half, the visitors failed to keep the momentum going, post the restart, and ultimately succumbed to goals from Manuel Trigueros and Santi Cazorla.
Be that as it may, it needs saying that Real Sociedad are one among the best away sides in the La Liga, as far as statistics go. Impressively, they have stumbled just twice in their past eight outings.
Furthermore, Real Betis are yet to record a win at home against a side from the top five this season. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup also went in favor of Real Sociedad, the hosts have little or no chance of securing all three points in this one.
However, two of their past three meetings with each other here have witnessed both teams share the spoils. As such, back a double chance, just to be on the safer side.
Additionally, there have been no dearth of goals at this venue, as of late. All of the past five fixtures here have featured over 2.5 goals on the charts.
Meanwhile, Real Sociedad have not been shy in getting their names on the scoresheet as well. They have found the back of the net fifteen times from their past ten outings alone.
With both teams evidently keen on racking up the goals scoring charts, count on over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards, by all means, this weekend.
