Struggling Deportivo host in form Real Sociedad at the De Riazor stadium in La Coruna. The hosts had failed to record a victory in their last 7 competitive games, which include 3 consecutive defeat in their last 3 competitive games.

Moreover, this strings of bad performances placed the Turks in 17th position 1 point above the relegation waters.
Real Sociedad is going into this game on the back of 6 games unbeaten run. The royals have only dropped point once in their last 5 league games, but lost 3 of their first 6 away league games. However, Real Sociedad recent run have placed them in a decent position in the log with 23 points gathered from 13 games.

Real Sociedad are coming into this game on the back of some strong results in recent La Liga fixtures. The Royals’ disciplined defense has conceded only twice in the last 5 games, while they can rely on their attack which has netted 10 goals in those games. This shows that they are far better side compared to a Deportivo on poor form and it is very likely that Sociedad will grab another win on Monday.
Therefore, I will predict at least a 1 goal margin victory for Real Sociedad in their Monday visit to De Riazor.
