The hosts head into the match as form favourites. They are unbeaten in last four games in all competitions. They eased past Segunda Division side Cordoba 7-2 on aggregate in the last 32 round of Copa del Rey. This is thanks to a 5-1 victory in the reverse fixture in front of the home crowd.

Getafe vs Real Sociedad: Prediction
Getafe earned a 1-1 draw away at Leganes last weekend even though they were the inferior side on the pitch throughout most of the game. However, we must say they won two in a row on the home patch netting eight goals combined against Espanyol and Cordoba.
Sociedad, on the other side, lost two on the trot in La Liga. They disappointed heavily last weekend by falling 1-2 at home to Real Valladolid. We have to mention Mikel Oyarzabal, though, as he was on the scoreline once again, He found the back of the net in four of past five appearances for the Basques.
The visitors tend to both score and concede loads which is why we will go for goals instead of chasing the outcome bet between two evenly-matches outfits here.
