Las Palmas vs Real Sociedad
Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday, 24th February 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio de Gran Canaria.
The Monday’s loss to Malaga was the 3rd on the trot for Las Palmas who dropped down to 12th position after a promising start to the season in Primera Division.
The visitors won’t come in the game in better spirits either after the home defeat to Villarreal, but they still have hopes of challenging the Champions League spots which are currently only four points away.
The team from Canarian Islands was one of the most pleasant surprises of the first part of the season. However, Quique Setien’s side has seen a significant drop in from, especially in the attack which has been the stronger part of the team earlier.
The Canaries found a single goal in last three league encounters, but they will have a chance to improve the record against Real Sociedad who conceded at least a goal in each of their last five league outings.
The visitors were on pace taking back-to-back wins over Osasuna and Espanyol. However, the last round has seen Eusebio sacristian’s men suffering a home defeat to Villarreal which has been a serious blow to their ambitions of catching the 4th position.
Las Palmas vs Real Sociedad: Head to head
The teams have five wins each as six head to head encounters ended in draws. The Basques can surely still remember the magnificent performance they delivered at Anoeta in mid-September last year.
Willian Jose bagged a brace, while Carlos Vela and Zurutuza added a goal each in a commanding 4-1 victory for Real Sociedad.
Las Palmas vs Real Sociedad: Prediction
We would normally go for the Over bets here, but the attacking form las Palmas showed in the recent days does not suggest such a scenario.
It is really hard to separate the two sides at the moment which is why we see the draw as a likeable scenario.
Las Palmas vs Real Sociedad: Bet Tips
- The draw is priced up at 23/10.
- Braver punters can chase the 10/1 longshot backing the goalless draw.
