It was the third consecutive victory for Real Sociedad who drastically improved their defensive displays compared to the period under Eusebio Sacristian. The visitors are now on the brink of the top half of the league ladder and they’ll have a nice chance to break into it right after this weekend with the trip to La Rosaleda for the clash with the rock-bottomed Malaga upcoming.

The Anchovies lost all hopes of saving the top flight status and they can start preparing for the Segunda Division football. Four points from matches against Celta Vigo and Villarreal count for little as they were followed by three consecutive losses leaving Jose Gonzalez and his men 17 points below the safe zone line.

Malaga vs Real Sociedad: Head-to-head

Real Sociedad lead the head to head tie by six wins coming into 34th encounter with Malaga.

Nonetheless, the Anchovies managed to stun the Basques clinching one of rare away wins in this term of La Liga, back in December last year (0-2).

Both teams scored in four of last six head to head games between these rivals.

Malaga vs Real Sociedad: Prediction

We doubt the BTTS trend will be continued here given Sociedad’s rock-solid defensive line in the last month. The Basques made it four straight games without conceding a goal in Primera and we just have to underline a massive job Imanol Alguacil did in turning a corner on that field.

Malaga were absolutely no dangerous in the final third in Thursday’s clash with fellow strugglers Levante and we can hardly see them ending the impressive run of the Basques’ here. The main bet is thus Real Sociedad to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.25.

Obviously, Sociedad will come into the game in much higher spirits and we have to back them to grab the spoils at the odds of 1.75 here.
