Real Betis vs Real Sociedad
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 2 December 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).
Real Sociedad will be hoping to extend a fine two-win thread on Sunday morning when they travel to Estadio Benito Villamarin to take on Real Betis in the first game of the day in La Liga. Snatching the spoils from Sevilla will be quite a challenging task for the visitors, though, as Betis are capable of beating anyone on their day.
Los Beticos proved it with a shocking 3-4 victory over defending champions and current table-toppers Barcelona at Camp Nou before the international break. They couldn’t back it up in the previous round, though, falling 2-1 away at Villarreal. Betis will still head into this in high spirits after securing a place in the last 32 round of Europa League on Thursday night. Quique Setien’s men saw off Olympiacos 1-0 thanks to a goal from Canales.
Real Betis vs Real Sociedad: Head-to-head
Teams have 13 wins each coming into their 39th head to head encounter.
We can still remember an eight-goal thriller which ended in a 4-4 draw when the two likes last met at Anoeta in the previous term of Primera Division.
Interestingly, the reverse fixture saw a goalless draw at Benito Villamarin.
Betis were much more successful in home matches as they won 11, drew 3 and lost only 5 of 19 H2H outings in Sevilla.
Real Betis vs Real Sociedad: Prediction
Sociedad began the season in a slower fashion, but they look to have found the wanted rhythm of late. Txuri-Urdinak bagged five goals in back-to-back league wins over Levante and Celta Vigo. They climbed up to 8th in the league standings as a consequence. Mikel Oyarzabal became team’s top scorer netting his fourth goal of the campaign in a 2-1 victory over Celta Vigo on Monday.
Both teams have a strong firepower on display in the final third and backing a high-scoring contest looks to be just the way to go here. Braver tipsters can also try with the draw at the odds of 3.30.
