Real Sociedad vs Alaves
Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday, 21 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Anoeta (San Sebastian).
Real Sociedad are not pulling up any trees in Spanish La Liga this term under Asier Garitano. The hosts lost three on the spin in the league to slide down to the 15th place in the standings. They will be desperate to bring a dreadful thread to an end in their last fixture of the year on Friday night when struggling Alaves come to visit Estadio Municipal de Anoeta.
Txuri-Urdinak failed to perform in the final third entirely of late. They notched only one goal in past three league affairs. The latest of failures came six days ago when the Basques fell 1-0 away at Getafe. The third-minute goal from Jorge Molina made all the difference between the two sides on the occasion.
Real Sociedad vs Alaves: Head-to-head
Sociedad also have a negative head to head record in matches against Babazorros.
The visitors lead the H2H tie by two wins coming into 23rd encounter with the Basques.
Sociedad, however, earned a domestic double over Alaves in the previous term of La Liga (2-1 and 2-1).
Both teams scored just once in past four H2H games in the league.
Real Sociedad vs Alaves: Prediction
Alaves were one of the most pleasant surprises of the first part of the season in Primera Division. They were even title challengers at one point, but a series of poor results saw them drop out of top five in the league ladder.
Babazorros won just one of past eight matches across competitions and they head into this winless in past five. Abelardo’s men were struggling badly to deliver in the final third of late. They failed to score a single goal in last two league affairs against Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao and they only found the back of the net once in past four league outings.
Both teams struggled for goals recently which is why we will go for the Under 2.5 goals FT bet as the main option at the odds of 1.66.
