Real Sociedad vs Alaves Prediction & Match Preview

Real Sociedad vs Deportivo Alaves
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Thursday, 26 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Reale Seguros Stadium (San Sebastian).

Real Sociedad have got off to a solid start in the league and are currently one among the top four with ten points in the bag. The hosts are also sporting a very impressive two-match winning streak which has seen them come out on top against Espanyol on the road and Atletico Madrid at home.

Deportivo Alaves have not been able to hit the ground running since their opening day victory and are winless in their last four games in a row, garnering no more than five points from their clashes so far.

The visitors will also be making the visit to San Sebastian this week on the back of a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Athletic Bilbao. Considering the run of form that Sociedad are on, Deportivo Alaves’s have little or no chance at all of salvaging even a point from this one.

Real Sociedad vs Deportivo Alaves Prediction

The home team pulled off a stunning victory against Diego Simeone’s men in their last clash here, that too with two unanswered goals to their name. It is also safe to say that the squad have been a much more confident bunch in the comforts of their home, considering that they have lost just twice on home soil since the start of this year.

Their counterparts for the week are yet to taste success on the road and have managed no more than a win and a draw from their last two outings. Although they did get the better of Real Sociedad in their last visit to this stadium, it is certainly worth mentioning that it is their only win in their previous seven trips here.

Furthermore, the visitors have also gone on to admit defeat in five of those clashes. Hence, Real Sociedad are the outright favorites to walk away with the spoils on Thursday.

Imanol Alguacil’s men have found the back of the net seven times in the new campaign, five of which came in the latter forty-five minutes of the game. Considering that both of the goals that they have scored so far at home have also come post the restart, by all means, count on Real Sociedad to breach their foes in the second half.
