Real Sociedad vs Alaves Prediction
Real Sociedad enjoys the ground advantage in the game and has been unbeaten in their last three home matches in the campaign. In the meantime, Alaves is in poor form on the road as seen in their three-game winless streak away from home in La Liga as of late this season.
La Real had to return home with just a point in the goalless draw of the reverse fixture against the visitors earlier this season. The home team is winless in their last two league clashes against the guest and have failed to score in both. But playing at home will be the strongest suit for the host.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter. Besides, there is a good chance to see a couple of goals in this reverse fixture. Hence, the tip for over 1.5 goals will come in handy for the goals area in the clash.
