Real Sociedad vs Real Betis
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 20 October 2019
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Reale Seguros Stadium (San Sebastian).
Sociedad is starting to tremble. Their impressive winning streak was put to a halt by back-to-back losses, and suddenly their place in the top-tier is not looking anymore infallible. The team needs this win, and they will have to put to use the home advantage in a great manner. It does help that the incoming contingent is a struggling one, and especially so on the road.

Real Sociedad vs Real Betis Prediction
Joan Sicilia’s men were destroyed on the road the last day by Villarreal. Take note that the major damage was done in the second half. The first 45 minutes went comparatively without any incident, but the latter half presented an entirely different story. Five of the total six goals in the game came after the break.
Betis will really need to figure out a way to deal with their failings in the death-stages of a game if they have any realistic objective of not turning this season into a disaster.
Their opponents are desperate for a win. Alguacil’s men were looking strong and were on a three-game winning run, that included a victory against the mighty Atletico Madrid. But some tough fixtures have had them at present suffering on two losses in a row, and they cannot permit another episode to be added to that.
The home advantage will surely act as a buoyant force for the Whites and Blues. Disregarding a loss against Getafe, the squad has maintained a 100% win record in front of their home crowd. On the other hand, the Heliopolitans are winless on the road, and in fact, possess a 100% losing record if not for a single draw against Osasuna.
Moreover, at this venue, the hosts have been spectacularly dominant in h2h meetings, and this further improves the chances for a home win this weekend. By the looks of things, the logical choice for the day is to back Sociedad to come out on top.
