Date: Tuesday, 29 September 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Reale Seguros Stadium (San Sebastian).
Real Sociedad are heavy favorites to win against Valencia in the La Liga clash on Tuesday.
It took them three games to register the first win of the season, the 3-0 away win at Eibar on Saturday is an indication of what to expect them this season.
The team managed by Imanol Alguacil drew blank with Real Madrid and were held to a 1-1 stalemate by Valladolid in the previous two games.
Tuesday mark Real Sociedad’s first home game of the 20/21 season and they are clear favorites to win considering how poor Valencia have been on the road in calendar year 2020.
The Los Che lost most of their key players in the summer, lost 9 and drew 2 of their 11 La Liga games played in 2020.
They are coming to this match on the back of a 2 match win-less run after starting the new season on a 4-2 home win vs Huesca.
Valencia lost 1-2 away at Celta Vigo on matchday 2 and were held to a 1-1 draw at the Mestalla on Saturday by newly promoted Huesca.
