Real Sociedad vs Valencia
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 29 September 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Anoeta (Donostia-San Sebastian).
Real Sociedad have earned four of their eight points in the last two outings, as they narrowly beat Huesca on the road and held Rayo Vallecano to a 2-2 draw in front of the home crowd, continuing their busy schedule as they host Valencia for their Matchday 7 clash on Saturday.
Valencia have largely struggled to impress in the attacking third after the international break and they have a busy schedule to try to lift their spirits, after failing to find the net in goalless draws against Real Betis and Villarreal as well as a 0-2 loss to Juventus in Champions League.
Marcelino’s men travel to Donostia-San Sebastian just days after the Wednesday’s clash against Celta de Vigo, looking to finally end the unwanted streak and start climbing the table. We do feel they are in for another strong challenge and Los Che could have to outgun the rivals if they’re to build on their two-game winning streak in head-to-head matchups!
Real Sociedad vs Valencia: Head-to-head
- Valencia have bagged wins in both of the sides’ two thrilling head-to-head clashes last term.
- This has only ended a four-game winning streak for Real Sociedad back then, as Txuri-urdinak last beat the rivals in April 2017.
- We’ve seen three or more goals on all of the last four occasions between the sides.
Real Sociedad vs Valencia: Prediction
We will now back Valencia to finally impress and bag their third win in a row over Real Sociedad, sticking our necks out for an Away win at 3.30. They have a lot to prove but we do feel it’s only a question of time Marcelino finds a cure for their woes in the attacking third, going for it to be at Estádio Municipal de Anoeta.
We do believe we’re in for another thriller, though, and it will be no easy task. Sociedad have a solid goal scoring streak behind them and Valencia will have to score an extra goal, as we also go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.85 – which seems a great approach for those hoping to see a winner on the day.
