Real Valladolid vs Real Sociedad
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla.
Real Valladolid have finally ended their losing streak with an upset at Eibar ahead of the International break and now host Sociedad for their Matchday 29 clash hoping to build on the success, further distancing themselves from the immediate danger zone in La Liga.
Pucela have been scoring goals but still struggled to capitalize on them, seeing Barcelona, Betis, Espanyol, and Real Madrid all snatch points in exciting clashes along the way. Sergio will now need more to have his men climb the table and they’ll surely hope the visitors’ respective woes at the back will be overwhelming at Jose Zorrilla.
Real Sociedad have earned just two points in their last four outings and sit seven points clear of the struggling rivals, after seeing quite comfortable losses to Atletico Madrid and Sevilla but holding off Girona and Levante along the way. They will now hope to put an end to defensive errors but doing so in Valladolid could as well prove a tough task – seeing Txuri-Urdinak’s struggles to turn away clashes their way.
Real Valladolid vs Real Sociedad: Head-to-head
Valladolid snatched a 1-2 win at Anoeta earlier this term, which was the sides’ first clash in almost two years.
Sociedad snatched a 1-3 win at this ground in December 2016, which was enough for Copa del Rey success over the rivals.
