Real Valladolid vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Valladolid were on the road the last match-day, and despite persistent efforts from the squad, they could not find the back of the net even once, thus settling for a goalless draw.
Meanwhile, Sociedad raced to a dominating 4-1 win at home over Eibar, the preceding game week.
This Sunday, Sociedad hold the upper hand, due to their comparatively much higher standing in the table. They are placed fourth in standings, and have scored the fourth-most goals in the competition, after Barca, Real Madrid, and Villarreal.
The team has also recorded seven of the previous ten h2h wins, and have never failed to find the back of the net against this opponent in the preceding 16 years.
Moreover, at this venue, the last they lost was back in 2003, and they have scored twice or more at this ground in four of their previous five visits to this stadium.
Considering these stats, and the determination of Soceidad to keep hold of the fourth spot in the table, count on them to put forth a mighty performance, and avoid a defeat at the least this Sunday.
However, do take into account the performance of Valladolid at home over the course of this season. They have found the back of the net in eight of their last ten home fixtures, and did it twice or more in three of their preceding five appearances here.
Most importantly, 14 of the last 17 h2h meetings, and eight of the former nine at this ground had goals from both teams, and all these factors together help us out to pick the BTTS as a favored choice.
