Valladolid vs Real Sociedad
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 13 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Jose Zorrilla (Valladolid).
Valladolid was the 13th placed team in the last season La Liga and they had only 9 wins from that entire season with 38 appearances. The host ended the season in a positive note the last term, with a 2-0 win at home against Real Betis. Even with their ground advantage, the Pucela doesn’t pose a big threat for the traveling side.
Real Sociedad mixed form in the campaign pushed them into the sixth spot in the table with 56 points picked up from their 38 matches overall. They were unbeaten in the last three clashes and will visit after a 1-1 draw on the road against Atletico Madrid last time out in the schedule. La Real was not that bad in their outings by which they hold a strong case for a win at Valladolid.
- Three of their recent five clashes have ended in a draw.
- The visitor has recorded four of the last five overall wins.
- Their previous encounter gave a 1-0 home win for La Real.
- Both teams have scored in four of the last six matches.
- The host is winless at home for the past six fixtures.
Valladolid vs Real Sociedad Prediction
The teams have had a hard time finding a clear winner out of the two whenever they meet. Three of their recent five overall h2h clashes have ended in a draw. Along with that, five of the last six h2h fixtures at this venue have also ended with the teams sharing the spoils.
Since it has been a regular incident of late, we cannot avoid the chance of yet another draw. Besides, the visitor has exhibited a slightly better performance last season, which forces us to back the away team in taking the points from the encounter.
Hence, the safest bet for the punters will be a double chance favoring Real Sociedad. With their strong form on the road and the dominance over the host in the h2h meetings, La Real is much closer to taking something out of the fixture at Valladolid.
A tight game as such with both teams having decent scoring averages lately is sure to be met with at least a couple of goals in ninety minutes. So, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be another suitable option for the punters.
Double chance: Draw or Real Sociedad @ 1.40 (2/5).
Over 1.5 goals in full-time @ 1.40 (2/5).
