Real Sociedad vs Valencia Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

Real Sociedad endured a second consecutive league defeat, as they lost 3-0 against newly promoted Levante. Chema came up with the first goal of the game just before half-time and it set the tone in the second half. Levante able to take advantage of the gaps created by Real Sociedad in the search for an equaliser. Goals from José Morales and Enis Bardhi helped Levante on to an impressive win. Valencia were able to get a first win in four matches by beating Malaga 5-0 at the Mestalla. Santi Mina’s opening goal was built upon by a hat-trick from Simone Zaza, while Rodrigo came in with a late goal to inflict more misery on the away team. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The recent matches between these two clubs have been dominated by Real Sociedad, who have completed the double over Valencia in the last two seasons. Yet, this game may see Valencia getting something out of the game. They team last managed to take points at the Anoeta back in 2014, but Valencia come into this match yet to be beaten the season. I would go with this game ending up as a draw. Willian Jose has been in outstanding scoring form against Valencia after netting three goals in his last two appearances against this team. While he has failed to score in his last two appearances, he remains a huge threat for the home team. He had just one shot on target against Levante, but he has scored three goals in four games against Valencia. I would back Willian Jose to score anytime.

Draw – 12/5

Real Sociedad Preview

A spectacular start to the season has come to a crashing end for Real Sociedad, as the club has suffered a 6-1 aggregate defeat in the last two league outings. Manager Eusebio will be more worried about the recent loss against Levante than the home defeat against Real Madrid. As a result of these back-to-back defeats, Real Sociedad have slipped from being close to the top of the table into the seventh position. A strong element from Real Sociedad at the start of the season was their goals, but the club has found the back of the net only once in the last two games.

Real Sociedad Team News

Diego Llorente is unavailable for the game due to suspension. Raul Rodriguez (back), Inigo Martinez (knee), Carlos Martinez (cruciate ligament), and Mikel Oyarzabal (shin) are the players missing due to injuries.

Valencia Preview

Valencia were able to put an end to a run of three consecutive draws with a mammoth win over Malaga. This victory was able to provide plenty of positives for the club like a hat-trick from Simone Zaza and a clean sheet. The lack of European football means that Valencia can continue to focus on the La Liga and hopefully qualify for the European spots next season. The club were able to finish closer to the top 10 last season, but it was largely on the back of a strong end to the 2016-17 campaign.

Valencia Team News

Ruben Vezo (toe) is the only player unavailable for Valencia manager Marcelino.
