Valencia vs Real Sociedad Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Valencia remain in the third spot of the La Liga 2017-18 standings after a 2-1 success over Malaga during the weekend. Despite watching the opponents score through Ideye Brown in the 27th minute, Valencia produced a strong comeback in the final 10 minutes. Francis Coquelin’s 80th minute goal provided belief and the comeback was completed with Dani Parejo’s 85th minute penalty. Miquel received a red card in the events leading up to the penalty. Real Sociedad lost 4-3 on aggregate against Red Bull Salzburg in the Europa League action, but the team picked up a 3-0 win over Levante during the weekend. Xabi Prieto’s early penalty settled the nerves for the home team, while goals from Juanmi and Sergio Canales laid the foundation for a big win.

Betting Tips and Predictions

After a string of four consecutive losses against Real Sociedad, the reverse fixture finally brought about a change with Valencia claiming a win at the Anoeta earlier in the campaign. Now, Valencia are in a good position to build on this result after back-to-back league victories. Real Sociedad have lost four on the trot, while the club were also involved in Europa League action in the midweek. I would back a win for Valencia. The last three games between these two teams have finished with a 3-2 score. Even after recovering with two consecutive wins, Marcelino will be concerned about his team’s lack of clean sheet in the last 10 games. Real Sociedad have a decent attacking line-up with at least a goal in the last eight across all competitions. I would back both teams to score in this game.

Valencia win – 4/6

Valencia Preview

Valencia are back to winning ways, as the team have now managed back-to-back wins in the La Liga. The revival in form comes at a crucial time for Valencia, as Real Madrid have also found form in the last couple of matches. Valencia have now slipped of the top three places, but they still remain within touching distance of the automatic Champions League qualification spots. Marcelino’s team have now played the same number of matches as Real Madrid. After the exit from the Copa del Rey, Valencia can fully focus on the La Liga matches from now until the end of the campaign. Simone Zaza leads the scoring charts, but he has been stuck on 10 goals for the last few weeks.

Valencia Team News

Andreas Pereira (thigh) and Ezequiel Garay (leg) are the two injury concerns for manager Marcelino.

Real Sociedad Preview

Real Sociedad have climbed up and above the relegation zone in recent weeks, as the wins over Deportivo La Coruna and Levante have provided the club with a comfortable cushion over the bottom three. An 11-point advantage over the relegation places should not induce complacency into the team, as the situation could quickly turn around in a couple of weeks. Real Sociedad have scored the most number of goals (46) amongst teams outside the top four. Willian Jose is the top scorer at the club with 11 league goals.

Real Sociedad Team News

Manager Eusebio will be without Hector Moreno (hip), Xabi Prieto (groin), Carlos Martinez (shoulder), Willian Jose (foot), and Geronimo Rulli (thigh) due to injuries.
