Real Sociedad Prediction

Real Sociedad saved their best until their last match in the Spanish top flight when they ended a miserable four-match losing streak with a fantastic 2-0 win away against an out-of-sorts Real Madrid outfit, and they’ll head into this encounter with a timely confidence boost.

The hosts sit in 12th place and had previously suffered defeats to Real Betis, Real Valladolid, Getafe and Deportivo Alaves until they ended this losing run with the aforementioned emphatic win in Madrid.

Real Sociedad still have work to do at home though as their record stands at a disappointing 1-3-4 6/9 and have lost their last two home matches on the trot. There is hope though with forwards Oyarzabal (5 goals) and Jose (4 goals) up front, along with the fact that Real Sociedad are unbeaten in their last two meetings at home against Espanyol.

Key-Facts – Real Sociedad v Espanyol

    • Real Sociedad beat Real Madrid 2-0 away in their last match
    • Real Sociedad are unbeaten in their last two meetings at home against Espanyol
    • Espanyol have lost their last three away matches on the trot

Espanyol Prediction

Espanyol also ended a worrying losing streak last time out in La Liga when they recorded a much needed 1-0 home win over Leganes, so they’ll head into Monday night’s encounter with Real Sociedad in a better frame of mind I daresay.

However, although Espanyol have registered seven league wins to date in this season’s Spanish top flight, six of them have been achieved at their RCDE Stadium where they’ve won 6 of their 9 home matches so far this term.

This of course means that their results away from home have been poor by comparison and an away record of 1-3-5 8/13 confirms the troubles they’ve had in picking up points on a regular basis on their travels.

Espanyol are without an away win from their last four matches and have lost their last three on the trot on the road at Sevilla, Getafe and Atletico Madrid.

Betting Tips Verdict

Real Sociedad won’t have a better chance to build upon their recent win at Real Madrid while Espanyol’s problems away from home seem set to continue.
