Real Sociedad Preview – Can Sociedad deliver?

Few would have predicted Real Sociedad to be sat at the top of La Liga going into the recent November international break.

But they did, with a one-point lead over Real Madrid in La Liga.

Three points out of this home fixture on the weekend would be absolutely huge for them.

Real Sociedad are W4 D2 this season on home turf and they are a quote of 8/11 for the win* (odds recorded 1911 GMT on November 18th 2021).

The only loss that Real Sociedad have suffered this season came on the opening weekend of the campaign, away at Barcelona.

So that’s 12 matches undefeated since by them and they have been defensively superb at home.

In their six home matches played in the top flight this season, Real Sociedad have conceded just one goal in total.

Granted they haven’t been prolific in front of goal themselves, but that defence could keep Valencia at arm’s length.

Our betting prediction:
Sociedad to win to nil

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 1911 GMT on November 18th 2021)


Real Sociedad have tallied only 5 goals in 6 home fixtures in La Liga this season.

But again, this is all about their defence.

Real Sociedad to win to nil is at 15/8* (odds recorded 1911 GMT on November 18th 2021).

Under 2.5 goals have occurred in each of Real Sociedad’s home games this season.

The Basque side have won only one of their last four home games against Valencia (L3).

But with their opponents struggling for away wins, this is a good opportunity for Sociedad to turn the tables on them.


Valencia Preview – Visitors to come up short?

Valencia have taken a W4 D5 L4 record this season in their La Liga campaign, which puts them in mid-table.

However, after a very bright start to the season, they have been struggling recently.

Valencia have won only one of their last nine league matches, home and away combined.

The lone success for them in that sequence happened on home turf.

Out on the road, Valencia have taken one point from their last four games.

In the match outright, the win for Valencia si at a quote of 4/1* (odds recorded 1911 GMT on November 18th 2021).

So they are sizable underdogs, having lost half of their six away games in this campaign.

All three of those defeats were at teams currently above them in the table.

Valencia conceded at least three goals in each of those losses as well.

Valencia in total are averaging two goals against them per away game this season, with only one away clean sheet record.

They have scored in all but one away game, which is a positive.

But looking back at the bigger picture of a lack of away form, this isn’t just something from this current season.

Valencia have won only one of their last 16 La Liga away matches.

They don’t at the moment, look anywhere near as big of a threat as Real Sociedad.


Real Sociedad vs Valencia Betting Advice

Valencia have been led down badly by their defence away from home this season. So that immediately sends preference to Real Sociedad for the win.

With Valencia failing to win 15 of their last 16 away matches, it’s hard to find a lot of support for them.
