Real Sociedad vs Espanyol – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Espanyol have lost three of their last four fixtures in La Liga ahead of their trip to San Sebastian to play Real Sociedad on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Real Sociedad to Win

Espanyol are on the slide and a run of three defeats in four games has sent them packing down to 15th place in La Liga. Real Sociedad’s domestic results have been uninspiring so far, though two Europa League wins on the bounce should put them on firmer footing and they should have too much class for their struggling visitors on Sunday. La Real have won six of their last seven meetings with Espanyol and another triumph is on the cards here.

Under 2.5 Goals

Real Sociedad have had little luck in the attacking department this season and having lost Alexander Isak to Newcastle, they lost his replacement Umar Saiq to a long-term injury this week. La Real have notched one or fewer goals in six of their seven competitive fixtures this term, though they have shipped very few efforts at the opposite end. That last two encounters between Real and Espanyol produced just a single goal and based on the evidence available, a similar outcome looks possible on Sunday.
