Real Sociedad vs Real Valladolid – Football Whispers' Predictions

If you want to check the best La Liga predictions, including our favourite betting tips for Real Sociedad vs Real Valladolid, we can help you out:

Real Sociedad to Win and Lead at Half Time

After five losses in a row in La Liga, Real Valladolid ended this poor streak with a win over Valencia last weekend. Still, they remain dangerously close to the relegation zone right now.

On the other hand, Real Sociedad is without a loss in the last seven matches in the league, five of which they've won. The Basque team is currently third in the standings, so we don't see how Valladolid could avoid a loss here. Our prediction is for Real Sociedad to win after leading at half time as well.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five h2h meetings between Real Sociedad and Real Valladolid have gone under 2.5 total goals and we can see that happening once again in their next duel on Sunday.

On top of this, Real Sociedad averaged 2.42 goals per game in La Liga this season, while Real Valladolid averaged 2.21 goals per game in the league so far, which bodes well for our prediction.

Real Sociedad vs Real Valladolid Preview: News, Form, and Possible Lineups

While the home team is the favourite in the game, we expect it to be interesting. So, let's check both teams out right now:

Real Sociedad

The only team that's even remotely close to Barcelona and Real Madrid in the race for the title this season is Real Sociedad. Right now, the Basque team is in third place behind the two biggest teams in Spain and they are three points behind Real and eight behind Barcelona. Meanwhile, Real Sociedad has five wins and two draws in the last seven games in La Liga, including a draw with Real Madrid.

All of this Real Sociedad achieved while struggling with injuries, which remains the case now too as Artiz Elustondo, Mohamed Ali-Cho, David Silva, Mikel Merino, Andoni Gorosabel, and Ander Guevara are all on the sidelines at the moment.

Real Sociedad Predicted Lineup:

Remiro – Elustondo, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Munoz – Mendez, Zubimendi, Illarramendi – Oyarzabal, Sorloth, Kubo

Real Valladolid

After five losses in a row in the league, Real Valladolid managed to end this bad streak by beating Valencia in the last round. While those are certainly good news for the newly-promoted team, they are still just one point ahead of the first team in the relegation zone, so they will likely have to fight for survival come the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Real Valladolid remains without injured Kenedy and Sergio Escudero, while Roque Mesa is suspended right now.

Real Valladolid Predicted Lineup:

Masip – Fresneda, Fernandez, Sanchez, Olaza – Perez, Monchu, Aguado – Plano, Leon, Machis

La Liga Standings

Player to Watch: Mikel Oyarzabal

While Mikel Oyarzabal had a rough season so far due to injuries and he only appeared in five La Liga matches for Real Sociedad this season in which he scored just once, we are going with him as our player to watch in this game.

After all, the Spanish forward is one of the best players at the club and with Real Sociedad struggling with injuries at the moment, he will have to find his way to contribute despite his own issues.
