Real Sociedad have lost only 1 of their last 10 matches. Valencia won 3 of their last 6 head-to-head matches. No more than two goals have been scored in 3 of the last 4 matches. The last personal match ended in victory for Real Sociedad (3:0).
In the summer, Diego Llorente left the team and was sold for 20 million to Leeds. Manchester City midfielder David Silva arrived from England as a free agent.
The start of the new championship for the Basques can be called successful. They got two draws at the start with Valladolid (1:1) and Real Madrid (0:0). Last Saturday, the "blue-white" easily beat "Elche" (3:0) on the road.
Today Ilyaramendi, Sangalhi, Sola, Guridi and Subeldia will not be able to play. Entering the field of Saldua is in question.
However, now Valencia has the opportunity to pay maximum attention to the home championship and the King's Cup. In the summer, Ferran Torres left the team, who moved to Manchester City for 23 million euros, Rodrigo moved to Leeds (30 million) and Francis Coquelin moved to Villarreal for 6.5 million.
Javi Garcia's charges began the new season with a victory over Levante (4:2), but lost to Celta in the second round (1:2). Last Saturday the Orange lost points with Huesca (0:0), for which we made a forecast.
In the infirmary of the team are Mangal, Paulista and Soler.
The top ten contenders will enter the field, which will bring the maximum intensity of passions, traditional for the opponents' fights, but it is unlikely that we will have a lot of chances to score. Most likely the outcome of the meeting will be decided by one or two goals. In our opinion, hosts still look more preferable, but nevertheless we propose to play a combined bet on this duel.
Our prediction is that Real Sociedad will not lose + the total is less than 2.5 goals and we bet on this on the line of BC 1xBe with odds 1.94
