Real Valladolid faces Real Sociedad in a match from the 16th round of the Spanish La Liga
Real Valladolid faces Real Sociedad in a match from the 16th round of the Spanish La Liga. Here are our La Liga soccer predictions for the game between these two teams on Saturday.
At this moment Real Valladolid are 15th in the standings with 18 points and a record of 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 defeats. In terms of current form Valladolid’s last five games in the league look like this – one win, one draw and three losses. It could be better, no doubt about that.
Last week Sergio’s team visited Celta in Vigo and won a point after a 0-0 draw. For this game Sergio used a conservative 4-4-2 formation, while in the second half he put Waldo Rubio, Ruben Alcaraz and Pedro Porro on the pitch. We guess Valladolid were satisfied with the point, which was secured away from home.
Against Real Sociedad Real Valladolid will be without the services of the suspended Joaquin Fernandez, while Javier Sanchez and Stiven Plaza are injured.
Real Sociedad are having a wonderful season so far. Right now La Real are in the Top 4 of the league, being 4th with 26 points. It’d be interesting to see if the Basques can keep this level of performance and eventually qualify for the Champions League again. It’d be hard, but it’s not impossible.
In the previous round Real Sociedad achieved their 8th win for the season. La Real hosted Eibar at the Reale Anoeta and enjoyed a 4-1 win. The Norwegian wonderkid Martin Odegaard scored a goal and made an assist, while Robin Le Normand, Mikel Oyarzabal and Willian Jose also scored for the hosts.
In our La Liga soccer predictions we think that Real Sociedad are favourites on paper against Real Valladolid, but for them it’s going to be pretty difficult to win this one. They can, but will they? That’s another question.
