La Liga is up with a good number of interesting games for your bets this weekend and one of them is the Real Sociedad vs Valencia one. Looking at the odds from several bookmakers you will notice that there is no obvious winner, in fact, some of them give the same odds to both teams despite the places they have on the table.
Real Sociedad produced one of this year’s greatest upsets as they managed to win with 4-2 against a Real Madrid that just did not see that blow coming. The downside to the win was the fact that Sociedad kind of crashed after that, and summed up two consecutive defeats that sent them on the 13th place on the Primera Division table. The most recent result, a 1-0 loss against Sevilla set their goal difference to -1, and send them to the match against Valencia with hopes of continuing their good streak of winning matches against them, that continues since 2011.
Upon returning to training, Sociedad had almost all players on the field, including Carlos Vela. Geronimo Rulli is undergoing personalized training session after his recent surgery and Carlos Martinez missed practice due to abdomen pains. Valencia do not have injury scares and Alvaro Negredo is the only one still missing from the squad.
Valencia won against Cordoba with 3-0 with Otamendi and Mustafi in great form that kept the defense line in check. Feghouli is that one player Sociedad needs to be afraid of, as his partnership with Andre Gomez is what brings the goals for the visitors. Piatti is much faster that Sociedad’s midfield, and if they let him pass, their already frail defense will concede again.
Bet365 gives both teams 2.62 for an outright win, as well as for either team winning both halves, the odds are 4.00. Both teams to score is at 1.61, Paco Alcacer as an anytime goalscorer is at 3.00, same odds as Rodrigo Moreno. Over 1.5 goals in the first half goes for 2.62 and we’re betting 8 units on both teams to score in the second half at 3.00 with Bet365.
