Real Betis vs Real Sociedad Match Preview

Real Sociedad will put their impressive away form to the test again, just four days after their most eye-catching result of the season.

The Basque club’s results have been distinctly lop-sided this term, in the sense that Celta Vigo are the only team they have beaten at home whereas they have registered five La Liga victories on the road.

Those away successes hit new heights last Sunday when Sociedad, who have just re-appointed Imanol Alguacil as manager following a caretaker spell at the end of last season, triumphed 2-0 at Real Madrid with goals from Willian Jose (penalty) and Ruben Pardo.

Yet they are still five positions and four points behind Real Betis in the table and although Sociedad’s odds for this Copa del Rey match were slashed following their win in the Bernabeu, we fancy a home win here.

Betis lost on their trip to bottom club Huesca last weekend, but their home form has generally been very strong this season and they recorded four consecutive victories to nil before being held 1-1 by Eibar last time out.

A 3-1 success away to an Espanyol side that had been going well also showed what the Verdiblancos are capable of and with the bookmakers perhaps having over-reacted to Sociedad’s win against the European champions, we are backing Quique Setien’s side to claim an advantage to take north for the return leg.
