Real Sociedad vs Espanyol Match Preview
Real Sociedad have beaten Real Madrid (0-2) and held on to a goalless draw at Real Betis in Copa del Rey, hosting Espanyol on Monday in hope they can build on such performances and jump the rivals on La Liga table in an attempt to catch up with the top 6.
Txuri-urdinak have struggled in front of the home crowd through December and suffered losses to both Real Valladolid (1-2) and Deportivo Alaves (0-1) in their last two outings here, which should have them just as motivated to end the unwanted streak on the day.
Espanyol have held Villarreal to a 2-2 draw in a mid-week Copa del Rey clash of their own and built on their 1-0 home win over Leganes seen beforehand, where an early goal from Borja Iglesias proved enough for all three points as they bounced back from a three-match losing streak.
Rubi’s men have struggled for consistency at the back and this could be worrying as they only dropped the advantage at Estadio de la Ceramica with a late equalizer from Carlos Bacca, which was their tenth goal conceded in last five trips. They will now want more at Anoeta but Sociedad have plans of their own.
We will now back Real Sociedad to secure all three points and prove their worth once again, jumping the rivals on the league table with a win priced at 5/4 with Unibet. We expect them very motivated to build on their mid-table spot and we don’t see it any other way.
We do see Espanyol making an impact too and with belief Sociedad will have to outgun the rivals to secure the points, we’re now also going for a Yes on Both teams to score at Evens with William Hill.
