      Espanyol vs Real Sociedad Predictions


      Both teams will be a bit disappointed with how their seasons have gone so far and both find themselves in the bottom half coming into this game. Real Sociedad are 2 points better off than Espanyol but you sense both sides will be looking nervously over their shoulders rather than upwards and the losers here will really feel the heat of the sides below them, some of whom are gathering momentum.

      It has been a desperate start to 2016 from Espanyol and they are winless in 8 games in all competitions. However they have had an extremely difficult run of fixtures which have seen them face city rivals Barcelona 3 times in that period as well as games against Sevilla, Villarreal and Real Madrid.

      They came within 2 minutes of winning their last home game, which was against Villarreal and are actually unbeaten in 6 matches at the RCDE Stadium in the league. They will see this as a really good chance to pick up a much-needed 3 points.

      Real Sociedad were winners last time out at home to Real Betis but have really struggled on the road of late. They were battered 5-1 at Sporting Gijon in their most recent away game and haven’t won any of their last 7 on the road, avoiding defeat just twice.

      They also have an enormous injury list that includes 8 members of their first team squad including top scorer Imanol Agirretxe. Therefore Espanyol look good value here at 5/6 in the ‘draw no bet’ market.

      There have been goals at both ends in all of Real Sociedad’s last 5 away matches so consider backing a 2-1 Espanyol win here at 9/1.
