Espanyol vs Real Sociedad Predictions

  • Espanyol have suffered just one home defeat in La Liga this season
  • Real Sociedad have scored in their last ten away matches
  • Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine meetings between the two teams

Sociedad flying high

They may have suffered a 2-1 defeat to Monaco in the Europa League in midweek, but Real Sociedad are still enjoying a fantastic season to date, sitting second in La Liga, only one point behind Real Madrid.

Their away form has been particularly impressive, picking up four wins in seven matches, including at Osasuna and Celta Vigo, but as well as scoring in ten consecutive away matches, they are fallible at the back, conceding nine times so far.

Concern remains over their ability to mix it with the very best on the road. They have a tendency to draw with the teams in the race for a Champions League spot, while their sole defeat of the league campaign came at Barcelona.

Esponayol are not in that bracket of top teams, but they pose a tough test for Imanol Alguacil’s side, who may have to settle for another stalemate.

Inconsistent Espanyol

The White and Blues sit firmly in mid-table in La Liga, mainly due to their away record. They have actually won four of their last five at home, including a 2-1 defeat of Real Madrid.

They keep things incredibly tight at RCDE Stadium, conceding just four goals in their seven matches, keeping four clean sheets in the process.

At the other end, they are strong too, netting nine times. Villarreal are the only team who have prevented Vicente Moreno’s side from scoring this season.

This will be a fascinating match-up. A team who are near water-tight at home against a side who are on a remarkable run on their travels. I think both teams will score, but they will cancel each other out in a 1-1 draw.
