      Real Sociedad vs Las Palmas Predictions


      It is the side from Gran Canaria who currently hold the advantage though. Las Palmas were 2-1 winners in the 1st leg a fortnight ago thanks to goals from Asdrúbal and Hernán and it leaves the tie very finally poised going into the 2nd leg.

      They also picked up a crucial win on Saturday night thanks to an injury time goal from Willian José which gave them a 1-0 win over Real Betis and moved them off the bottom of the table and into 19th. Real Sociedad are only 3 points better off but should have too much quality to get dragged into a genuine relegation scrap.

      The Basque side were unfortunate to only draw 1-1 at Getafe on Friday night and won their previous league game against Eibar. With numerous players returning from injury they are now basically at full strength and are looking a much better unit than they were in the troublesome opening few months of the campaign.

      This game is in truth more important for Real Sociedad than Las Palmas, whose sole aim in their first season back in the top flight in 14 years, is to stay there. By contrast Real Sociedad could really do with a cup run, which is likely to be the only way they can qualify for Europe this term given they’ve only picked up 16 points from their opening 15 games in the league.

      Therefore we can expect a strong side from Real Sociedad here and with home advantage they are worth backing at 1.700 with a -0.5 Asian Handicap against what isn’t likely to be a full strength Las Palmas side given they will be back in action in the league just 3 days later at Espanyol.

      A 2 goal win will see Real Sociedad through to the next round so at 14/1 consider taking a punt on them to seal a 3-1 win.
