Real Sociedad v Athletic Bilbao Betting Tips: Hosts to get the better of Basque rivals

Sunday’s Spanish football kicks off with the Basque derby between Real Sociedad and Atheltic Bilbao at Anoeta – a fixture that served up a five-goal cracker earlier in the campaign. In recent years, this fixture has been a real battle between two teams fighting it out for European football and, with Sociedad currently in 5th, albeit somewhat comfortably, and Bilbao in 7th, this year isn’t much different. On their day, both of these two sides are very easy on the eye, they play an attractive possession game and are capable of creating plenty of scoring chances in doing so. However,…

Real Betis v Real Sociedad Betting Tips: Los Verdiblancos can come out on top

A jam-packed La Liga schedule continues on Friday night as Real Betis host Real Sociedad at Benito Villamarín. Despite their superiority in the league standings, Sociedad haven’t been at their best recently and face another tough test against a Betis side who’ve become hard to overcome on their own patch. At the prices, the hosts really do catch the eye here. Víctor Sánchez has got his team playing well at home and, as touched on above, they’re certainly not an easy side to overcome. Against a Sociedad team whose performances have left plenty to be desired of late, Betis are well worth…

Real Sociedad v Eibar Betting Tips: Los Armeros overpriced at Anoeta

Having recorded pleasing victories last time out, both Sociedad and Eibar will be looking to continue their assault on the European places when they meet at Anoeta on Tuesday night. Little Eibar, although they’re not so little in footballing terms these days, continue to rise up the table and are proving week in, week out that they’re capable of tussling with pretty much anyone in La Liga. Given that they’ve performed well for some time now, it’s surprising that the visitors are as big as they are in the betting ahead of this, especially since Sociedad haven’t exactly been at…

Las Palmas v Real Sociedad Betting Tips: Basque side to come out on top

Having tasted defeat last time out, both by the narrowest of margins, both Las Palmas and Real Sociedad will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they face each other at Estadio Gran Canaria on Friday night. Despite losing in their last match, there’s good reason to fancy the chances of the visiting team ahead of this fixture, and, at odds of 7/4, backing ‘Real Sociedad to Win’ is the way to go. Form of late doesn’t exactly make great reading for Sociedad fans; however, they’ve faced a number of tough fixtures in quick succession and, with this…

Real Sociedad v Villarreal Betting Tips: Hosts to kick Yellow Submarine while they’re down

Having won each of their last two fixtures in La Liga, Real Sociedad will be looking to make it three on the bounce when they host an out-of-form Villarreal in Sunday’s early kick-off. In recent weeks, it appears as though these two have been heading in different directions and, as they currently sit in 5th and 6th, this looks to be the perfect opportunity for Sociedad to put some real daylight between themselves and their opponents here. Right now, only one of these two clubs look as though they’re at the races and, in front of a home crowd, Sociedad…

Both Teams to Score Betting Tips: Friday night double

Mainz 05 v Augsburg With just one clean sheet between them, and both conceding five goals each, in six matches combined since returning from the winter-break in Germany, goals at both ends look on the cards when these two teams meet on Friday night. Full write-up/preview for this fixture can be found here. Espanyol v Real Sociedad Having scored seven goals in their three fixtures in 2017, Espanyol are looking like a team in strong attacking form right now. At the same time, Sociedad are no slouches in front of goal (failed to score just twice away from home this season)…

Espanyol v Real Sociedad Betting Tips: A night for the forwards at RCDE Stadium

Match-day 22 in La Liga begins as Espanyol play host to Real Sociedad at RCDE Stadium on Friday night. Having both claimed important victories in the last round of fixtures, this pair will be looking to further enhance their standing in the table. After initially returning from what was a short-lived winter-break in Spain, Espanyol limped into 2017 by claiming just a single point from their first two fixtures of the year; however, they’ve since turned in a string of good performances to win three on the bounce. On the other hand, Sociedad have been a up and down recently, but…

Real Sociedad v Osasuna Betting Tips: Anoeta booked for a glut of home goals

Real Sociedad look to bounce back from last weekend’s Bernabéu disappointment on Sunday evening. Fortunately for them, they host the defensively-useless Osasuna – if you could play any of La Liga’s teams right now in order to get back on the up then Osasuna would be the clear choice, that’s for sure. On the whole, barring a few hiccups, Sociedad have enjoyed a decent campaign so far and are currently within striking distance of the Champions League spots. In facing bottom of the league opposition here, the hosts will certainly fancy their chances of regaining the winning thread and are fancied…

Real Madrid v Real Sociedad Betting Tips: Basque outfit not to be discounted at Bernabéu

Having failed to make it through in the Copa del Rey during the week, both Real Madrid and Real Sociedad will be looking to bounce back when they meet each other at The Santiago Bernabéu on Sunday night. After going unbeaten for no less than 40 matches, the Real Madrid train, that looked as though it was speeding towards the title, has been derailed in recent weeks. Firstly, Zidane’s men came unstuck away to Sevilla, before losing at home against Celta in the cup just three days later. A narrow 2-1 victory against Málaga and a 2-2 draw away at Celta in…

Villarreal v Real Sociedad Betting Tips: Second leg to follow same path as the first

Villarreal and Sociedad will meet each other for the second time in a week as they come together at Estadio El Madrigal for the second leg of this Copa del Rey last-16 tie. Having secured a fairly convincing home victory in the first leg (3-1), Eusebio Sacristán and his Sociedad team will be reasonably confident that they can make it through to the last eight of the competition; however, in conceding a late goal last Wednesday their lead isn’t as secure as it would’ve been and Villarreal – a team who’re tough to face on their own patch – aren’t out…

Barcelona travel to take on Real Sociedad at the Anoeta on Sunday evening and the visitors will be hoping that their fortunes in this fixture improve. A fixture against Barcelona, whether it be home or away, is usually one that teams fear; however, in recent times, Sociedad have thrived against the Catalan giants at the Anoeta and are now unbeaten against them on home soil since 2007. On top of this, the hosts come into this fixture in good form and will certainly fancy their chances of once again upsetting Luis Enrique’s men. Even though this is somewhat of a…

Leganés v Real Sociedad – probably not the most glamorous of La Liga fixtures, but an interesting match-up nonetheless. Based on their expectations for this campaign – as a newly promoted side Leganés will want to remain in the division, while Sociedad will likely have their sights set on a European place – both teams, as they sit in 14th and 7th after nine games, will be relatively pleased with how things have gone so far. If we look at the respective home and away records of these two sides, it would appear that neither have been in good form; however,…

The Spanish top flight returns on Friday night as Espanyol travel to face Real Sociedad at the Anoeta Stadium. These two sides, in terms of points scored, have made similar starts to the campaign, although there is some contrast in the way they’ve gone about things so far. Having lost 3-0 against Real Madrid on the opening weekend, Sociedad followed up with a 2-0 win over Osasuna last time out and now sit firmly in the middle of the pack on three points. Espanyol, on the other hand, were involved in ten goal thriller first time out, unfortunately for them,…

Real Sociedad – Real Madrid. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

Real Madrid have to take three points here if they want to stay in the title race. But playing in San Sebastian is never an easy task: as we remember, both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid dropped points there this season. Sociedad have nothing to fight for now, but this won’t hinder the Basques dislike for any of the capital-city teams. With this in mind it’s hard to see them not being motivated against Real Madrid. Eusebio Sacristan Mena is a former Barcelona man, so he will definitely be looking to get his players ready for a fight against Zidane’s team. They…

Real Sociedad – Real Madrid. Valeri Karpin’s prediction

Real Madrid are coming off the back of a tough away game in midweek against Manchester City in the Champions League, and thus a lack of fitness may well be evident. The usual answer to this would be to rest key players so that they are fit for the return leg of the Champions League semi-final; however, things are not that simple. The Royals are once again back in with a shot at the title, and, although they are seemingly the third favourites right now, they will want to continue winning domestically in order to keep the pressure on both…

Villarreal – Real Sociedad. Alexander Vishnevskiy’s prediction

Villarreal have recently got perhaps too carried away with the Europa League, and as a result have suffered two consecutive defeats domestically. If Marcelino doesn’t resume winning ways it may cost them their Champions League qualification spot, something that would be very costly from a financial perspective. Meanwhile, in a weeks time, the focus will switch again, and Villarreal won’t be too bothered about the league game, as it will be sandwiched between the two legs of their European semi-final. So, Villarreal must win – here and now. They are good at home (19/25 wins). They have everyone healthy, including…

Real Sociedad – Getafe. Alexander Vishnevskiy’s prediction

Getafe are rolling downhill. Their football is becoming much like their stadium –  dull and always empty. In the last 13 matches the team from the Madrid suburbs have taken only 2 points and as a result have dropped right to the foot of the table. If a miracle does not happen soon, their chances of La Liga survival will be nil. On the other hand, Real Sociedad are in good condition, despite a series of injuries. Having said this, all these missing players have long been absent, and the San Sebastian team has learned to do without them. With…

Real Sociedad – Barcelona. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

Barcelona have not won at San Sebastian for eight years, no matter who was in charge of the Catalan club – Tito Villanova, Gerardo Martino or Luis Enrique – Barcelona just haven’t been able to get the win, an incredible record for Real Sociedad. The Blaugrana have only taken one point from their last five games at Anoeta Stadium. But I think that all streaks come to an end sooner or later. Real Sociedad unexpectedly won at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan last week, stealing the points somewhat. So now it could be time for their fortunes to be reversed, with a loss at home looking on…

Celta Vigo – Real Sociedad. Alexander Vishnevskiy’s prediction

Both of these teams like to attack and also score a lot in their head to head games. Here are the stats of their five last matches between each other: 4:3, 2:2, 2:2, 1:1, 3:2. Eduardo Berizzo’s team have all chances to win as Real Sociedad have a lot of players missing. Agirretxe, Vela, Granero and Canales are all injured. Celta Vigo have one important player missing too – it’s Fabian Orellana who’s suspended. But Celta’s midfield is strong even without the Chilian: Nolito, Guidetti and Iago Aspas can make the attack lovely. Celta Vigo should go forward to regain their face after…

The kings of Madrid are back. Atletico defeated Real Madrid for the third time in a row in La Liga and now they are back to their fans to bring them joy again. But it will not be a bed of roses. Real Sociedad got 13 points in their last five games. Asier Illarramendi, Aritz Elustondo and Jonathas are back from their suspension, but Inigo Martinez, the centre-back is suspended now. All of Atletico Madrid players are able to play and only the fatigue after the derby match can get in their way to win. But the upcoming game is…

Real Sociedad – Malaga. Valeri Karpin’s prediction

Real Sociedad are on fire now – they won their four last games in La Liga with 11:1 goal difference. Jonathas and Mikel Oyarzabal are in shipshape form now. Maybe Eusebio’s team will fight for the Champions League spot later this season. Malaga are playing at the average level. They get points mostly at home while in away games they look weak. And now they have a lot of players injured. So we can go for the home team win in the upcoming game. Everything is easier at home and Sociedad’s team are in good condition.

Athletic Bilbao – Real Sociedad. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

It’s a Basque derby at San Mamés. Real Sociedad are in good shape, they scored 8 goals in the last two games without conceding a single goal. Yes, there were against Espanyol and Granada. But still, it is evident that the Sociedad are now well-prepared even without Imanol Agirretxe. Jonathas took the role of striker, he scores regularly. 18-year old Oyarzabal has also been playing well, scoring in the last two games. Besides that after all, the team leader Carlos Vela is also in good shape. So, the guests will have a chance to score a goal. Athletic spent a lot of energy…

Real Sociedad – Deportivo La Coruna. Alexander Vishnevskiy’s prediction

Deportivo La Coruna crumbled in last two games with eight conceded goals and no goals scored. We can understand their loss 0:5 to Real Madrid who were on fire after Zidane appointment. But the humiliation from Segunda side Mirandes at home 0:3 was a real disgrace. Deportivo will play without their central back Arribas in San Sebastian. He is usually useful in defence and in set pieces. This is a big blow for them. But Real Sociedad have even more troubles. Aguiretxe, Canales and Granero are injured. But Sociedad defeated Valencia without them. And they had no Cup games so…

Real Madrid – Real Sociedad. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

Real Madrid have been conceding a lot lately. They kept a clean sheet only against Eibar, although the Basques had chances. Madrid concede little in the Champions League, but their tactics are different there. Since match day 9 they have conceded nearly in each match in Spain. If you look into the recent matches between these two at Bernabeu, the home team both scored and conceded in the last five meetings. So, here I am ready to offer both teams to score. There are Agirretxe,  Canales, Vela and Gonzalo Castro. The guests will score, I think, while the goal of…

Real Madrid – Real Sociedad. Valeri Karpin’s prediction

We have a definite favourite – Real Madrid. They were criticized a lot by their own fans even after win 10:2 over Rayo Vallecano but it’s understandable: Rayo scored, but then two players got sent off. That’s why Real Madrid must prove themselves again to avoid the pressure of fans. And they can do it against Real Sociedad. More to say, I don’t believe in away team to score. Real Madrid hardly concedes at home so I suggest to bet on them to win with no conceded goals. Single: Lost Real Madrid - Real Sociedad 30.12.2015 15:00 BST Spanish Primera…

Barcelona – Real Sociedad. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

Barcelona are the favourites of course. Ten goals against Real Madrid and AS Roma speak for itself. This is a big temptation to bet on a solid win of the Catalans. But as we know, Real Sociedad have changed their manager – now the team is ruled by the former Barcelona’s youth team coach and former Barcelona player, Eusebio Sakristan. He was also working with Frank Rijkaard in Barcelona’s main team. Real Socieded had a comfortable win over Sevillia with him. Sakristan knows how to play against Barcelona but even with this knowleage the task is too hard. Barcelona can easily create scoring…
