Valencia vs Sociedad (By: Saconex)
Spain La Liga
Valencia (8) vs Real Sociedad (9)
After the weak start of the season Valencia have climbed up to the top half with their total record of 6-12-4 and 24-20 in goal difference. They are very hard to break down, but doesn’t manage to grab 3 points from tight matches as often as they should. They are coming from reaching the final of Copa del Rey after taking down Betis (6) in 2 matches, and also grabbed 1 point away vs Barcelona (1) in the last league match, ending 2-2.
Real Sociedad are placed behind todays opponent thanks to the goal difference. Total record is 8-6-8 with 27-25 in goal difference. They are undefeated in 7 straight matches in all competitions, and are normally able to create problems for most teams in La Liga, specially on a good day. Last match ended with 3 points, after winning 2-1 vs Athletic Club (13), absolutely deserved 3 points there.
* Valencia won the reverse fixture by 0-1 back in September
* Last 10 meetings: 4-1-5
Matches between these two are often exciting to follow, but to be fair I think this one will be tight taking in mind the situation both teams are in. Both have ambitions for a Europe spot, and both teams are probably happy enough with 1 point here. The most important thing will be not to lose this, and I think chances for a draw is big. Valencia are travelling to face Celtic on Thursday and will have that match in mind as well. Overall I consider the guests as small favourites, but 1 point for both looks most realistic.
