Real Betis vs Real Sociedad prediction
Betis managed to take a point in a 1:1 game on the road to Alaves, in a match that could have actually ended both ways.
It was their hosts who have taken the lead already in the fourteenth minute, but the visitors looked far better from that moment on.
They even missed the penalty kick towards the end of the first halftime, continuing to be better in the second and more than deservedly have leveled up the result via Emerson in the 55th minute.
Even after that, they stood to play with a man less in the last fifteen minutes, however without being threatened much switching the things into their favor entirely.
Betis didn't have that difficult task winning over amateur side Portugalete 3:0 away from home the previous weekend in Copa del Rey match.
The home side will miss injured midfielder Alonso (11/0), but also another midfielder Carvalho (6/0) and forward Juanmi (2/0). Defender Feddal (10/0) is suspended for this clash.
Sociedad was actually a favorite in their home game against Villarreal last time out in LaLiga, however, the team failed to maintain the consistency in a 1:2 loss.
They did take the lead first, via a goal from Willian Jose in the 22nd minute and it looked like they control the game. The side did have more of the ball possession, however, weren't as sharp as usual in the attack.
Instead of it, it was the guests that moved the ball in a more effective way and got lucky a bit since they scored out of a rare number of chances.
That defeat broke their undefeated run of four matches, as they now stand at the fifth position with four points less than Champions League placed Sevilla. Enough reasons to make this clash a must winning one if they are to compete for such meaningful spots.
Sociedad also didn't have a very difficult task away from home against Ceuta in the Copa del Rey clash last Sunday afternoon winning with a 4:0 result.
The guests will miss defender Elustondo (8/0), but also midfielders Illarramendi (3/0) and Zurutuza (4/0).
Goals are written all over this since both teams do look like in a decent momentum and do present themselves far better in the attack than what their reliability is.
Betis is in a good atmosphere, while Sociedad surely comes trying to attack and seek for more than a point, something that promises quite an open game.
