Real Sociedad: Rock-Solid at the Back

After winning five league games in a row, conceding just two goals in the process, Real Sociedad picked up a point in a goalless draw with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu last Sunday. The team is now sitting third in the standings with 39 points to its name, and it looks like it has what it takes to finish the season in the top four and play in the Champions League.

Sociedad also reached the quarter-finals of the Spanish Cup. The Basque team is playing extremely well this season against the top teams, but it needs to win maximum points in matches against relatively weaker sides and underdogs like Valladolid. This is an ideal opportunity for a new victory and consolidation at the top of the table, so we will include Real Sociedad in our soccer picks and parlays.

David Silva has joined the likes of Aritz Elustondo, Andoni Gorosabel, Mikel Merino, Ander Guevara, Jon Pacheco, and Alex Sola in the recovery room, but there are no suspended players for the home team. Mikel Oyarzabal could potentially join Alexander Sorloth in the final third of the field. A victory in this match could potentially put Real Sociedad in the title argument if Barcelona drops points to Sevilla on Sunday.

Valladolid: Fighting to Avoid Relegation

Real Valladolid is the worst team in La Liga when it comes to attacking numbers as an away side. It stopped a desperate series of results and defeats with a victory in the last round against Valencia at home. Now it has one point more than Cadiz, the first relegation candidate, and the situation is somewhat more acceptable.

However, there is no doubt this club will spend all season fighting for survival, especially with some very difficult games and away games left. The White and Violets secured a return to La Liga by winning last season’s Segunda Division, and they will now be looking to consolidate back at this level of football, but if you’re betting online, you should continue to fade them.

Real Valladolid will welcome Monchu back into its starting lineup this weekend, with the Spaniard serving his suspension. However, Anuar Tuhami, Kenedy, and Sergio Escudero will remain on the sidelines through injury.

There should be a spot at right-back for Ivan Fresneda despite the constant transfer speculation surrounding him, with Arsenal, Newcastle, Liverpool, and Borussia Dortmund all missing out on the Valladolid youngster in January talks.

Real Sociedad vs Valladolid Head-to-Head

Real Sociedad is the only club that has kept Real Madrid scoreless in Los Blancos’ 30 games this season. They’re great value for their largest points haul and highest position after 19 rounds since the 2002/03 campaign when they finished just two points behind eventual champions Real Madrid.

Last Sunday, Valladolid was just seconds away from failing to score for the sixth straight league fixture and becoming the first club to gift struggling Valencia an away clean sheet but ended up winning 1-0. The visitors lost seven of their nine away games this term, allowing 19 goals.

Valladolid pulled off the upset, beating Sociedad 1-0 in the reverse fixture in October.

Real Sociedad vs Valladolid Betting Lines

Real Sociedad vs Valladolid Picks and Prediction

The hosts enter this clash as heavy favorites, priced at -235 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.

Alexander Sorloth failed to score against Barcelona in the Spanish Cup and against Real Madrid, but it’ll be of great benefit for Sociedad if he finds the back of the net against Valladolid. Sociedad has won all 10 competitive games during 2022-23 in which he scored. But we expect Sociedad to pick up the three points and win this game in style, with or without him.

The Sociedad are listed at -235 in our Vegas La Liga lines.This means that if you wager $100 on Sociedad, you have a chance to win $43. The Valladolid are +725, offering a chance to win $725 on a $100 wager. The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Sociedad a 70.15% chance to win, with Valladolid at 12.12%.
