LWDWLW

Real Sociedad will be looking for another win after a 2-1 Europa League triumph vs Omonia Nicosia.

In that game, Real Sociedad managed 71% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 4 on target. For Real Sociedad, the goals were scored by Ander Guevara (30') and Alexander Sørloth (80'). Omonia Nicosia got 2 shots at goal with 1 on target. Bruno Souza (72') was the scorer for Omonia Nicosia.

Real Sociedad haven’t had any problems with scoring, netting in one hundred percent of their last 6 games.

They’ve totted up the amount of 7 during that period while also conceding a total of 8. That kind of pattern might not be carried forward into this game, of course.

Going into this encounter, Real Sociedad haven’t won at home in the past 3 league matches.

Espanyol

Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Sevilla in La Liga action, Espanyol will be aiming to make amends here.

In that game, Espanyol had 60% possession and 20 attempts at goal with 5 on target. For Espanyol, goals were scored by Joselu (49') and Martin Braithwaite (62'). On the other side, Sevilla got 11 shots on goal with 7 on target. Érik Lamela (1') and Carmona (26', 45') scored for Sevilla.

Diego Martínez's Espanyol have had reason to celebrate scoring 6 times in the course of their most recent sextet of matches. The number of goals that have been scored against them during those same clashes equals 10.

Going into this game, the form guide shows that Espanyol:

  • are winless against Real Sociedad in away games against them for the last 5 matches in the league. Not the best of away records.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.

👥 Head to head

Checking on their most recent head to head clashes stretching back to 18/05/2019 shows us that Real Sociedad have won 4 of them and Espanyol 2, with the tally of drawn results being 0.

An aggregate of 13 goals were shared by the two clubs in these games, with 8 for Txuri-urdin and 5 created by Periquitos. That is an average goals per game value of 2.17.

The previous league contest between these clubs was La Liga match day 30 on 04/04/2022 when it ended Real Sociedad 1-0 Espanyol.

That day, Real Sociedad managed 68% possession and 17 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Their only player on the scoresheet was Alexander Isak (96').

At the other end, Espanyol had 8 shots on goal with 2 on target.

The match was refereed by Santiago Jaime Latre.

📋 Team News: Real Sociedad

Martín Merquelanz (Knee Injury), Robin Le Normand (Metatarsal Fracture), Umar Sadiq (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Carlos Fernández (Hamstring Injury) and Mikel Oyarzabal (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not available for Real Sociedad gaffer Imanol Alguacil.

It’s our opinion that Txuri-urdin will possibly opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation this time, beginning the first half with Alex Remiro, Andoni Gorosabel, Igor Zubeldia, Jon Pacheco, Aihen Munoz, Martin Zubimendi, Mikel Merino, Brais Mendez, David Silva, Takefusa Kubo and Alexander Soerloth.

📋 Team News: Espanyol

Owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection, the Espanyol boss Diego Martínez has zero fitness worries to report ahead of this match.

From our viewpoint, Periquitos will likely elect for a 4-2-3-1 lineup, starting Alvaro Fernandez, Aleix Vidal, Leandro Cabrera, Fernando Calero, Brian Olivan, Edu Exposito, V. de Souza, Javier Puado, Sergi Darder, Martin Braithwaite and Joselu.

💭 Prediction

We’re thinking that Real Sociedad will most probably stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.

In contrast, Espanyol may well find it hard to score themselves although we do think that they will probably end up hitting back at some stage.

Our tip is for a 3-1 winning score for Real Sociedad at the end of this one.

Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
