Alaves vs Real Sociedad Prediction and Betting Preview 18 June 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-0
Alaves vs Real Sociedad PredictionReal Sociedad have turned heads with their impressive displays so far this campaign. Sitting fourth on the standings with 47 points from 28 games, the Royal are very much in the running for a Champions League place finish. In fact, they are currently in the driving seat.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 29
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz)
However, with fifth-placed Getafe level on points with Real Sociedad, the latter cannot afford any blip in form at this crucial stage of the season. The Royal need to take each game at a time, putting in their best performances to secure positive results to retain their place amongst the top-four mix.

Head coach Imanol Aguacil might be deserving of a pat on the back for the amazing work he had put in, since arriving at the club. He seems to have grasped a good understanding of all his players, using them to their full potentials.

With a game against underwhelming side Alaves around the corner, Real Socieded will be sliding their clips in, as they look to set their guns blazing here. Expect a cracking game between these sides come kickoff.

Alaves vs Real Sociedad Team News

Serial mid-table outfit Alaves have been enduring a difficult campaign, sitting 15th on the standings after 28 games. Their lackluster-nature has seen them drop down the standings and with no substantial improvements made, could plummet further.

Last time out in the league, Alaves set out to take on relegation candidates Espanyol and were deemed favorites for the win. However, Babazorros never really got going as they outclassed by the opposition, in every single department on the pitch.

On the back foot for large parts of the game, they were breached just on the stroke of half-time via a well-taken Espinosa goal. A second goal from Wu Lei just after the restart put the game to bed as Espanyol roared to a comfortable 2-0 victory.

Hoping to steer clear of the chasing pack, Real Sociedad were desperate for all three points when they played host to Osasuna on the last match-day. The Whites and Blues looked in good shape, dominating proceedings for large parts of the game.

However, for all their pressure, Imanol Aguacil’s men were forced to settle for a draw. Osasuna showed grit and resilience in this fixture, ensuring they kept their high-flying opposition at bay. As a reward, they bagged a well-deserved point at the sound of the final whistle.

Now, Alaves are on a three-game winless run in the league. They have emerged victorious in just three of their preceding ten La Liga clashes – two of those three coming on home turf. This comes to show that Asier Garitano’s men command a great deal of respect on this ground. In fact, 18 of their 29 league goals have come at this venue.

Meanwhile, Real Sociedad have admitted defeat just once in their previous five league games. However, worryingly for the visitors, they are sporting a meagre form on the road. But given they secured wins from their last two trips to this ground, they will be heading here with so much confidence.

Alaves vs Real Sociedad Predictions

Taking Alaves’ home record into context, you will be tempted to tip them for the win here. However, it is worth noting that Real Sociedad have been enjoying a much more productive campaign than Garitano’s charges. Also, the visitors get the nod when it comes to recent h2h meetings.

Alaves are very likely to give the Royal a run for their money here. Nonetheless, Real Sociedad’s quality should see them through, perhaps via a narrow win margin.
