Real Valladolid vs Real Sociedad Team News

Even though they booked a ticket to the Europa League, Real Sociedad never really looked convincing towards the closing stages of the previous term. They began the season very brightly, quickly rising to the business end of the standings.

They were simply faultless at the time, producing strong performances to remain in contention for a top-four finish. Against all odds, this brilliant run of form continued till March, as they remained favorites to qualify for the Champions League.

However, the coronavirus break caused more harm than good for the Royal as they returned to be pitch misfiring on all cylinders. A side that had been on a roll previously, Alguacil’s men struggled to get points on board.

Falling to four consecutive defeats in June, Sociedad plummeted down the standings, and out of the top-four mix. In fact, the White and Blues were fortunate to have qualified for the Europa League as they held a measly two-point buffer in the top-seven pack.

As there were no injury concerns for the Royal at the time, nothing can exactly be attributed to their sudden dip-in-form. In preparation for the new season, Alguacil has brought in veteran maestro David Silva to bolster his midfield options.

Even so, the Spanish gaffer will be ruing the loss of star player Martin Odegaard who has now returned to his parent club, Real Madrid. It remains to be seen whether the absence of the young Norwegian will affect Sociedad’s ambitions negatively.

The signing of Silva has been regarded as a coup for the club, and there is no doubt the player is capable of leading this side to glory. Sociedad remain favorites here against a Valladolid side that will be content to remain about midtable.

Recording nine victories from 38 games last season, Real Valladolid finished 13th on the log, and were some miles off the relegation places. They recorded a victory on the final day to bring an end to a disturbing three-game losing streak.

As kickoff draws nearer, Sergio Gonzalez will be looking to draft in a decent replacement for defender Mohammed Salisu, who recently left the club for Premier League outfit Southampton.

Injured or Suspended Players

Real Valladolid: Kiko Olivas and Raul Carnero.

Real Sociedad: Ander Guevara, Asier Illarramendi, Alex Sola, Mikel Oyarzabal, Willian Jose, David Silva, Joseba Zaldua and Martin Zubimendi.

Valladolid vs Real Sociedad Predictions

With Odegaard out of the club, Sociedad will have to adapt to life without the wonderkid. As such, this game could be closer than we initially envisaged.

However, after enduring a horrendous end to the previous campaign, the Royal will be determined to bounce back to winning ways here. Likely to be fortuitous, the visitors should grab the win nonetheless.
