Both teams are in the same form recently. Firstly – a loss in the league, then a win in the 1/16-finals of Copa del Rey and after that three consecutive defeats in La Liga. Both teams started the year with a win in the league and with a draw in their away fixtures in Copa del Rey.

Both teams are in similar positions in the standings, with two points more for Espanyol, while Real Sociedad have one goal more scored. On the other hand, Real Sociedad are the worst home team in the league this season with four defeats and just one win in eight fixtures, while Espanyol are sixth as hosts. The problems for the team from Barcelona are the away games, where Espanyol have one win and five defeats in ten fixtures, while Sociedad are the second best away team in the league.

In our analysis at Real Madrid – Real Sociedad, we mentioned that the winter break could have a refreshing impact on Sociedad’ players. This proved was proved right, and the team took the victory on Santiago Bernabéu and drew with Betis. We think that the good performance of Real Sociedad will continue and they will take a second win at home for the season.

I will back Real Sociedad to Win, with Real Sociedad 1-0 Correct Score. We recommend placing this bet in bet365, where you can take advantage of a $100 Welcome Bonus and regular promotions for loyal customers.
