Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Deportivo Alaves host Real Sociedad in La Liga at the Estadio de Mendizorroza on Thursday. Sociedad’s impressive season is tipped to continue with a victory but their defence is sure to offer up opportunities for the hosts.

Deportivo Alaves Form


Deportivo Alaves look likely to avoid relegation from La Liga. Prior to the break Alaves were impressive with a  2-1 home victory over Athletic Bilbao before drawing 1-1 away to Leganes and 1-1 at home to Valencia.

In their first match back Deportivo Alaves suffered a 2-0 loss to Espanyol at the RCDE Stadium. Alaves played 70 minutes of the match with 10 men after goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco saw red 19 minutes into the match.

Real Sociedad Form


Real Sociedad have enjoyed a cracking season and currently find themselves in fourth position. They’d dearly like to hold onto that Champions League spot but they will need victories in games such as this.

Before the break Real Sociedad beat Mirandes 1-0 in the Copa del Rey before suffering a 1-0 defeat to Barcelona at Camp Nou. Sociedad’s final match before the enforced break saw them record a 2-1 away victory over Eibar.

Real Sociedad returned to La Liga action with a disappointing 1-1 home draw against Osasuna. After the visitors took the lead in the first half Mikel Oyarzabal equalized with half-an-hour to go. 

Real Sociedad News


Real Sociedad are likely to be without the services of midfielders Ander Guevara and Luca Sangalli. They both missed the last match after picking up injuries during the break.

Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Head to Head


Real Sociedad have a 19-12 advantage over Deportivo Alaves with seven draws in their 38 matches played across all competitions.

In their last meeting Sociedad turned out comfortable 3-0 victors at the Anoeta Stadium in September 2019.

Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Odds


Deportivo Alaves are priced as underdogs at 3.30 with Real Sociedad coming in at 1.95. A draw can be backed at 3.50.

In the total goals market over 2.5 goals will pay 2.20 and under 1.66 while BTTS yes is valued at 2.20 and No at 1.66.

Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Match Up


These are two sides and opposite ends of the table with Real Sociedad fighting for a Champions League spot. Only Real Madrid and Barcelona have scored more La Liga goals than Sociedad this season so they will certainly threaten the Alaves defence.

Alaves are seven points clear of relegation and will likely be satisfied with their season thus far. There should be opportunities to get among the goals as Sociedad does tend to concede goals.
