Real Sociedad host Valencia in La Liga on Tuesday evening. Sociedad are improving and should have too much firepower for a Valencia side under severe pressure.

Real Sociedad Form


Real Sociedad started the new season with draws against Real Valladolid and Real Madrid before beating Elche 3-0 on Saturday.

Second half goals to Portu, Adnan Januzaj and Roberto López secured an easy win in a dominant display. Imanol Alguacil’s side had 60% possession, 27-5 shots and 3.37-1.24 expected goals.

Real Sociedad Team News


Alex Sola and Joseba Zaldua are injured with Andoni Gorosabel to continue at right-back. Holding midfielder and captain Asier Illarramendi is injured.

Striker Willian Jose could return after recovering from coronavirus. 20-year-old forward Roberto López has scored in both of his La Liga appearances this season.

New signing David Silva is pushing to play the full 90 minutes after one start and one substitute appearance.

Valencia Form


Valencia started the new season with a 4-2 win against Levante and a 2-1 defeat at Celta Vigo. They drew 1-1 at home against Huesca on Saturday.

Daniel Wass opened the scoring but they couldn’t hold on an will be happy with a point. Javi Gracia’s side had 5-17 shots and 0.31-1.11 expected goals.

Their inability to create quality chances continues after they managed just 0.46 expected goals at Celta Vigo.

Valencia Team News


Centre-backs Eliaquim Mangala and Gabriel Paulista are both out injured. Mouctar Diakhaby is doubtful with a minor hamstring complaint which leaves 20-year-old Hugo Guillamón the only fully fit central defender.

Winger Denis Cheryshev is also out injured, goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen is doubtful alongside young winger Carlos Soler.

Valencia are battling off-field issues with owner Peter Lim controversially selling club captain Dani Parejo and midfield partner Francis Coquelin to Villarreal. 

Reports also surfaced in August that “all but one” of the Valencia squad was for sale.

Real Sociedad vs Valencia Match Up


Real Sociedad come into this game with an impressive unbeaten run in La Liga. They will be confident of getting their second win of the season after an impressive performance at Elche.

Valencia’s rocky beginning to the campaign certainly won’t be aided by injuries to key central defenders. Despite their opening day win, Javi Gracia’s side haven’t looked convincing and are struggling to create chances.
