Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Preview & Betting Tips


Deportivo Alaves entertain Real Sociedad at the Estadio de Mendizorroza in La Liga on Thursday evening. Sociedad have impressed this season and are tipped to win, but their inconsistent defence is likely to offer up chances.

Deportivo Alaves Form & News


Deportivo Alaves look set to avoid the drop from La Liga. Before to the coronavirus-enforced break, Alaves were excellent in their 2-1 home win over Athletic Bilbao, before sharing the points in a 1-1 away draw at Leganes and a 1-1 stalemate at home with Valencia.

In their first match back from the break, Deportivo Alaves went down 2-0 to Espanyol at the RCDE Stadium. Alaves had to play 70 minutes of the clash with 10 men after goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco was sent off just 19 minutes into the clash.

Deportivo Alaves will have to do without the services of goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco for this clash after he was sent off against Espanyol.

Real Sociedad Form & News


Real Sociedad have been excellent this campaign and currently occupy the last UEFA Champions League spot. They would dearly like to hold onto that top-four spot, so they know they will need to win fixtures like this.

Before La Liga went on break, Real Sociedad defeated Mirandes 1-0 in the Copa del Rey before narrowly losing 1-0 against Barcelona at Camp Nou. Sociedad’s final match before the break ended in a 2-1 away win over Eibar.

Sociedad returned to action with a rather disappointing 1-1 home draw with Osasuna. The visitors went ahead in the first half, but Mikel Oyarzabal drew the side level with 30 minutes left on the clock. 

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 Match Up


Only title rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona have hit the back of the net more in La Liga than Real Sociedad this campaign, so they will worry the shaky Alaves defence.

Alaves are seven points above the relegation zone, which will be a relief for all involved. The home side will fancy their chances of scoring in this clash, as the Sociedad defence can be got at.
