Betting tips – Espanyol vs Real Sociedad – 10.02.2017
The 22nd round of Spanish La Liga will start today from 19:45, UK Time. Espanyol and Real Sociedad will face each other and the odds are really well balanced, being difficult to say which team is in pole-position.
Espanyol‘s recent form is getting better and better, coming here after three wins in a row (3-1 vs Granada, 3-1 vs Sevilla and 1-0 vs Malaga). The Catalans are currently on the 8th place in Spanish league, with 32 points and a posivitive goal difference now, 29-27. Espanyol are only three points below Top 6, so they surely hope to finish on an Europa League spot, but it is too early to talk about that. Baptistao, Sanchez, Piatti and Diop are all injured.
Espanyol probable lineup (4-2-3-1): Lopez – Navarro, Lopez, Reyes, Caricol – Fuego, Roca – Perez, Jurado, Reyes – Moreno.
Real Sociedad fight for a Top 4 position this season, but their opponents are really strong: Sevilla, Atletico Madrid and Villarreal. The Basques are on the 5th place now, not bad at all, only one point below fourth position. They have a total of 38 points in their account, with a good goal difference too, 34-30. The reverse fixture ended with a draw back in September, 1-1.
Real Sociedad (4-3-3): Rulli – Zaldua, Navas, Martinez, Yuri – Prieto, Illarramendi, Zurutuza – Vela, Jose, Oyarzabal.
Prediction: 1X @ 1.45
As we said, Espanyol Barcelona have shown a good home form in the past four months, proof that they are undefeated in the last nine games here. We expect them to get at least one point today as well.
