On Wednesday night, Valencia and Real Sociedad clash at the Mestalla as both teams look for maximum points in La Liga.Valencia form guide
Los Che’s recent inconsistent form in La Liga continued last time out, as the home team drew 2-2 at Almeria. The result means Valencia has won three, lost two and drawn one of their six league games this season.
The draw at Almeria was another high-scoring encounter for Valencia, as five of their previous eight matches in La Liga have produced over 2.5 goals.
Valencia have been difficult to beat of late at the Mestalla, as Los Che have lost just one of their previous seven home matches in the Spanish top-flight. The run includes four home victories in La Liga. Their recent home games in the league have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four matches.Real Sociedad form guide
La Real have been tough to beat of late in the Spanish top-flight, losing just once in their last seven league games dating back to last season. Last time out, Imanol Alguacil’s team recorded a 4-3 home win over Getafe in a thrilling clash. A victory in this clash would see the visitors move above the home team in the standings.
The game continued a relatively high-scoring run for the side from San Sebastian, as three of their last four matches in the Spanish top-flight.
Real Sociedad has failed to win in their last three away wins in the Spanish top-flight, having picked up just one draw and suffered two defeats. La Real’s recent away games have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored.What am I backing?
These two teams are relatively even, and I can see this game being relatively narrow. However, I believe this could be a high-scoring encounter, so I am backing over 2.5 goals scored.
