Real Sociedad – Alaves Preview

Real Sociedad faces Deportivo Alaves at the Anoeta in a game from the 19th round of Spanish La Liga. Stay with us and our best free football tips for today.

 

Real Sociedad are aiming once again for a Top 4 finish and another appearance in the Champions League. The only problem is that they are currently 7 points behind the 4th Barcelona, so they need to step up. In their last five matches La Real are unbeaten, but they made three draws – this means they lost some points.

 

Before the Christmas break Real Sociedad made their 7th draw for the season. Imanol’s boys traveled to face Cadiz, but the match ended with no goals scored – 0-0. La Real had some chances, but the attacking players Sadiq, Kubo and Oyarzabal didn’t do enough upfront.

 

We don’t expect to see Imanol Alguacil making a lot of changes against Alaves. The problem against Cadiz was not the line-up, but the team’s overall efficiency. That’s what La Real must improve in the next match.

 

Deportivo Alaves needs points because the team is 16th in the table with 16 points – just three points above the relegation zone. Right now Alaves is in a run of three consecutive losses and that’s something they need to change as quick as possible.

 

Before the break Alaves suffered their 10th defeat for the 2023/24 season. Luis Garcia’s boys hosted Real Madrid, but dramatically lost with a late goal in the injury time. In the 92th minute Alaves’ defense didn’t react well enough which allowed Lucas Vasquez to score a winning goal.

 

Luis Garcia was furious after Madrid scored their winner. Now the manager can make some changes in the starting eleven. Players like Hagi, Alex Sola and Javi Lopez could return in the line-up.
