Real Sociedad will be aiming to bolster their European credentials as they head to Mendizorroza to take on city rivals Deportivo Alaves in Sunday's LaLiga action.

Deportivo Alaves vs Real Sociedad Betting Tips: BTTS

Alaves headed into the two-week break for international duties with a bitter taste in their mouths, having suffered a 0-2 loss to Basque rivals Athletic Bilbao, though things could have been vastly different had Luis Rioja converted from the penalty spot in the 13th minute.

As such, a lone one-goal victory over lower-placed Rayo Vallecano back on March 10 stands out as the only ray of sunshine for El Glorioso in their depressing run of seven matches, plummeting to defeat on three occasions and sharing the spoilts just as many times.

Despite enduring a turbulent period of late, Luis Garcia Plaza's crew is well on their way to extending their stay in the Spanish top-flight for at least another season, flaunting a healthy 7-point advantage along with an extra match in hand over Cadiz, who sit just below the danger line.

Playing in front of their home crowd has proven to be extremely beneficial for the Blue-Whites this term, as they have put up 21 out of a total of 32 points and claimed six out of seven victories on home soil, with only Barcelona managing to leave Mendizorroza with a full haul of points in 2024.

Meanwhile, Real Sociedad embarks on a brief 78-kilometer journey after regaining confidence just before the international break, capitalizing on their superiority to dismantle two relegation contenders, Granada and Cadiz, netting five times in the process.

A double dose of LaLiga success comes as a welcome change for Imanol Alguacil's troops after enduring four straight blows across all fronts, a dire streak that saw them crash out from both the Copa del Rey and UEFA Champions League, indicating that they will shift all focus towards the European finish in the remaining part of the season.

The likelihood of a recurrence of last season's fourth-place triumph seems remote, as Thuxi-Urdin's outfit trails Atletik Bilbao by a daunting 10 points in fourth, compounded by their disappointing showings away from home, coming out on top in just two out of their last six fixtures on the road.

Lately, Sociedad's defense has become quite leaky, resulting in them conceding two or more in six straight outings in all tournaments, opening the door for Alaves to get on the scoresheet, buoyed by their knack for breacking opposition nets in any of their six home fixtures in 2024. We're anticipating an open contest at Mendizorroza, where both sides could ripple the back of the net.

Deportivo Alaves team news

With no clear explanation for his complete exclusion from the second March friendly against Ivory Coast, Andoni Gorosabel is anticipated to be fully prepared to take on his former team.

Forced to exit in the 57th minute due to an apparent injury in his side's 0-2 loss against Athletic Bilbao in the latest LaLiga fixture before the two-week break, Jon Guridi will undergo assessment to determine his availability.

As they prepare for the Mendizorroza showdown, Real Sociedad finds themselves troubled by a wave of injuries, sidelining Aihen Munoz and Carlos Fernandez, with the recent addition of Brais Mendez to the treatment table after fracturing his right foot during practice.

Txuri-Urdin's winger Ander Barrenetxea remains in doubt after missing the last two matches due to back issues, while defender Robin Le Normand stays out of contention due to a one-match suspension.
