  • Kickoff: 20:00 UTC +1 / 22:00 CEST
  • Venue: Anoeta

Real Sociedad will continue their chase for a European place when they welcome Valencia to Anoeta on Thursday night.

The hosts are one of the teams that have underperformed in this division this season. Imanol Alguacil’s side currently sit in seventh and that’s surprising for a side that finished each of their last four campaigns in the top six. But with just one point separating the White and Blues from sixth placed Betis, a win on Thursday will be massive.

Valencia enjoyed an impressive form between February and late April that pushed them into the top half of the table, but Los Ches have been very poor lately. They enter this week’s game with a run of four consecutive games without a win and suffered four defeats in that spell. However, Rubén Baraja’s men will take heart from the fact that they have lost only one of their last seven meetings with Real Sociedad in La Liga.

Real Sociedad vs Valencia Betting Tips: Under 2.5 goals

When it comes to meetings between Real Sociedad and Valencia in La Liga the absence of goals has been the major headline in recent years. Four of the last five meetings produce under one goal.

Goals have also been dry for Real Sociedad lately. Indeed, the hosts scored more than one goal in just two of their last six matches. Each of their last four fixtures ended with under two goals and I fancy Thursday’s game with Valencia to end similarly.

  • Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals
  • Real Sociedad vs Valencia prediction: 1-0
