Having qualified for Europe on the final day of the La Liga season, Real Sociedad look to start the new campaign in more straightforward manner this weekend. They face an away trip to Real Valladolid, who sat firmly in mid-table last term – safe from relegation but not close enough to warrant a serious push for the European places.

Sunday's hosts have made a number of summer acquisitions to try and bridge the gap, namely Fabian Orellana from league rivals Eibar. Can he and others make the difference here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Real Valladolid vs Real Sociedad Betting Tips

After a credible three-match slate to finish last campaign (beat Villarreal, draws against Sevilla and Atletico Madrid), Sociedad stumbled in their pre-season friendlies to start September. They lost 2-0 to Villarreal, drew 2-2 against Deportivo Alaves and needed a first-half Willian Jose penalty to squeeze past mid-table Osasuna. Not ideal.

However, important players were occupied on international duty like Diego Llorente, Mikel Merino (both Spain) and Alexander Isak (Sweden), so we'll cut them some slack. Regardless, they can't afford a slow start to the new La Liga season after losing their star man.

Norwegian playmaker Martin Odegaard (four goals, six assists) was their most consistent performer, but has returned to his parent club Real Madrid. The onus will be on captain Mikel Oyarzabal (ten goals, team-high 11 assists) and last season's top goalscorer Willian Jose (11) to step up accordingly.

Portu (seven goals, eight assists) enjoyed a decent debut campaign after his £9m move from Girona and needs to improve too. Just from listing those names and their creative contributions, it's clear Valladolid have their work cut out this weekend.

Real Valladolid vs Real Sociedad Correct Score Predictions

Valladolid have only beaten Sociedad once in their last four meetings (two draws, one defeat).

That 2-1 victory came in December 2018 and the previous win? You have to go back 15 years – the week before Christmas in 2003 – for the last time Valladolid beat them. Valladolid are tough but judging by those statistics and the visitors' sheer creative quality, I'm backing them.
