Real Sociedad hosts Valencia
Real Sociedad had an average start of the new season, winning 8 points so far and having a balanced record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. In their last two matches, La Real are unbeaten, winning against Huesca and making a draw against Rayo Vallecano at home.
The Basques were unable to beat Rayo in their previous game at the Estadio Municipal de Anoeta. Jon Bautista and Willian Jose scored for the home team, but Luis Advincula and Oscar Trejo’s goals guaranteed a point for Rayo Vallecano.
Valencia, on the other hand, can’t be satisfied with the way they started their campaign. In 6 matches played so far, Los Che is still without a win. They have a record of 5 draws and one loss, which is why they are currently 15th in the league standings with just 5 points won. Last season was successful for Valencia and they reached the Champions League for the first time since a few years, but this was really not the beginning they wished for.
In their last game, Valencia made a 1-1 draw during the home game against Celta. Michy Batshuayi opened the score for Los Che, but Iago Aspas equalized for Celta just 8 minutes before the end of the game. This was just another disappointment for Marcelino’s team. It’s really unexplainable why Valencia kicked off the new season in such a mediocre way.
These are our thoughts about La Liga’s clash between Real Sociedad and Valencia at the Estadio Municipal de Anoeta in San Sebastian. Will this be the first win for Valencia for the new season? Or maybe Real Sociedad will enjoy a third consecutive game without a loss?
