Valladolid vs Real Sociedad Prediction & Betting tips
The second game on football Sunday in the first round of La Liga will be between Real Valladolid and Real Sociedad. It promises to be an interesting duel between two teams that made great moves on the summer transfer market.
Last season actually ran smoothly for the club of owner Ronaldo (Luís Nazário de Lima), despite the fact that the Purple & White formation opened the new year with only one victory from the first six matches. A good autumn followed and also around the winter break the men of trainer Sergio González were able to gather much needed points. After the corona break, La Pucela managed to play it safe with three wins, eventually Real Valladolid even ended up high in the right row.
The Achilles’ heel of this team was, just like a season earlier, especially in the forefront. Partly as a result of outgoing transfers in the winter months, the flush in the attacking line became very thin and that was clearly noticeable in the goal production. After the two relegation contenders, Real Valladolid was the least scoring La Liga team and so Ronaldo went looking for offensive reinforcements this summer. And they came. The top scorer of the Austrian Bundesliga was attracted with Shon Weissman and Eibar tastemaker Fabian Orellana is also wearing the purple and white jersey this season.
We can safely say that Real Sociedad was one of the teams that put the most attractive football on the mat last season. Especially for the corona stop, many opponents were sent from pillar to post and with eleven games to play, the Basques were on a collision course. However, the health crisis could not have come at a worse time for the Txuri-urdin, as it seemed that in the months without football the team was losing their chemistry. Only two more games were won in the last phase of the season and although the club would have signed for a Europa League ticket prior to the season, it was a bit of a pain that the Champions League was not made.
In the summer, the blues and whites saw one of the most important players leave, as Martin Odegaard returned to Real Madrid. However, the Basques were not put off and stunted last month by putting on none other than David Silva. The star has had a long season and is also not the youngest anymore, so it is still a matter of coffee to see if the 34-year-old Spaniard will already make his first minutes this month. Trainer Imanol Alguacil will have to puzzle a lot this weekend, many basic forces are not fit enough to take action and so there will be a refined B-team at the kick-off on Sunday.
