Competition: Spanish La Liga
Market: Real Sociedad to win against Espanyol
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365
Real Sociedad welcome Espanyol to Anoeta in the Spanish La Liga on Friday evening, and are favourites to come out on top with their brighter start to the new season, coupled with Espanyol’s woeful away form in the last 12 months.
Home side Sociedad are currently ninth in the Spanish La Liga with three points from a possible six, having lost their opener to Real Madrid before beating Osasuna. They’re coming off the back of a good last season, finishing in the top-half and thrashed Espanyol in their most recent meeting 5-0.
As for the visitors, Espanyol are 14th in the table with just a point to their name from their first two games. They lost their opener 6-4 to Sevilla, before drawing against Malaga 2-2. Espanyol’s defence has taken a battering early into the new season, and their away record in 2016 is cause for concern.
The visitors have won just once on the road this year, suffering seven away defeats in 2016, and Bet 365 are giving odds of 10/11 for Real Sociedad to take advantage at Anoeta. Victory for the hosts could see them go into the weekend in the top-six depending on other results.
