Betis are without a clean sheet in their last eight on the road but have netted in nine of their last 11 away.
Real Sociedad v Real Betis - Friday 19:45, Sky Sports Mix
Both these sides look set for mid-table finishes once again as Sociedad sit in 11th, while Betis are a point better off in 10th as their only defeats have come in tricky fixtures at Sevilla and Barcelona and Gus Poyet will no doubt be happy with how his side have started in their second season back in La Liga.
Sociedad’s home record since the start of last season is a mixed W8-D6-L8 and when hosting sides between 8th and 13th it’s a similar story as they’re W3-D2-L2. They kept only one clean sheet in these games but managed to net in all but one. Indeed, they’ve only managed one clean sheet in their last 10 at home and somewhat ironically that was against Barca.
Betis are also without a clean sheet in their last eight on the road but have netted in nine of their last 11 away and with that in mind we’re backing both teams to score . Betis’ record when travelling to sides between 8th and 13th was W2-D1-L2 last term and Sociedad look a little short to win at around 1.8, so we’re going to take them on and back Betis or Draw Double Chance.
