Real Sociedad v Deportivo Alaves - Saturday 17:30, Sky Sports 3
Sociedad continue to enjoy life after David Moyes as they’re 10th in La Liga, having ended up in 9th last term following his sacking when they were struggling down in 16th. Promoted Alaves, meanwhile, have had an excellent start to their first La Liga campaign since 2005/06 as they’re up in 9th and have lost just twice so far.
Sociedad have won their last two at home and Real are the only side to beat them at the Anoeta Stadium so far. Indeed, their home record under Sacristan is an impressive W9-D4-L5, with three of those defeats coming against Real and Villarreal. As a result they look a fair price to make it three home wins in a row at 1.7.
However, since Alaves have managed to score in all four of their road games, including against Atletico, Sevilla and in that remarkable victory at the Nou Camp, we’re going to back Sociedad to Win and Both Teams to Score at 4.5, particularly since Sacristan’s men have kept just two clean sheets this season and only one in their last seven at home.
