With both of these teams showcasing their goal scoring prowess this season, this match could be one of the best games of the season so far.

Despite their goal scoring abilities, both of these teams also have their weaknesses and they will both look to take advantage of each other’s weaknesses.

With defender Diego Llorente suspended and several key players out injured, Real Sociedad are currently suffering a defensive crisis and that could see them vulnerable in this game.

They let in 3 goals in each of their last two games and they need to stop conceding that many goals if they want to stand any chance of finishing this season well.

Valencia have looked good defensively this season but their defensive line could be breached when they come up against Sociedad’s attacking line up in this game.

They scored 5 goals against Malaga in midweek and given Sociedad’s defensive struggles, we expect them to be confident of winning this game.

Valencia have lost their last 4 matches against Sociedad and they have lost 5 of their last 6 away matches against their host.
