Real Sociedad is one of the hottest teams in Primera Division and by winning away at Getafe, they would virtually secure a Champions League berth for the first time in club history. Their opponents are mired in a lengthy losing streak and seem to have laid down their weapons, waiting for the season to end.
Match: Getafe vs Real Sociedad
Bet: Real Sociedad
Odds: Ladbrokes 2.10
The time is right for Real Sociedad to achieve the best result ever and after extending their invincibility to 15 games in a row, they only need to seize three more points. A victory in Madrid against Getafe would give them a five points cushion ahead of Valencia, not to mention the fact that they have the better head to head record. The remaining rounds are not particularly easy, with Real Sociedad facing Real Madrid in the second to last round and Sevilla before that.
In these two games they are guaranteed to start with the second chance and although they will give their opponents a run for their money, they can’t realistically expect to win. On the other hand, an offensive starting formation and an equally bold strategy should give them the upper hand against a complacent opponent. Getafe will be playing without five regulars, including their goalkeeper Moya and ever since he was sidelined with an injury that team struggled. The hosts conceded two goals in each of their three consecutive defeats while scoring only two of their own.
Don’t let the fact that Real Sociedad play away from home deceive you, because the visitors are justly credited with the first chance by Ladbrokes. As long as the odds stand about evens they are worth taking, and right now there is huge value in 2.10 for Real Sociedad to win the match.
