Real Sociedad are still in the race for a Top 4 finish and a participation in the Champions League. Right now the Basques are 6th in the table with 40 points, but being just 3 points behind the 4th Sevilla. The race for the Champions League is still wide open, so La Real are still in it.

Lately Real Sociedad started to improve their form again, winning three of their last four matches. Last week the Basques showed their strenght when they hosted Valencia, crushing Los Che with 3-0 at the Reale Arena. Mikel Merino and Nacho Monreal scored in the first half, while Adnan Januzaj finished the visitors with a third goal in the beginning of the second half.

Real Valladolid are 15th in La Liga with 29 points and a record of 6 wins, 11 draws and 8 losses. More or less right now they are feeling safe for their future in the league, but some more points will help them to be in an even more secured position.

Last week Valladolid also celebrated a win. Sergio’s team hosted the struggling Espanyol at the Jose Zorrilla and scored two late goals for a 2-1 win. Sandro Ramirez opened the score for the hosts in the 77th minute, while Sergi Guardiola made it 2-0 in the 83th minute. The fact that Real Valladolid conceded a late goal in the 93th minute didn’t hurt them much.

Antonito is the only player missing in Real Valladolid’s squad, while Asier Illarramendi won’t be able to feature for the Basques.

These are the La Liga predictions for the match between Real Sociedad and Real Valladolid on Friday. Good luck!
