Real Sociedad vs Elche

The Line: Elche 8/5 Draw 21/10 Real Sociedad 19/10
La Liga action from Elche on Monday as the home side take on Real Sociedad with both teams sitting mid table in La Liga. David Moyes has done a terrific job since taking over Sociedad and has moved them away from the relegation zone and well up the table. Agirrexte, Canals and Vela are the key men for Sociedad up front. Real Sociedad have struggled to win away from home with only 1 win from fifteen games but they have also managed seven draws away from home which would indicate that they are also hard to beat on their travels.
Elche come into this game having lost three of their last five and sit only three points above the relegation zone and are in need of a win to move themselves away from that chasing pack. Elche face a tough task here though as Real Sociedad have put in some great performances recently and have an attack that poses real goalscoring threats especially with Vela and Agirrexte in the side. Elche are heavily dependent on Jonathas up front the Brazilian is far and away Elche's best attacker and with nine goals is top scorer.
This one is a tough one to call,we could make a case for both teams but I am going to take the draw here. I think the value play is the draw as at 21/10 and with the amound of draws Real Sociedad have had away from home this season it just looks the smart play.
