Real Sociedad is hosting Getafe at Reale Arena in round 5 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Real Sociedad hasn’t lost any of their last 5 games, until a few days ago when they played against Valencia at home. Sociedad was the dominant team in this match with 65% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 83% of accurate passes. Sociedad was playing well, but they haven’t created any good chances, and they conceded a goal in the 76th minute. Valencia was defending well in this match, and Real Sociedad has lost this game 0-1. With 5 points, 4 scored goals, and 2 conceded goals, Sociedad is now in 6th place in the standings. Roberto Lopez is the leading goalscorer for Sociedad with 2 goals, while Portu and Januzaj added 1 goal each. Mikel Merino has added 2 assists. Sangalli, Illarramendi, Merquelanz, Sola, and Guridi are all injured, and they will not play in this game. This is the last game for Sociedad before the international break, and the opponent is perfect for them. Real Sociedad will also play in the Europa League this season, and once that starts, we will see if Sociedad can handle fighting on two fronts.
Getafe has played great soccer so far this season, but their opponents weren’t exactly the best teams in LaLiga. In their first three games of the season, Getafe has 2 wins and 1 draw, alongside 4 scored goals and 0 conceded goals. With 7 points, Getafe is at the top of the standings at the moment. In their latest LaLiga match against Betis at home, Getafe has had only 30% of ball possession, but 4 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 2 big chances created, and low 58% of the correct passes. Despite being the weaker team in this match, Getafe was able to score 3 unanswered goals in the first half, and in the end, Getafe has won this match 3-0. Rodriguez is the leading goalscorer for Getafe with 2 goals, while Cucurella and Mata added 1 goal each. Hernandez has added 2 assists, while Maksimovic and Nyom added 1 assist each. There are no reported injuries in Getafe as of right now, but Ndiaye is still questionable for this match. Getafe was playing in the Europa League last season, and they have done well, but they will not be playing in the Europa League this season as they ended in 8th place last season. So far, Getafe is doing really well, especially on the defensive end, and if they can keep it up for a little while longer, Getafe will have a good chance of staying in the Europa League spot.
The trends are on Getafe’s side in this matchup, while Sociedad hasn’t won any of their last 5 home games. These are the team of the equal quality, and when Sociedad was playing at home in the past, we usually saw at least 2 goals. I believe that Sociedad is good enough to go through Getafe’s defense, while Getafe can certainly score a goal against Real Sociedad.
