Las Palmas take on the visitors Real Sociedad in the round 3 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Friday, August 25th at Estadio de Gran Canaria (Las Palmas).
If we purely look at the match results, Las Palmas have started the new season in La Liga quite decently after their return. They have earned one point in two rounds, with a goal difference of just 1-2. And yes, I agree, the start has indeed been not too bad for the team. But is it worth overestimating Las Palmas? Unlikely. They managed a draw against Mallorca in a home match (1-1). However, the opponent is not the strongest, and in terms of xG, they were better (0.92 against 1.38). Moreover, in the first half, the yellow and blue side had the chance to score from a penalty, but they didn't convert. In the second round, Las Palmas lost to Valencia (0-1), who fought until the very end of the previous season to stay in La Liga.

Now, the team that has returned to La Liga is set to face Real Sociedad, who finished in the top 4 of the championship last season and qualified for the Champions League. Yes, several leaders of the white and blue team moved to other clubs, which will undoubtedly have an impact on both the gameplay and the results, at least in the beginning. However, the difference in class between Sociedad and Las Palmas remains evident and quite significant. The fact that Imanol Alguacil's players have not yet secured a victory in the early stages of the championship (draws against Girona and Celta) will only fuel the desire of the visiting players to beat the hosts in the upcoming match.
It's precisely due to Real Sociedad's lack of wins in the new La Liga season that bookmakers are offering such interesting odds for this match. I suggest taking advantage of this situation. Sooner or later, the white and blue team will win, so why not let it happen now? The opponent is not among the top teams. Looking at the head-to-head meetings, it's quite favorable for Sociedad - in the last four such encounters, they recorded three wins and one draw. Yes, that was a while ago. But whether Las Palmas have become stronger since then is yet to be determined. However, the white and blue team has definitely improved. I'm taking the W2 bet at an excellent odds higher than 2.0!
Prediction for the match: Real Sociedad to win.
