Real Sociedad vs Espanyol Prediction 18 September 2022

Real Sociedad take on the visitors Espanyol in the round 6 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, September 18th Reale Arena (San Sebastian).

Real Sociedad have high ambition but doesn't always prove it on the pitch. "Churri Urdin" under the current mentor, Imanol Alguasil, were able to finally win the trophy. Yes, this is only the country's cup, and it was postponed from 2020 to 2021 - but still, this has been expected for a quarter of a century. The fans also hope to see their team again in the Champions League. But so far, they lacks consistency. On the one hand, it was possible to take a draw with Atletico and even defeat Manchester United, and on the road. On the other hand, as part of the LaLiga, the ambitious team managed to lose not only to Barcelona (with a devastating result at home, 1-4), but also to Getafe, which had never won a head-to-head before. Yes, and the calendar is tight, only on Thursday there was a Europa League match, albeit a home match, with Omonia.

Espanyol haven't been impressive this season yet. The "Parrots" not so long ago were forced to spend a season in the Segunda. Returning from there, the team, on the one hand, proved to be worthy, gaining 42 points and finishing in 14th place, without the threat of a new relegation. But, on the other hand, it seems that European Cup ambitions have not been forgotten here. Therefore, back in May, they called Diego Martinez Penas, who was trying to achieve this as the head of a modest Granada. The specialist started in a new place, frankly speaking, lower than expected. So far, his new wards have won only 1 match in La Liga out of 5 held - against Athletic. It also turned out to get a draw with Celta on the road being down 0-2. But at home, so far, it has not been possible to catch even once for a point: 0-2 with Rayo Vallecano, 1-3 with Real Madrid, 2-3 with Sevilla. With the latter, however, they almost recouped from 0-3 in the 2nd half.

Espanyol has won only once in the last 5 meetings, with 4 defeats. In addition, the hosting side has already won four times in this pair at home. Real Sociedad is by far the pair's favorite, but not without flaws, while Espanyol is good on the road this season. An interesting option would be "both teams to score".

Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
