Football best betting tips for today
Both Deportivo Alaves and Real Sociedad will look for their first win since the COVID-19 pandemic on Thursday night. These two teams will face each other at the Mendizorroza in a fixture from the 29th round of La Liga. Let’s preview this game in our football best betting tips for today.
Deportivo Alaves kicked off their season again with a defeat. On Saturday Asier Garitano’s team paid a visit to Espanyol in Catalunya, but got beaten with 0-2. Here’s the moment to remind you that Alaves’ goalkeeper Pacheco recieved a red card after just 19 minutes of playing. More or less this was the moment which decided the game in Espanyol’s favour.
In the second half Garitano tried to change what’s happening on the pitch, but the inclusion of Roberto Jimenez, Pere Pons, Luis Roja and Pina didn’t lead to a change.
Because of this defeat Deportivo Alaves fell to 15th place in La Liga. They are still on a decent distance above the relegation zone, but they must step up their game in the remaining rounds.
Real Sociedad won only a point during their home game with Osasuna few days ago. The Basques were aiming to win and strenghten their position in the race for the Champions League, but the match ended with a 1-1 draw. Mikel Oyarzabal’s goal in the 61th minute was not enough for La Real in order to defeat the tough Pamplonians.
At this moment Real Sociedad remains just one point ahead of the 5th Getafe and the 6th Atletico Madrid. This means that every point Real Sociedad wins now is going to be crucial for the club.
In our football best betting tips we believe that Real Sociedad’s advantage over Deportivo Alaves is not that big that it seems. La Real didn’t show their killer instinct in the previous game, so now they must do it away from home. It won’t be easy.
