Bet of the day: Sociedad to sink Valencia and over 1.5 goals in game

Coral’s bet of the day
- Real Sociedad have lost just one of their last nine with Valencia
- The Bats are sat two La Liga places behind the Royals in 11th
- In the previous seven fixtures meetings over 1.5 goals have been scored in six
Real Sociedad 9/2 to win and over 1.5 goals in match (max stake £20)
It’s the last La Liga matchweek, with Friday featuring big Spanish names Valencia and Real Sociedad’s final fixture of the season, which is set to be a spectacle.
So, Coral head to the continent for bet of the day as the Bats host the Royals at the Mestalla, with Basque side Sociedad priced at a sensational 9/2 (max stake £20) to defeat Valencia and over 1.5 goals to occur in the game.
Read on to find out why the Royals’ record against ex-Gary Neville managed club Los Che makes this a marvellous bet not to be missed…
Sociedad superb in scuffles with Valencia
With just two league places and one point between these pair of Spanish favourites, and the possibility for either to still finish as high as eight, with a Europa League place potentially still up for grabs thanks to Sevilla’s exploits, expect this to be an explosive encounter.
San Sebastian side Sociedad have gotten the better of the Bats in many of their recent meetings, making this a real banana skin skirmish, especially after Valencia’s sub-par season which could see them end out of the top 10.
The Royals’ record against Los Che makes for some viewing, as they have lost just one of their previous nine when vying for points with Valencia, and have triumphed in three of their past four trips to the Mestalla.
Basque Country club Sociedad, bossed by Eusebio Sacristan since David Moyes’ departure, ran out as 2-0 victors versus Valencia in the reverse this term and, in recent seasons, managing to outscore their opponents frequently with a few bizarre scorelines to boot.
Speaking of strikes, there has been over 1.5 goals in six of the last seven wrangles between these two Spanish sides with 23 notched across those aforementioned matches.
So, punters should pounce on that tremendous 9/2 price (max stake £20) for a Real Sociedad triumph and over 1.5 goals in the match again!
