Real Sociedad vs RCD Espanyol Total Goals 2.5 (Over/Under)
Real Sociedad comes into this game after a recent 1-0 Europa League victory over Manchester United, with Brais Mendez’s penalty settling the game at Old Trafford.
Even though David Silva’s shot hit L. Martinez in the leg before bouncing into his arm, the decision to award the penalty kick was debatable; the Basque team has made an excellent start to their 2022–23 European season as a result.
Imanol Alguacil’s club has likewise enjoyed a solid start to the La Liga season with seven points from four games. They are presently listed eighth in the standings as a result. Real Sociedad defeated Cadiz 1-0 in their season-opening match before falling to Barca 4-1 at home in their following match.
However, the White and Blues picked up much-needed points versus Atletico Madrid in the competition last weekend before getting back on track to win at Elche on August 27. On their first season back in the top division, Espanyol ended 14th in La Liga. This season, they’ll be determined to avoid a scrap just at the bottom of the standings.
The Catalan team started the season with just one point after drawing against Celta Vigo on the opening night and losing back-to-back matches to Rayo Vallecano & Real Madrid. However, Martinez’s team will go into this game on the high of a spirit-boosting victory after winning against Athletic Bilbao 1-0 the last time out, thanks to a late goal from rookie M. Braithwaite.
Espanyol will think they have much more than enough talent to avoid being in a relegation fight, but they will need to better their away performance after just winning once in the league on the road last season and earning nine points. The White & Blues only lost four games at home in 2021–22, and when Sevilla visited in February, the score was tied 1–1 to split the points.
