Our football match prediction:
Deportivo Alaves and Real Sociedad face each other in a small Basque derby at Estadio de Mendizorroza. Alaves desperately needed a win against Levante in their last league match and they managed to get one. Giovanni de Biasi’s en recorded their first win of the season on Matchday 7, with the team putting an end to their six-game losing run in La Liga and, no doubt, the victory gave them a confidence boost. Alaves aim to escape the relegation zone, but they should be happy with one point from Saturday’s football match against Real Sociedad. La Real played out a thrilling 4-4 draw with Real Betis in San Sebastian and it has to be noted that they are on a five-game winless run in all competitions. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in the local derby.
