Our football match prediction:
Despite producing a fine display in Saturday’s football game against Barcelona, Real Sociedad eventually suffered a 3-2 loss to the title holders at Camp Nou. La Real dropped to seventh place in the standings, but a win over Deportivo could see them regain their spot in top six. It is well known that the Basques are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they will record their ninth home win of the season. In their last home fixture in the national championship Real Sociedad recorded a routine 3-1 win over Sporting Gijon. The Galicians, on the other hand, suffered five defeats in previous six away games in the Spanish elite division and seeing that they are nine points clear of the relegation zone, the visitors will not be too disappointed should they happen to suffer yet another loss on the road.
