Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Reale Seguros Stadium when Real Sociedad and Real Betis face each other in the La Liga round 20. La Real recorded a routine 2-0 win over Cordoba in the Copa del Rey last 32, with the team putting an end to their three-game winless run in all competitions. The Basques failed to win the previous four home games in La Liga, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against los Beticos.
The likes of Moya, Silva, Sola, and Sangalli are all out of contention with injuries for the hosts. Real Betis, on the other hand, are on a four-match winning run in all competitions. The Andalusians have been showing signs of improvement of late, and seeing that fit-again star Sergio Canales has found his goalscoring touch, we are positive that the visitors will find the net in Saturday’s clash. Taking everything into account, both teams to score betting option should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Willian José):
Well-travelled Brazilian international Willian Jose was born in Porto Calvo and made his first football steps at a local Clube de Regatas. It was at the age of 17 that he was snapped by Gremio Barueri where he made 26 league appearances and scored six goal in his first – and only – senior season at the club.
In 2011, Willian Jose moved to Deportivo Maldonado but his five-year stint with the Uruguay outfit was marked by no less than seven different loan spells, one of which was to La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid. Standing at 186cm tall, Willian Jose is a notable presence in the box. This powerful centre forward will use his physicality to hold up ball and bring his teammates into play.
The Brazilian international did well to make a name for himself in Spain by playing for Zaragoza and Las Palmas, respectively, before he sealed a permanent move to Real Sociedad in 2016. A member of both FIFA U-20 World Cup and South American Youth Championship winning sides with Brazil in 2011, Willian Jose has not been given a chance to prove his worth at the senior level with Selecao.
