Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After failing to spoil Real Madrid’s party at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Real Sociedad will look to return to winning ways in La Liga when they take on Getafe on Matchday 6. La Real outplayed Granada 5-3 in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Sunday’s encounter. Experienced midfielder David Silva remains in the recovery room alongside Martin Merquelanz, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Los Azulones, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-2 win over Osasuna, but given their difficulties on the road, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Real Sociedad, who are once again eyeing a spot in the Champions League. Both Luis Milla and Enes Unal are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the visiting team ahead of the trip to San Sebastian.
Highlighted Player (Mikel Oyarzabal):
Intelligence is not an attribute you will find in Mikel Oyarzabal’s stats with Real Sociedad but this tricky winger is a highly knowledgeable winger who will use both brain and feet while playing. For a player born in Eibar, who made his first steps in his hometown club, it was always going to be a choice between Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad for Oyarzabal.
La Real saw their chance and grabbed this gem of a player at a young age, helping him develop into a proper professional throughout their youth ranks. Mikel Oyarzabal has spent the entirety of his senior career with the Basque behemoths where he’d use his ability to fill in a number of positions up top much to his own benefit.
Oyarzabal’s positioning and movement are work of a tactical genius, whereas it is his nous to find details to exploit that best define him as a player. Having come through the youth categories of the Spanish national team, Oyarzabal also has a senior cap next to his name. It was in 2016 that he also represented the Basque region, scoring on his debut to cap a 3-1 win over Tunisia.
