Real Sociedad vs Valencia Match Preview and Team News
Sociedad started the La Liga season in a draw, and in the second round, they split the points with Real Madrid. On Saturday, they beat Elche 3:0, thanks to goals scored by Portu, Januzaj, and Lopez. From the beginning, they dictated the pace and deservedly reached three points. The Basques finished sixth in La Liga last season, which was enough for the place in the Europa League group stage. Alexander Isak is a great player, many teams are interested in this guy, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. Portu plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Sociedad still has a number of injury concerns with Asier Illarramendi, Luca Sangalli, Martin Merquelanz, Joseba Zaldua, and Igor Zubeldia all expected to miss out through injury.
Valencia, meanwhile, started the season with a 4-2 victory over Levante at Mestalla, losing to Celta 2-1 and disappointing their fans on Saturday with a draw with Huesca. The stats tell the story, and Valencia has been scored against in 5 of their last six matches, seeing opposing sides hit seven goals in all. Defensively, Los Che seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. We will see if that trend will be continued here. Goncalo Guedes is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. PSG easily gave up this guy who is the future of Portuguese football. Midfielder Uros Racic has found the right role in the team, he is moving great, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Mikel Merino has excellent control of the ball, and he can play in several positions. Maximiliano Gomez is the best player of the team, last season he scored ten goals, and he is doing great in the penalty area. As for Valencia, Gabriel Paulista and Eliaquim Mangala will not play in this match due to injury, and Hugo Guillamon will keep his place in defense.
