In a sentence: Getafe head to Real Sociedad this weekend in a mid-table clash that could be one of the less exciting games as part of the weekend football predictions.

Last time: Getafe won 2-1 in Madrid against Sociedad earlier this season, with Jorge Molina scoring a late winning penalty.

This time: Home advantage could be key here, as Sociedad are 13/20 to win, with Getafe at 9/2 to record back-to-back wins against them – a draw is 13/5.

You might remember: Sociedad have former Manchester United player Adnan Januzaj in their ranks, for those looking for some Premier League familiar faces in their La Liga preview.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Real Sociedad take on Getafe at the Anoeta in this La Liga clash

These two sides have an identical run of form heading into this clash, making football predictions difficult, as there is no clear favourite.

Playing in front of their own fans has been key for Sociedad this season, winning their last three home games by an aggregate score of 10-1. However, Getafe will be a stubborn opponent, but a home win still looks interesting at 13/20.

Sociedad winning at the Anoeta has been a firm suggestion as 2018’s football bet tips and predictions. However, they will not have it all their own way, and a draw at 13/5 looks to be a better football prediction this time.

La Liga predictions for mid-table battles have been particularly tough to call in recent weeks, with sides dropping points unexpectedly and relegation-threatened teams going against the odds. A draw looks to be a safe shout in this one, with neither side in real danger of being sucked into a relegation fight or pushing for a European spot before the end of the season.

Match Summary


Look out for:

17 goals for William Jose in 2017-18 has seen the Brazilian striker gain attention from across Europe for his displays with Sociedad.

After a fairly low-key 2016-17, he has really stepped it up this season, and he is a threat in the air and on the ground for the Basque side.

With two goals in his last three games he will be a marked man by Getafe, and he 4/1 is to score first this weekend.


We fancy:

A draw. Both sides look to be happy with their lot this season, particularly Getafe, who are accustomed to relegation battles rather than the comfort of mid-table.

Sociedad may be a little frustrated, but they have found it hard to balance European commitments with domestic ones.

A draw will edge both sides closer to the end of the season, and 1-1 is priced at 6/1 as part of your football score predictions.


It’s a long shot, but:

Molina and Angel have formed a good partnership for Getafe this season, scoring 18 La Liga goals in 2017-18.

Both were on target when these two sides met earlier this season, but Angel is in slightly better form currently, with three goals in his last five games.

He clearly likes playing against Sociedad, and he has done well to score the goals he has done this season – he is 9/1 to score first at the weekend.
