    On Sunday afternoon, Real Sociedad host Real Betis at the Reale Arena, as both sides look to get back to winning ways after disappointing results of late in La Liga.

    Real Sociedad head into this clash on the back of two straight defeats in the Spanish top-flight against Sevilla and Getafe last time out. In fact, La Real have a really mixed recent record in La Liga of late, also losing at Athletic in late August.

    Despite their seemingly poor recent form, Imanol Alguacil’s remain in La Liga’s European spots. In fact, the team from San Sebastian are only five points behind leaders Real Madrid.

    La Real’s recent home record in La Liga is strong. In fact, until their recent surprise defeat by Getafe, they were on a run of four straight league wins at the Reale Arena. They had also scored at least two goals in all four home wins. They will fancy their chances of returning to winning ways against the inconsistent visitors.

    Real Betis have endured a mixed start to the Spanish top-flight, picking up just nine points from their first eight outings in La Liga.

    The visitors have won just once in their last five league outings, but have also suffered just one defeat in six La Liga games, which illustrates their inconsistencies of late. Last time out, the Andalusians drew 1-1 at home against Eibar.

    Although their recent La Liga games have not always been high-scoring, both teams have scored in seven of their last eight league matches.

    The visitors recent away form in La Liga is poor, as Betis have recorded just one win in their last nine matches on their travels. The main problem on their travels has been conceding too many goals, as they have conceded at least twice in six of their last eight matches on the road.

    Forebet predicts that Real Sociedad will bounce back from the recent defeats by recording a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
