Real Sociedad and Valencia face at Reale Arena, in a match for the 4 th round of the La Liga. At this stadium, the head ‑ to ‑ head history favors the home team, since they have a record of 3 wins and 2 losses in the last 5 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 22‑02‑2020, in a match for the La Liga, Real Sociedad won by (3‑0). The goals of the match were scored by Nacho Monreal (45 '), A. Januzaj (48') and Mikel Merino (12 ') for Real Sociedad. The home advantage may play an important role in this match, since Valencia presents significant differences between home and away results.

In the last match, they have won an away match against Elche by (0‑3).

Real Sociedad has won 3, drawn 4 and lost 3 of their last 10 home matches for all competitions. His attack has scored regularly, since he managed to finish in 7 of the last 10 games.

Real Sociedad enters this game motivated after a victory, by 0-3, in the trip to the field of Elche, adding in this way the third consecutive meeting without losing in La Liga: the goals of the team were signed by Adnan Januzaj, Portu and Roberto López. In this match against Valencia, coach Imanol Alguacil is expected to play in 4-3-3 favoring defensive organization and counterattacks by the flanks: Portu and Oyarzabal are very fast and strong on the counterattack. On the other hand, David Silva is the great organizer of the offensive process, and this player has great technical quality and vision of the game. For this game the coach cannot count on Igor Zubeldia, Zaldua, Guridi, Merquelanz, Illarramendi and Sangalli, players who are recovering from injury.


Valencia

The visiting team is currently in 4th place, with 4 points won, after 1 victory, 1 draw and 1 defeat. In the penultimate match, they lost away to Celta de Vigo by (2‑1). In the last match, they tied at home for Huesca by (1‑1). This is a team affected by the home factor, which is stronger when they play with the support of their fans, since in the last 30 games they have recorded 1 win, 4 draws and 10 losses as a visitor, with a total of 7 goals scored and 25 conceded. At home, he won 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses, with a total of 27 goals scored and 16 conceded. In the last 10 away matches Valencia drew 3 and lost 7.

Valencia's team enters this game with a 1-1 draw against Huesca, thus adding the second consecutive game without winning in this competition: Wass scored the only goal of the team. Note that the visitors won only the first game against Levante. In this trip to the field of Real Sociedad, the coach Javi Gracia should adopt a tactical system similar to the last game, that is, the 4-4-2, privileging the defensive organization and counterattacks by the flanks. The midfielder Uros Racic is the main game organizer, and this owner has a great pass quality and vision of the game. Mazi Gómez is one of Valencia's top scorers with 2 goals scored.
