Real Sociedad vs Getafe predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as La Real aim to extend their 100% home record.
Real Sociedad vs Getafe Preview
This game features a team that very nearly gatecrashed the top four last season and one that are being tipped to do just that this term. Real Sociedad did suffer a setback last time out as they were defeated by Sevilla but they’ve been very impressive at home so far and they’ll be hungry to keep up their winning start at the new-look Anoeta here against a Getafe side that hasn’t really got going in La Liga at least.
La Real were involved in the game of the weekend on match-day 7. They were on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline at Sevilla as Imanol’s men sank to just their second defeat of the season in Andalusia. They will be delighted to be in 5th though especially when you consider 5 of Sociedad’s 7 games so far have been away from home. In front of their own fans at a much improved Anoeta, they’ve scored 5 goals without conceding to see off Atleti and Alaves.
Getafe meanwhile haven’t been anyway near as impressive as they were last term in La Liga with a few defensive frailties surprisingly creeping in. They’ve only won once so far in La Liga and that was at home to relegation favourites Mallorca. However they have been impressive in the Europa League, winning their opening two group games including an excellent 2-1 win in Russia against Krasnodar on Thursday night.
They did rest a few players for that game with Angel rotating in up front and starring with two goals. However it would still have been a long trip and there may be a bit of fatigue in their camp with a short turnaround ahead of this trip to the Basque Country to take on an exciting Real Sociedad side.

Real Sociedad vs Getafe Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Real Sociedad
Sociedad really have been impressive this season with Martin Ødegaard a fitting winner of the player of the month award for September in La Liga. They appear to be getting a bit extra out of playing at a more compact stadium and in front of more fans too and they look capable of edging this with Getafe not yet hitting the heights of last season and perhaps suffering from a bit of fatigue following their long trip to Russia.
