Granada vs Real Sociedad predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as the new boys aim to keep their stunning start to the season up.
Granada vs Real Sociedad Preview
The final game this weekend in La Liga comes from Andalusia where Granada play host to Real Sociedad. Granada were knocked off top spot in midweek and it’ll be interesting to see what kind of response they have here against a Real Sociedad side that was also defeated in disappointing fashion during the week.
Granada were certainly due a bad result or two after an incredible start to the season which saw them climb to the very summit of La Liga with their impressive win over Real Betis last weekend. They had chances to get something from their trip to Getafe on Thursday too but ultimately succumbed to a 3-1 loss. They’ll be hoping a return to the comforts of the Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes will bring an immediate response although the suspension of Roberto Soldado is a blow for the hosts.
Real Sociedad have also been magnificent at times this season but they are a young side and with that some degree of inconsistency is perhaps inevitable. A 2-1 home loss to Levante was perhaps the shock result of the midweek action but they can take confidence from what is La Liga’s joint best away record – a return of 10 points from 6 games on their travels so far this term.
Granada have reeled off four straight home wins though since losing to Sevilla in their opening home game. Only Real Madrid and Barcelona can better their average of 2.4 points per home game but this will be a real test of just how good they are against a Real Sociedad side that has shown itself to be capable of cutting open even the league’s meanest defences.
Granada vs Real Sociedad Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-2 Draw
This promises to be a really good game as La Real will travel believing they can win it but it’s sure to be a good atmosphere again with these Granada fans having scarcely ever known it so good. That combined with that surprise defeat in the week will make this something of a test of character for this young Sociedad side and it could go either way but we’re going for an open game and a score draw.
