Live on Skysports 4: Sat 19.00 & 21.00: Real Sociedad look like a sure thing (23/20, 888sport) as they take on Racing Santander.
Real Sociedad have won three of their four home matches in La Liga this term and their only defeat at the Estadio Anoeta came against league leaders Real Madrid. This weekend they host the team directly below them, Racing Santander and the respective league positions of the pair mean that bookies offer odds-against quotes for a home win.
This is great news for punters considering Santander are winless on the road and have only managed two away goals. Take the Erreala then at a tasty 23/20 with 888Sport to come out on top and if feeling a little brave consider Ladbrokes’ 5/2 for them to win ‘to nil’.
Like Sociedad, Espanyol are a tough opponent on their own patch and indeed the Catalan outfit have won all four of their matches at the Estadi Cornellà-El Prat. They should therefore make short work of struggling Malaga, despite the fact that Manuel Pellegrini’s men are stronger on their travels and the hosts can be backed at an enticing 19/20 (Stan James) to make it five out of five on home soil.
