Can Getafe breach Sociedad's defence?
<div><h2>Real Sociedad vs Getafe</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Sunday, October 6 at Reale Arena</strong></a></p><p>Real Sociedad have only failed to score once in seven games so far this season, and they can usually be relied upon to provide great entertainment. They lost 3-2 away at Sevilla last time out and that left them fifth in the table, level on points with Barcelona. Getafe have scored in five of seven games, and the only teams to shut them out have been title chasing Barca and Atletico Madrid. Getafe are also yet to keep a clean sheet this season. We should therefore be in for an exciting clash between two teams that like to attack and never really look too convincing at the back.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Real Sociedad boast a wealth of creative talent. Martin Odegaard has excelled during his loan spell from Real Madrid, while Mikel Oryazabal is also really dangerous and Willian Jose is a good striker. Adnan Januzaj also offers plenty of pace and trickery going forwards, and Alexander Isak and Portu can make things happen, so manager Imanol Alguacil has plenty of options in attack.</p><p><a href=";BCTID=1536301892" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Getafe were the surprise package of the 2018/19 season as they finished fifth in La Liga, but they have not quite hit those heights this time around. It is always difficult for clubs with small squads to balance the Europa League with domestic commitments, and that has proved to be the case for Getafe. Yet they are growing into this season, and they will fancy their chances of hurting Real Sociedad in this game. They drew 3-3 at Valencia in their last away game, and Jaime Mata, Angel Rodriguez and Jorge Molina have all been dangerous in attack.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Real Sociedad have won both of their home games to nil so far this season. They beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 and Alaves 3-0, so they have turned the Reale Arena into a real fortress. For that reason, you can find attractive odds on both teams scoring in this game. It seems risky, when you consider Real Sociedad’s defensive prowess at home, but Getafe have very dangerous forwards and they have scored against every team apart from Barca and Atletico this season. It finished 2-1 to Sociedad when they met at Reale Arena last season, and we could be in for a similar result on Sunday.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Paddy Power">Both teams to score at 2.20 (6/5) with Paddy Power</a></strong></p></div>
