Nine places but just seven points separate these two clubs after an unfamiliar start to the La Liga season which has seen no truly dominant side emerge whilst surprise package Alaves currently occupy second position.

The hosts in this match Real Sociedad have endured a mixed start to the season with three wins, three draws and four losses on their record so far.

Visitors Sevilla sit third in the table after a promising start to their campaign. Their underlying statistics support their high position as they have recorded the second highest expected goals total and they remain third in on the expected points table. The Sevillanos are just two points behind leaders Barcelona.

Similarly, Real Sociedad are around where they should be in the table given their performances. The club have yet to win at home which could be a problem if not corrected as the season progresses. Last season’s eleventh place finished was supported by La Liga’s eighth best home record.

The small sample available here should be considered before writing off Sociedad’s home advantage however. They have played just four games at home and one was against reigning champions Barcelona.

Sociedad’s poor home record may be set to continue for now though. Sevilla enter this match having won five of their last six La Liga matches with a loss away to Barcelona their only defeat during that run.

The visitor’s attack has looked strong, scoring 22 goals in their first ten league games as well as scoring at a high rate in the Europa League. This will be a tough test for Sociedad.

Real Sociedad vs. Sevilla: Where is the value?

Sevilla have registered 2.06 expected goals per game so far and have scored three or more goals in half of their matches. The away side to score over 1.5 goals is available at 2.220* and could offer value if the teams play to form.

In Andre Silva, Wissam Ben Yedder and Pablo Sarabia the away team possess three of the top scorers in La Liga. This could be too much to contain for a Sociedad side who have started the season unconvincingly.

The Sevilla -0.25 handicap at 2.220* could be attractive to bettors due to Sevilla’s superior attacking talent combined with Real Sociedad’s weak results and underlying statistics this season.
