The latest match of Real Sociedad was against Valencia on Sunday, with the outcome being a 0:0 draw at home. The club is currently unbeaten in ten games, recording six draws and four wins in the process. It might sound strange, but playing at home has proved to be rather a disadvantage in Real Sociedad’s recent 10 meetings, as the visiting teams won on three occasions and the hosts achieved just one triumph for the period. Given the outcome in six of the previous ten meetings of the squad was a draw, it makes sense this has been the most common result in their latest matches. When we take a look at the last five encounters of the team, we see that zero ended with more than 2.5 goals, with two having the two involved teams scoring. Real Sociedad managed to keep three clean sheetsand failed to score in just one of those encounters. Goalkeepers had it relatively easy throughout the team’s recent five outings, as they had to pull the ball out of the nets just 8 times.
