Real Sociedad – Rayo Vallecano SOCCER PICKS
Real Sociedad is chasing European football this season and should not drop too many stings, especially in their own Anoeta. On Tuesday evening low-flyer Rayo Vallecano visits.
The season is still very early, but after a few meager years Real Sociedad might well become one of the revelations of this edition. The most important summer acquisition is not a player for a change, but trainer Asier Garitano. Last season, the Basques often played a bit naive and brash, which, in addition to a lot of spectacles, also resulted in a lot of loss. Garitano puts the accent a bit more on the rear, so the blue whites are now much more in balance. Last weekend, the team from San Sebastian won 0-1 at doctoral candidate Huesca, which meant the second competition victory of the new season.
On Tuesday evening, Real Sociedad will compete with another doctoral student in the recently renovated Anoeta: Rayo Vallecano. The Basques obviously go for the three points again, but have to miss quite a few players. Juanmi Jimenez and Theo Hernandez are suspended, while Diego Llorente and Adnan Januzaj are among the rags. Yet Garitano can still bring a solid team to the leg.
Rayo Vallecano returned to La Liga this summer, but with three defeats from four games, the Madrid team must still find their turn at the highest level.
The poison cup seems not empty for the time being, because last weekend the red-whites went down against Alaves with no less than 1-5. Trainer Michel was furious: “After the third goal, we left it running, that’s impossible!” Deep striker Raul de Tomas called for solidarity: “We have to go through this together. On Tuesday evening we get a new chance to turn the tide. ”
