Match preview and best betting tip:

This game has a great tendency to balance, since it puts on the field a competent Real Sociedad when it plays at home and a Real Valladolid that needs to add all three points. Even so, we imagine that the home team will dominate ball possession and create more real danger situations, however Valladolid should put their strong counterattacks in motion. That said and taking these factors into account, risking in favor of the “Plus 2 Goals” market is a good option.
