RCD Espanyol is 1-1-2 SU on the season and are ranked 17th in the La Liga ladder. They head to this matchup coming off a victory over SD Eibar. On the other hand, Real Sociedad are the 7th ranked team in the Spanish Primera Division with a record of 2-1-1 SU on the season. Real Sociedad defeated Atletico Madrid 2-0 in their most recent match played and they are the soccer betting favorites to beat RCD Espanyol in this contest.

Head to head, these clubs have played in a total of 34 matches. Real Sociedad leads the series with 14 wins while RCD Espanyol has 10 victories and these teams have played to a draw in 10 other matches. Espanyol has won two out of the last three meetings between these teams, including a 2-0 win last May 18, 2019 in their most recent matchup.

Both these teams have been very competitive against each other and both have yet to really go off this season. Real Sociedad beat La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid in their last match played and I think they will carry the momentum of that victory to this contest. Espanyol also heads to this matchup fresh off a win over SD Eibar but overall, I think Real Sociedad has played better this season. Prediction: Real Sociedad
