Betting tips and match preview | La Liga Primera

Valencia welcome Real Sociedad to the Estadio Mestalla in a match that is crucial for both sides as they battle to finish in the top ten of the La Liga table.

Valencia come into this match in poor form ahead of this crucial La Liga match and they will be looking to better their recent results as they need a win from their final matches to stand any chance of a top ten finish and even that might not be enough.

They have lost their last two matches against Real Madrid in a five goal thriller and prior to that a 2-0 loss to Villarreal. Prior to those defeats against two of the top four sides they had been on an excellent run and were unbeaten in their last four matches and were on a run of three successive wins.

Another loss will mean they end the season on a poor note having lost three successive matches and given they have already endured a poor season overall they will be looking to avoid another defeat.

A win will all but secure them a top ten finish and they could finish as high as 8th depending on the results for those sides around them.

Valencia have won just 11 of their 37 matches this season and one more win is the minimum target for them. They will be looking for victory number 12 when they face off on Friday evening and they will also be looking for their 17th win in 40 matches against Sociedad.
