Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Elche take on Real Sociedad at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero on their return to La Liga. Los Franjiverdes are back to the Spanish top flight following a five-year absence, and, one thing is for sure, they are going to leave their hearts on the field in the season opener. Latest signing Raul Guti, who joined the club for Zaragoza, is likely to make his Elche debut against Real Sociedad.
The Basques, on the other hand, did well to hold Real Madrid to a goalless draw in San Sebastian at the weekend, but they have yet to record their first win of the season. Seeing that the newcomers will be under big pressure in Saturday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on Real Sociedad. Experienced attacker Willian Jose should return to contention for the visitors after he was quarantined for the Real Madrid showdown.
