It’s been a solid start for Real Sociedad, who claimed a point at draw specialists Real Valladolid and a point against champions Real Madrid before beating Elche 3-0 at the weekend.
The hosts have laid a solid foundation for the campaign, while their goal glut at the weekend should be followed up with a win over Valencia.
The visitors come into this one having conceded five times in their first three games of the season.
The visitors lost six of their seven away trips since the restart, conceding at least twice in four of them.
Last term Sociedad thumped Valencia 3-0 here.
Valencia have conceded five times in their opening three games. The visitors have lost six of their last seven on the road. Real Sociedad averaged 1.74 goals per game at home last season.

Getafe have returned to action in La Liga with consecutive clean sheets, but will they extend that run against Real Betis? The visitors were involved in a thriller at the weekend, but our predictions back a less eventful clash here.
All of Getafe’s home defeats last term came against sides who finished fifth or higher.
Outside of that, they won eight of 14 home matches at their own ground. That included a 1-0 win over Real Betis, part of the visitors’ awful away record.
Betis lost 11 of their 19 away matches last season. All 11 of those defeats came in their 13 clashes with the sides placed 13th or higher. While the visitors have already won at struggling Alaves, before that they had lost six in seven trips.
Getafe’s five home losses last season came against the top five, other wise they won eight and drew six. Real Betis lost 11 of last season’s 19 away league trips. The visitors lost 11 of their trips to the top 13 last term.
