In the 30th round of LaLiga 2022/23, Real Sociedad will host Rayo Vallecano at home. In the previous round, Real Sociedad lost to Athletic Bilbao 0-2 on the road, while Rayo Vallecano won 2-1 against Osasuna at home.
Real Sociedad has lost two of their last three games with the same score of 0-2, both away from home. With only 3/9 points earned in these three rounds, they have been caught up by their competitors in the race for a top-four spot. Currently, they are still in fourth place, but only three points ahead of the fifth-placed Real Betis and four points ahead of Villarreal.
Rayo Vallecano ended their eight-game winless run in LaLiga with a win against Osasuna. They have 40 points and theoretically still have a chance to compete for a spot in the Europa League next season.
Real Sociedad is the stronger team and has a better chance of winning this game. With Rayo Vallecano's recent struggles in away games, Real Sociedad is expected to win with a clean sheet. The predicted score is Real Sociedad 2-0 Rayo Vallecano.
