Match Preview: Real Sociedad Vs Granada Predictions, Team News & H2h
It’s usually hard to beat Real Sociedad at Anoeta; Only Valencia can beat them there this season.
Granada is perfect on the road, but the fatigue of the trips to Cyprus will definitely be a factor. Willian Jose is in good form for Sociedad and can get on the scoresheet in this tough battle which Real Sociedad won by a narrow margin.
