Real Sociedad and Real Mallorca meet for the fourth and final time this season, as they play the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final (Tuesday Feb 27th). The pair drew 0-0 in the first encounter, leaving the visitors on the back foot given their terrible record in San Sebastian.

Team news

Real Sociedad were without Alvaro Odriozola, Kieran Tierney and Aihen Munoz at the weekend and the trio are each expected to miss out here.

Antonio Raillo was suspended for the first leg and then picked up another red card in the league match between these two earlier this month. However, having served both bans he is expected to return, although fellow defender Pablo Maffeo is expected to miss out through injury.

Real Sociedad to win to nil @ 11/10

 This tie is finely poised after their stalemate in the first encounter, while neither side heads into the clash looking all that convincing. Real Sociedad did win 2-1 when these two sides met a couple of weeks ago, but they edged that against a Mallorca side who had two defenders sent off.

This clash should be much tighter, especially given that it starts 0-0 on aggregate with a cup final spot on the line.

The hosts need to build up some confidence, having lost three of their last four games. However, they can build upon an impressive record against Mallorca. Sociedad have won each of their last 12 home meetings with their semi-final opponents, while they’ve won nine of the last 11 head-to-head clashes overall.

A low-scoring game should be on the cards, especially as Mallorca have struggled in their league trips to top sides. They’ve faced six of La Liga’s top seven on the road, losing all six of those matches and scoring in just one.

The visitors are on a run of nine successive defeats to nil in visits to Real Sociedad, so back them home side to win a low-scoring game, with a win to nil for the hosts priced at 11/10.

Real Sociedad to win 1-0 @ 100/30

This clash is expected to be a low-scoring affair and it could be just a single goal which sends the hosts to the Copa del Rey final. After all, they are coming off a string of meetings with Mallorca edged by one goal.

Sociedad have won by a one-goal margin in five of their previous six wins against Mallorca. The last four meetings between the pair in San Sebastian have each finished 1-0 to the home side. That long streak of slender wins should continue on Tuesday, with the visitors losing by one goal in seven of their 10 La Liga defeats this season.

Match Odds

The home side are favourites at 4/7 to get the win in 90 minutes, with Mallorca priced at 5/1 and the draw rated a 9/4 chance.

Goals have tended to be scarce in this fixture and it is 11/8 that under 1.5 goals are scored in 90 minutes. Sociedad are 11/10 to win nil, while the visitors are priced at 8/1 in the same market.
