Almeria - Real Sociedad Betting Preview: Why both sides can get on the scoresheet

Our man in Spain, Phil Kitromilides, believes these two attack-minded sides will both find the back of the net tonight
Since recording their biggest result of the season defeating Atletico Madrid 2-0 at the start of February, Almeria have been on a slump drawing one and losing four of their last five league matches.

Monday night's encounter could also prove to be a tricky one for the Andalusians as they host a Real Sociedad side who may be a little out of form but still remain one of the most dangerous sides in the division.

Bet365 price a home win at 12/5 (3.40) while La Real can be backed at 11/10 (2.10) to record their fifth away triumph of the season. The draw can be backed at 5/2 (3.50).

With varying degrees of success both these sides have shown themselves to be capable of playing attractive, expansive football.

Neither could be classified as a defensive team and both will fancy their chances of scoring this evening.

Backing goals at both ends therefore at 8/11 (1.72) looks like a decent option particularly given their recent form.

This selection has paid out in Almeria's last three games, with Francisco's side losing each of those fixtures yet still managing to get on the scoresheet.

That could well be the outcome again this evening against the Basques who have scored in 17 of their last 20 La Liga games, and while the price on both teams to score is not the biggest, the likelihood of it paying out makes it difficult to ignore.

Both teams to score at 8/11 (1.72) for 3.0pts with bet365
