Levante v Real Sociedad Betting: Visitors' goalscoring prowess to pay dividends in first period

Both sides have begun the new season positively, but we think the statistics point to the visitors netting in the first half of Thursday night's clash

Real Sociedad's flying start to the season was halted on Sunday evening by Real Madrid, with the Basques dropping their first points of the campaign against the champions.

It finished 3-1 to Zinedine Zidane's men at the weekend, a result which brought to an end La Real's run of four successive wins in all competitions.

Thursday evening sees the Basque outfit visit the Ciudad de Valencia stadium to take on a Levante side who remain unbeaten, with six points from their first four matches. Los Granotas won their opening match of the season, before recording three consecutive draws including an eye-catching point at the Bernabeu, and Juan Muniz's men have made so far an extremely positive return to the top flight.

Marathonbet price a second win of the season for Levante at 2/1 (3.00), while La Real are offered at 38/25 (2.52) and the draw can be backed at 7/2 (3.50)

Real Sociedad's start to the season has been characterised by their efficiency in front of goal, and even during a poor performance against Madrid on Sunday night they managed to find the back of the net.

Heading into this round of midweek matches, Eusebio Sacristan's side were the joint-top scorers in the division with Barcelona after 11 goals in their opening four games.

La Real also ended the previous campaign in strong scoring form, meaning the San Sebastian outfit have now found the back of the net in 12 successive league games. Away from home, meanwhile, the Basques have scored in six straight league games and the price of 99/100 (1.99) for them to score in the first half looks tempting.

This bet has paid out in all five of their competitive fixtures this season, while Levante's four goals conceded this term have all come in the opening 45 minutes, making this an extremely attractive selection.
