Real Sociedad Prediction

Real Sociedad had put together a promising looking eight match run without defeat in La Liga which had thrust the hosts into possible contention for a 6th place finish and the Europa League qualifying berth, but recent back-to-back defeats to 2nd placed Atletico Madrid and 6th placed Sevilla means they’re now five points adrift of the last remaining European spot.

However, all three points here would see the hosts close the gap to just two points ahead of this weekend’s Spanish top flight action, with Sevilla having to travel to Espanyol who have won the most home matches of all the teams situated outside the top six in La Liga.

Back to Real Sociedad, and they’ve lost just once out of their last five home matches while recording three wins against Espanyol, Athletic Bilbao and Leganes, all of whom occupy league positions higher than Levante.

Real Sociedad’s overall home record stands at 4-4-5 14/14 and this includes four clean sheets while at the other end, forwards Oyarzabal (10 goals) and Willian Jose (9 goals) have knocked in the goals so far this season for the hosts.

 

Key-Facts – Real Sociedad v Levante

  • Real Sociedad have lost just 1 of their last 5 home matches in La Liga
  • Levante have lost 5 of their last 7 matches overall in La Liga
  • Levante have lost 5 of their last 6 away matches in La Liga

 

Levante Prediction

Levante will make their way over to face Real Sociedad looking to avoid a fourth defeat on the trot in the Spanish top flight following recent losses to Real Madrid, Leganes and Villarreal, while overall, it’s five defeats from their last seven matches for Levante.

The visitors sit in 15th place in La Liga, and whilst they’re not in any immediate danger as they hold a five point lead over third from bottom club Celta Vigo, they’ll no doubt be keen to put an end to their run of recent losses here.

However, an away record which stands at 4-3-7 19/23 that includes five defeats from their last six matches on their travels doesn’t fill me with much confidence as losses at Rayo Vallecano, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Deportivo Alaves and Leganes have seen the visitors score just 1 goal and fail to score in the other four matches.

Betting Tips Verdict

Real Sociedad have a great opportunity to get something from this match and look likely to take the points off a poor travelling Levante outfit in this clash, but I advise using the handicap here.
