Real Sociedad vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday 7th January, 2017
Kick-off: 19:45 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Anoeta, San Sebastian.
Sevilla will have a super difficult away fixture in their opener in Primnera Division in New Year since they will be travelling to Anoeta to face Real Sociedad who seems to be a completely different team when they play in San Sebastian. The visitors have had an impressive campaign in the first part of the season since they ended the year with only four points deficit behind Real Madrid at the top.
Jorge Sampaoli certainly cannot be thrilled to know that the winter break came just when Sevilla managed to find an impressive attacking form since the team scored as many as 17 goals in last three matches in all competitions. Luciano Vietto and Wissam Ben-Yedder have been functioning great at the start of the new season and if you are looking for the anytime goalscorer pick, you should not move too far away from the duo.
Real Sociedad have been more than impressive at Anoeta so far in the season. The team from San Sebastian only lost a single match at home (to Real Madrid early in the campaign) which is why we can definitely say that Sevilla will have an extremely difficult task to take three points and remain in the contest for the very top of the table.
You can surely remember the performance Eusebio Sacristian’s men showed in the clash with Barcelona, where only a miracle saved Catalans from a certain defeat.
