Las Palmas vs Real Sociedad
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Estadio de Gran Canaria (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria).
Last weekend’s loss to Levante ruined all hopes of saving the top flight status for Las Palmas. The Canaries are now ten points away from the safe zone and they are already one foot in Segunda Division knowing there are only seven games left to play. Paco Jemez’s side conceded a 92nd-minute goal away at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia.
Next up for the Canaries are Real Sociedad who have had a dismal campaign in this term of Primera Division. They will, however, enter this match with an improved confidence after trashing Girona 5-0 on the home patch last time out. It was team’s first victory under Imanol Alguacil who has just recently taken over Eusebio Sacristian on the bench. Canales, Januzaj and Oyarzabal were particularly inspired on Sunday against Girona and they should have plenty or space to create in the final third here against Las Palmas.
The hosts conceded two or more goals in four of last five league games and they are winless in last nine league affairs. We would thus fancy backing Mikel Oyarzabal as the anytime goalscorer here since the youngster has been pretty inspired lately. The winger bagged a brace for Spain U21 team in the win over Northern Ireland U21 and he confirmed the good form by netting two in the mentioned drubbing of Girona six days ago.
