Real Sociedad vs Alaves
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 13 March 2022
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Reale Arena.
Sociedad are holding on to dear life for their precious sixth position. A top-six finish is a must in the La Liga to ensure European participation, and with just 11 match-days remaining, they have a lead of two points over the seventh-placed Villarreal.
They will be hoping to climb to the fourth spot as well, which is currently in possession of Atletico Madrid, with a surplus of four points.
Likely, this upcoming match-up is an important one for the team. It helps that they are pitted against 19th placed Alaves, who are deemed to be one of the worst teams in the whole of the Spanish top flight. They have won just five times all through the campaign, and they have scored the least number of goals in the competition too.
By the looks of things, expect the desperate Sociedad to make full use of this fixture – and deliver a winning performance this Sunday.
