Real Sociedad vs Levante
Spain – La Liga
Date: Friday, 15th March 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Anoeta (San Sebastian).
Back-to-back games against Sevilla and Atletico Madrid have put a temporary halt to the impressive run Sociedad had been having in the league. They were cruising unbeaten from the turn of the new year until a difficult couple of weeks crept up.
With Levante next taking the guests’ tag to the Anoeta, Real will be keen to get back to their days in the sun.
In more than the last two months, Levante has recorded just a paltry two wins, and that too against fellow relegation-battlers.
They have a cushion of five points of safety right now, which may be gone at a moment’s notice, but considering the unbelievable lack of consistency by teams below, it just might be enough to see them through this season.

Real Sociedad vs Levante Prediction
The Anoeta is notorious for making life difficult for visitors. On top of that, Real has been very good this season, with them remaining unbeaten in ten of their last twelve matches.
At this venue, they were unvanquished in five of their last six attempts, and the sole loss came against Atleti.
Meanwhile, Levante lost their last three fixtures on the trot, and four of their last five. They were also winless in six of their last seven matches. On the road, they lost six of their last seven fixtures and were winless in ten of their last 11.
Coming to h2h ties, Sociedad registered four of the last five wins, and has been unbeaten at their home for the last seven years.
Based on these observations, the best tip is surely a home win. But to be on the safe side, we will go with DNB.
Regarding the guests, the team failed to score in their last two overall games, and in five of their last six on the road. They also failed to score against this opponent in three of the last four meetings, returning just a single goal in these four games.
With the additional difficulty provided by the famed Anoeta to visiting teams, Levante is tipped to return without goals this weekend.
