Real Sociedad vs Sevilla
Spain – La Liga
Date: Thursday, 16 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Reale Seguros Stadium (San Sebastian).
Real Sociedad is trying to keep their Europa spot intact in the league table as Athletic Bilbao is inching closer to it. With just two games remaining for all, the tensions have shifted to the Europa spots and it will be a much-anticipated clash in the last stretch.
Sevilla has made it into the Champions League qualifiers after being nine points away from Villarreal in the league table. So, the visitors will have a more cool approach to the game and will probably give a tough time for the home team.
Real Sociedad vs Sevilla Match preview
Real Sociedad had only two wins in their recent five fixtures and 1-2 win on the road against Villarreal last time out in the league marked the fifth consecutive game in their schedule with both teams scoring.
They were on a four-game losing streak in the campaign after the league restart, and Espanyol was their only other victory apart from the last one until now.
The home ground advantage hasn’t been paying off for La Real and sadly, just one win in the recent five fixtures does not put forward the strongest case for a home win.
Sevilla has been unbeaten for 13 matches straight with 6 draws in it. They are on a four-game winning streak in the campaign, following a 2-0 win at home against Mallorca in their last clash.
Three of their recent four wins have seen them keep a clean sheet in each. Besides, the visitor has been undefeated in their last six away games in the league.
On the lookout for the third spot in the table, Julen Lopetegui and his men will return home with something from the match at the least.
Real Sociedad vs Sevilla Head-to-head (h2h)

- Their previous encounter gave a 3-2 home win for Sevilla.
- The host has recorded only one of the last five wins.
Real Sociedad vs Sevilla Prediction
Real Sociedad dropped points in their recent matches in the league. Facing a stronger side from the promotion zone in the table will not be their cup of tea in the campaign right now.
The home ground advantage in the match for the host is questionable. They have 6 losses in their 18 home matches so far, and three of them happened within the recent four attempts.
Sevilla is in a tight run with Atletico Madrid for the third place in the table. They will feature in the Champions League next season and their winning streak is evidence for their league form.
Julen Lopetegui and his men have very little to worry about in matches away from home. They have lost only four of their 18 away fixtures in the campaign until now.
The double chance favoring Sevilla will probably be the best bet in the game considering their unbeaten streak in the league lately. Since La Real cannot be taken lightly, the tip for a BTTS with 1.70 odds will also come in handy for the punters.
