Real Sociedad vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 4 November 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Anoeta (San Sebastian).
Sevilla struggled to break the deadlock against the rock-bottomed Huesca last weekend, but they managed to snatch a narrow 2.-1 win at the end through a second-half brace from Pablo Sarabia.
Los Rojiblancos thus kept ground on the likes of Barcelona and Deportivo Alaves in the battle for the very top of the standings in La Liga. They are about to face a serious test on Sunday playing Real Sociedad away at Anoeta in the 11th round of the competition.
The Basques are playing hot and cold this term, much like they did last season. They sit 12th in the league ladder at the moment and will come into this in low spirits after failing to find the back of the net in last two Primera Division outings against Girona and Atletico Madrid.
Txuri-Urdinak managed to avoid a defeat on Thursday evening when Juanmi notched the 89th-minute equalizer against Celta Vigo away at Balaidos in the first leg of their Copa del Rey tie.
Real Sociedad vs Sevilla: Head-to-head
Sociedad will have a chance to make it all square at 15 wins apiece in their head to head record against Los Rojiblancos with a three-pointer here.
Both teams snatched home wins when they met each other in the previous term of La Liga.
Sociedad won 9 and lost only 4 of 19 home matches against Los Rojiblancos.
Real Sociedad vs Sevilla: Prediction
Pablo Machin could not be happy with the display his men showed in the mid-week Copa del Rey against Segunda B strugglers Vilanovense. Even though his first team line-up saw the likes of Nolito, Quincy Promes and Luis Muriel on the occasion, Sevilla failed to find the back of the net as the first leg ended in a goalless draw.
Knowing about Sociedad’s attacking struggles in recent fixtures, we would not be surprised to witness a low-scoring contest when these two sides come across each other. As for the outcome, the draw looks to be the closest of three.
