Sevilla vs Real Sociedad
Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday, 4th May 2018
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuan (Sevilla).
Is there a sting in the tail for Sevilla as they fell out of top six and lost the managed with the 2-1 defeat at Levante last week. The team is on a 9 match win-less run in all competitions since the famous win at Old Trafford back in March and this is enough to hand Vincenzo Montella the axe.
Joaquin Caparros will take over on a temporary basis until the end of the season, the same head-coach who brought Sevilla back to La Liga in 2001 during his tenure between 2000 and 2005.
Sevilla’s main problem is a leaky defense that let in 14 goals from their last 7 league games.
Real Sociedad are 10th in the standings are out of the Europa League promotion radar. This hasn’t prevented the team from some strong performances lately and they are coming on the back of a derby win against Bilbao which made it 4 wins in 5 matches.
Still, Sociedad’s away form is one of the worst in the league lately, with only 1 win coming from their last 13 outings, drew 4 and lost 8.
Sevilla vs Real Sociedad: Head-to-head
Real Sociedad won 4 of the last 6 La Liga matches against Sevilla, drew 1 and lost 1.
However, Sevilla has lost just 2 of their last 11 home games against Real Sociedad, won 7 and drew 2.
Sevilla vs Real Sociedad: Prediction
The change in manager could boost Sevilla’s confidence and morale here. With Sociedad being one of the worst away side in the league, the top pick has to be the home win which is in justification with recent home versus away form and head-to-head record.
Goals can be expected in this match since Sevilla conceded 2 goals per game in their last 7 and Sociedad netting 11 goals in their last 5.
