Sevilla vs Real Sociedad
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
Along with Barcelona, and Real Madrid, Los Palanganas are the only team in the league to stay unbeaten in the past five match-days.
They need a surplus of three points to get into the podium spots, and with the Spanish top flight being insanely competitive this season, they are determined to not wait till the last minute to go after a Champions League ticket.
Note that they have also been one of the best teams in the competition for the past several years, and they are also the reigning Europa League champions.
Meanwhile, the Whites and Blues are placed third in the table, but they have a single win to show for from their former five fixtures in the league. This stretch also includes three straight losses.
Going on, they also have an inferior h2h record against this opponent over the years.
By the looks of things, expect Sevilla to dominate proceedings this Saturday against Sociedad.
