Spanish La Liga

Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Anoeta (San Sebastian).
This Friday’s clash between two struggling sides in La Liga see Real Sociedad host Deportivo La Coruna at Estadio Municipal de Anoeta.
Real Sociedad have faced a predicament due to a tough New Year schedule. In January alone, we saw Eusebio Sacristan’s men suffer four losses on the bounce. They are now looking forward to bouncing back and finally escape the danger zone over the similar struggling Deportivo La Coruna in front of the home crowd. However, they could be in for another tough challenge.
Deportivo will come into the match after a 2-2 thriller draw against Levante which is just two points behind the 16th placed rivals. The worst loss that has been suffered by this side is a 7-1 thrashing at Real Madrid on their last trip away from home. However, they had bagged a morale boosting draw at Villarreal earlier this month.
Real Sociedad vs Deportivo La Coruna: Head-to-head
Records capture four consecutive draws in the sides’ head-to-head clashes from November 2014 to January 2016. However, Deportivo ended the draw streak with a convincing 5-1 win back in December 2016.
Sociedad have since then taken revenge and delivered wins in their last two matchups. This includes a thriller 2-4 win at the Riazor earlier this season, where they snatched 3 points with a pair of goals in the final minutes of the game.
It will be worth to note down that Sociedad are unbeaten in last 5 head-to-head meetings at Anoeta – 2 wins and 3 draws.
