Real Sociedad vs Levante
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 7 March 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Reale Seguros Stadium.
The Royals are one of the three teams in the Spanish top flight to stay unbeaten in the past five match-days – with the other two being Barcelona and Real Madrid.
They are currently placed fifth in the table, and are chasing a spot in the top-four, in order to secure qualification to the Champions League.
Meanwhile, the Frogs are currently going through an inconsistent run, and have dropped an alarming number of points in the process. They also have an inferior h2h record against this rival at this venue.
As such, expect Sociedad to have the upper hand this Sunday at the Reale Seguros Stadium.
However, note that majority of h2h clashes over the years had goals in plenty, and Paco Lopez’s men have been scoring in huge numbers despite all their troubles.
For the reasons, expect a high-scoring affair this weekend between these two.
Real Sociedad vs Levante: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last five games in a row had goals from both teams.
- Seven of the former ten encounters had three or more goals.
- Only once have the hosts failed to score at this venue since 2004.
- The visitors have won just twice at this venue since 2000.
Real Sociedad vs Levante Prediction
Imanol Alguacil’s men were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road, by Real Madrid. In the meantime, the Frogs were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Bilbao.
Going on, the Royals were unbeaten in ten of their preceding eleven overall matches, and they have lost just four times at home this whole season. The defeats had come against Manchester United, Atleti, Napoli, and Valencia.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in seven of their former eight games, and they have won just six times on the road this whole season. Three of these had come in the Copa del Rey.
By the looks of things, expect Sociedad to have the upper hand this Sunday.
However, note that goals have come in huge numbers in h2h clashes over the years, and Lopez’s men have scored two or more goals in six of their preceding seven road trips.
Considering these stats, expect Levante to find the back of the net at least once this Sunday.
