Real Sociedad vs Sevilla Preview

 

Real Sociedad vs Sevilla

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Anoeta

Date: 20th December 2017

Kick-off time – 20:30 GMT

Having had a good season last time, these sides have been underachieving this season.

However, they both possess the necessary quality to bounce back.

Real Sociedad are currently mid table but they have been far too generous for a team that hopes to finish inside the top six next may.

They have conceded 2.0 goals per home game this season and 1.75 goals per game overall.

Only three other teams have conceded more in the division.

While many would like to fault their defence for their woeful record, it is important to note that several of their attacking players do not like tracking back to help their defence.

At the other end of the pitch, they remain one of the best attacking sides in the division with 75% of their home league games seeing them scoring over 2.5 goals.

Sevilla tend to play out high scoring games with most of their away games ending in over 2.75 goals per game in the league this season.

They have actually conceded the average of 2 goals per game away from home and have lost at least 60% of their away games this season with their most recent coming in a 5-0 loss to Real Madrid.

Sevilla will be delighted by the fact that Sociedad have not won any of their last six competitive matches and lost their last home game to struggling Malaga.

In the last five meetings between them, Sevilla have only won once, losing three times.
