Real Sociedad vs Sevilla Prediction: La Liga | 18.04.2021
The Copa del Rey final is back in the limelight in Spain, but there is interest for those keen to follow an exciting La Liga prize battle. Eight matches will be played on Sunday in the highest level of Spanish football. Our squad is focusing on Real Sociedad vs Sevilla, which is set to start at 13:00 GMT in this article.
Sunday will be the second time this season that these teams will compete against each other. The previous meeting took place in January and produced a mind-boggling five-goal thriller. Sevilla made their home advantage count on this occasion by sneaking up three points thanks to a 3-2 victory. Sevilla haven’t lost to Sociedad since December 2017 and, interestingly, two of the last three meetings have ended 3-2. Armchair fans all over the football world would welcome another.
Unmissable match for Sociedad
Real Sociedad started this game in fifth place in the La Liga table and were hoping to improve a place to secure Champions League football. It seems unlikely, however, as they are 11 points behind Sevilla in fourth. Anything less than a win here will ensure that Sociedad miss the elite European competition and, most likely, qualify for the Europa League. Players in the home locker room know exactly what’s at stake here.
Sociedad start this game in poor form which saw them go four games without a win. They’ve only claimed two of the last twelve points they had, shooting each of their previous two games. Another chunk of the loot wouldn’t do them any favors in this game, and fans know that.
Seville must hold on
Sevilla start the weekend in fourth place with 58 points on the board. They are miles away from the pace of the top three teams as Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Barcelona battle for the title. This means that Sevilla’s main goal between now and the finish line is to hold onto their ground and secure the top-four finish. They would achieve this with a victory in this game, and players know what is expected of them.
Sevilla have the better form of the two teams involved in this game and are unbeaten in their last four. This purple patch is made up of three wins and one draw. They took the win last time around by beating leaders Atletico Madrid 1-0 at home in the upset result of the round. Sevilla may not win the title this season, but they will have a say in which team finishes first.
Real Sociedad vs Sevilla prediction
All the pressure is on the home team here as they know they have to win if they have a chance to finish fourth. Sociedad have the home advantage, but their recent form has been poor and they need to improve here.
Sevilla are 11 points ahead of their opponents, so they could lose this game and finish fourth. The visitors would much prefer to collect all three points and finish the race for fourth place. They are undoubtedly good enough at doing just that.
La Liga odds
Real Sociedad is 2.61 to 22bet with Sevilla 2.75 and the draw 3.26.
