Real Sociedad started this season in LaLiga very good and after 16 rounds they are standing at the 5th position. Their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 6 and play in European competition next season. They are doing good job so far, but the match against Sevilla is very important for them, so if they manage to win this game, Real Sociedad will increase their chances to achieve their goal. Home side is in a very good form. They lost only once in their last 10 matches in all competitions. Their performance upfront their supporters is one of the best league. They lost only once at home this season and it was a defeat against leader on the table – Real Madrid. Home side had very good records against visitors, especially when the play at home. In the last 5 games between Real Sociedad vs Sevilla played at Anoeta, home side have managed to win 4 games, while one match was finished with goalless draw. In the last 8 home matches in all competitions Real Sociedad scored at least one goal. Willian Jose, who has already scored 9 league goals this season, is in the great form and he could be the most dangerous player for Sevilla’s defence.

Sevilla play amazing this season in LaLiga and they are currently standing at the 3rd position, behind FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. Their primary goal this season is to finish in the Top 4 and play in the UEFA Champions League next season. Their manager Jorge Sampaoli has made the fantastic team, despite the fact that many good players from the previous season left the team. They have only 4 points less than leader on the table (Real Madrid have one match less), so they can even be the candidate for the title this season, but there are many matches left until the end of the season, so it’s early to talk about it. Visitors have one of the best attacks in Spanish league and they are scoring average two goals per match, but on the other side their main problem is defence, because they are conceding many goals. Sevilla play amazing upfront their supporters and that’s their main weapon, but their away performance isn’t bad (3-3-2). Vietto and Ben Yedder are playing great this season and these two players could make many problems to home defenders.

Home side miss Carlos Martínez (10/0 d), while Bergara (4/0 m) and Agirretxe (0/0 f) are both doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Trémoulinas (0/0 d), Krohn-Delhi (0/0 m), Carriço (4/0 m) and Fernández (3/1 f).

Real Sociedad vs Sevilla Predicted Lineups

Real Sociedad: Rulli, Zaldua, I. Martinez, Raul Navas, Yuri Berciche, Illarramendi, Zurutuza, Xabi Prieto, Vela, Oyarzabal, Willian Jose.
Sevilla: S. Rico, Mariano, Nercado, Pareja, Escudero, Iborra, N’Zonzi, Nasri, Vitolo, Vazquez, Vietto.

Real Sociedad vs Sevilla Prediction

Both teams are playing very attacking football and scoring many goals, but on the other side their defences is very shaky. I expect very interesting and open match between Real Sociedad vs Sevilla and at least three goals.
