If we judge by clubs’ names this should be the most interesting match of the 11th round of Spanish La Liga but this season Real Sociedad plays well below its reputation and in accordance with that is position of this team in the lower half of table. Sevilla is far more successful and several rounds ago it was even leader in the table and right now it has seven points more than its host. After triumph in Bilbao Real Sociedad had three-game winless streak, while after losing at the Camp Nou Sevilla didn’t lose three matches in a row. Last season Real Sociedad won Sevilla 3-1 at home.
Real Sociedad is the most successful visiting team in the league but that didn’t help much to be better position as it still waiting for the first home triumph. Real Socieded totally unexpectedly drew two and lost two matches played at the Anoeta but in the previous round it lost away too. They faced Atletico in Madrid and final 2-0 for the home team is not a big surprise.
It is bigger surprise that Real Sociedad failed to win Girona in San Sebastian two rounds ago, especially as it triumphed before that in Bilbao. They merely drew 0-0 with Girona, which means they have two league matches in a row when they failed to score. It needed just a bit to continue with inefficiency in the Cup but reservist Juanmi equalised for the final 1-1 with Celta away in the very finish of match. Reserve team has created a good base for the 2nd leg but now the first team goes on the pitch, together with T. Hernandez at the left flank.
After being removed from the leading position after defeat by Barcelona at the Camp Nou, Sevilla again had three-game unbeaten streak. Match in which they couldn’t parry to Barcelona didn’t leave a big scar and they firstly outclassed Turkish Akhisar by 6-0 in the Europa League, while in La Liga they won Huesca 2-1 at home. They won the penultimate team in the table with more difficulties than it was anticipated, where hero of the match was Sarabia who scored two goals in the second half, while they received the only one in the stoppage time.
Sevilla stayed undefeated in the Copa del Rey but 0-0 with lower-division Villanovense is still a disappointing result, even if we take into consideration that reserve team was on the pitch. Those players failed to use chance given by manager Machin and probably none of them will get another one in this match but due to problems with injuries Kjaer and Mercado are out of action and Gnagnon will be one of three stoppers. Also, Sevilla’s best scorer this season An. Silva has problems and Ben Yedder will be the lone striker.
Real Sociedad wants of finally win at home and will surely play offensively, but Sevilla is type of opponent that will be able to punish open game, and consequently we expect a great match at the Anoeta that should bring plenty of goals.
