The 27th La Liga round will see Real Sociedad coming to Sevilla for one of the most interesting matches of the Spanish weekend. While Sevilla slowly regains its momentum despite the feverish season, Sociedad lost its form and since the end of January is disappointing in all the competitions where the team participates. For the match’s guests, there are grim chances left for the top-4, while Sevilla still faces danger of a potential relegation zone. In the first-round match, Sociedad was stronger (2-1), with Sevilla ending the match with 9 men on the field.

Sevilla vs. Real Sociedad Preview 

Sevilla Preview

Sevilla slowly recovers from a horrible first part of the season, having lost only once in the last 5 matches. Andalusians lost to Real Madrid (1-0) and hardly can say that their game was completely hopeless. The looming relegation zone is still pretty close, with the 18th placed Cadiz is only 6 points away but the optimism in Sevilla’s game is already bearing fruits as it brought important wins over Atletico Madrid (1-0) and Rayo Vallecano (1-2). Another important factor which comes in handy for the remainder of the season is home ground. Andalusian fans were instrumental in Sevilla’s win over Atletico which was admitted by players and Quique Sanchez Flores and on moral grounds, the team can really build up on this at least for the game against Sociedad.

Real Sociedad Preview

Real Sociedad enters the key period of the season not in the best shape - the team has only one win in 8 matches. While the defeat to PSG in the Champions League play-off match can be explained, three 0-0 draws in a row and 3-1 loss to Villareal raised a lot of questions about Sociedad’s shape and preparedness for a distance. It seems that the team simply does not have enough squad resources to compete in Champions League, La Liga, and Copa del Rey. Prior to the clash with Sevilla, Real Sociedad was eliminated from Copa del Rey, most likely will not advance to the quarter finals of Champions League, and all that remains for Imanol Alguacil’s team is to concentrate on La Liga where Sociedad has goals to settle. Currently placed seventh, the only real chance for Real Sociedad is to qualify for Conference League, since Champions League and Europa League spots look impossible to reach, with 12 and 9 points gap between them.

Betting Tips for Sevilla vs. Real Sociedad

Sevilla Draw No Bet

Given the weak form of Sociedad it is hard to expect that the team will come to Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan fully armed, especially after 120-minutes semifinals of Copa del Rey. There is an obvious resource crisis and the second match against PSG is also looming. Sevilla, in its turn, does not have any weight of other competitions on its shoulders and is already looking for the next season. There is a good chance that Andalusians will not lose to an exhausted Sociedad. Unibet gives 1.73 for this Sevilla vs. Real Sociedad prediction.

Total Under 2.5 Goals

Both of the teams do not show goalscoring wonders this season and given the current circumstances it is unlikely that the match will see a lot of goals on the scoresheet. Sociedad is playing dry in away games, with only 16 goals in 11 matches, while Sevilla has similar statistics at home (17 goals in 13 matches). Both teams arguably do not have the capacity to bring a goalscoring spectacle in this match. Sevilla vs Real Sociedad odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.52.

Sergio Ramos to Receive Yellow Card

Sergio Ramos is one of the toughest defenders in European football and his collections of yellow and red cards in all competitions is impressive. That is why it is quite surprising that in this La Liga campaign he got only 5 yellow cards. At the same time, in the last two matches against Real Madrid and Valencia, he was on the verge of receiving a warning. Given the expected tight clash with Sociedad and remembering the first-round match where Ramos was sent off, spectators can expect at least a yellow card from the Spanish legend. Unibet gives 4.70 for this Sevilla vs. Real Sociedad tip.
