Foot Predictions shows the La Liga clash on Sunday between Real Sociedad and Alavés, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
Real Sociedad will try to recover from Thursday’s defeat to Manchester United in the Europa League when he continues his La Liga campaign at home to Alaves Sunday afternoon.
Imanol AlguacilThe team’s team won their last two matches in La Liga and maintained the fifth position, but suffered a 4-0 loss to Man United in the first match of the 32 Europa League clashes in Turin last time.
Sociedad will need a miracle at Old Trafford next week to overcome a four-goal disadvantage, and it looks like the Basque club’s European journey for the 2020-21 campaign will end in Manchester.
The Alguacil team still has a lot to play for in the league, as they are currently in fifth place on the table, two points ahead of Villarreal, in sixth place, and five ahead of Real Betis, in seventh place.
The difference for Sevilla, fourth, is seven points and it is very difficult to imagine Sociedad winning a place in the Champions League, but they are determined to stay in fifth place to secure a European position next season.
La Real, as mentioned, won their last two games in the Spanish top flight, defeating Cadiz 4-1 at home on February 7, before registering a 1-0 win over Getafe in the Spanish capital at the end last week.
The two-time Spanish champion only emerged victorious in one of the last three league games against Alavés, and the points were shared in a goalless draw when he drew at the beginning of the season.
Alavés, meanwhile, will enter this weekend’s competition after a 5-1 defeat at the Barcelona field last weekend, which left the visitors in 16th place in the table.
AbelardThe team’s team had entered the clash at Camp Nou after a victory over Real Valladolid, but struggled to contain the Catalan giant, with Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann in an impressive way.
El Glorioso is currently for the fifth consecutive season at this level of football, but ended the 2019-20 campaign in 16th place, just three points from the relegation zone and is once again in the fight for survival.
In fact, a total of 22 points in 23 games left them in 16th position, just one point ahead of Valladolid, 18th, while they are also just five points ahead of Huesca, from the underground.
