Football Predictions shows the La Liga clash on Sunday between Real Sociedad and Levante, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
Real Sociedad will seek a fourth victory in five La Liga games when he receives raise at Estadio Anoeta on Sunday afternoon.
A win this weekend for Levante would be the first time in almost a decade that the team has won three away games in the top flight.
After a failure in form at the beginning of the season, which led many to believe that La Real’s good fortune had come to an end prematurely, Imanol Alguacil managed to lead his team back to winning ways in recent weeks.
Before last weekend, La Real was at the crest of a three-game winning streak that saw them comfortably dispatch names like Cadiz, Getafe and Alavés.
Against Real Madrid last time, La Real was just minutes away from beating the champion after Portu put them in front at the beginning of the second half. The good work of the Alguacil men ended up being undone by Vinicius junior that tied for death.
Although Sunday’s clash may seem simple for fifth-placed La Real, it is worth remembering that Alguacil’s team has not managed to win in the last four league games against Levante.
Victories against Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have brought immense joy to the Levante faithful in recent weeks. However, the midweek defeat to Atlético de Bilbao in the Copa del Rey put an end to one of this season’s impossible dreams.
In what is still proving to be a stellar year for the Valencian team, Levante are currently ninth in the standings and well on their way to their best league result in almost a decade.
Against Athletic Club in the last game of the championship, Levante drew 1-1 after Roger Marti converted a penalty in the first half.
Three points against La Real this weekend would go a long way in overcoming the difficulties of the Copa del Rey.
