Real Sociedad vs Levante Prediction & Betting tips
We start the 28th game round in La Liga with the meeting between Real Sociedad and Levante in the Anoeta. The home club has to win to keep its European dream alive, while the visitors still need roughly twelve points to secure body preservation.
The appointment of trainer Imanol Alguacil at the end of last year initially gave Real Sociedad a much-needed boost, but there is not much left of that fresh wind in San Sebastian. The Basques only managed to win one of their last five league matches and lost 5-2 against Sevilla last week. Because of this moderate shape, the Spanish subtop has almost disappeared from sight and qualification for European football is tied to a thread. Levante home is therefore the last straw for Real Sociedad.
However, the outlook is not particularly favorable for Real Sociedad. First, the Basques are having a hard time this season with only four wins in thirteen home duels in their own Anoeta. Secondly, Alguacil has to do without key players like Igor Zubeldia (suspended), Asier Illarramendi and Willian Jose (both injured). Thirdly, important players such as Theo Hernandez, Raul Navas and Hector Moreno have been below their level for quite some time. Although there are still eleven playing rounds to be played in La Liga, but if La Real does not watch out, it only plays its last games for bacon and beans.
Not only in the Netherlands is the VAR plenty of discussion, but they can also do something about it in Spain. Especially at Levante, the video referee is now completely fed up, because last weekend the team from Valencia were questioned in a doubtful way for the third consecutive game. At home against Villarreal, Ruben Rochina saw his goal being rejected, because Jose Luis Morales would have been one millimeter offside. “I’m getting a little tired of it,” said trainer Paco Lopez. “I’m not going to say anything about it anymore, because we don’t get along with it.” I prefer to focus on the game of my team. ”
Partly due to the contribution of the VAR, Levante lost its last three competition duels, which brought the relegation zone closer. Still, I think that Levante will eventually make it. The team has enough quality and an excellent coach. Paco Lopez is now 38 competition duels at the helm in the Ciutat de Valencia, of which the red-blue won no less than sixteen. If we had made a ranking since the appointment of Lopez, then Los Granotas would be in a very creditable eighth place. Yet it is not all rose and moonlight, because this season Levante only managed to win eight times.
