Sevilla vs Real Sociedad Prediction & Betting tips
La Liga’s 36th game will open on Friday evening with the match between Sevilla FC and Real Sociedad San Sebastian. In Seville, everything revolves around the dismissal of coach Vincenzo Montella. The Italian had only succeeded in December, succeeding Eduardo Berizzo. After the 1: 2 on Friday night at Levante, the ninth competitive game in series without a win, the Andalusians pulled the ripcord. Until the end of the season, the team is coached by Joaquin Caparros, who coached the club from 2000 to 2005. He should lead the team at least in the Europa League. Sevilla slipped to eighth place in the negative series.
Currently they are only one point behind the first Europa League place. Also at Real Sociedad there has recently been a change on the bench. In mid-March coach Eusebio Sacristan – after Real Sociedad slipped to 15th place in the league – dismissed. By the end of the season, the former coach of the Basque second team, Imanol Alguacil, took over the pros. He got 13 points from his first six games. Thus, the Basque are only two points behind Sevilla and could not only pass by the Andalusians with a victory, but also underpin their European Cup ambitions. Only one of the last six games between the two teams lost to Real. The first leg went 3-1 at San Sebastian.
Sevilla have been waiting for victory for nine competitive matches. After the multiple Europa League winner had finished the first round in La Liga still in sixth place, you will find the team of Coach Caparros in the second half of the table only in 13th place. In the last four season games now the season is to be properly finished. Actually, things were not going so badly for the Andalusians: In the Champions League they moved into the quarter-finals, in the Copa del Rey even in the final.
But missing the Europa League in the domestic league would be a disappointment, especially as you meet in the Copa del Rey on Barcelona. At home Sevilla has suffered only three defeats so far. Of 16 games in the native Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán but you could win only eight. This puts the Andalusians in ninth place in the home table. From the youngest eight home games, there was only one victory. There were also three draws. Coach Caparros has to give up injured Simon Kjaer and Sebastien Corchia on Friday.
Under Imanol Alguacil San Sebastian was able to get close again to the European Cup places. A defeat in Seville, however, would undermine the last dreams of international business. The balance of the new coach to the debut reads excellently: After a 0-0 at Eibar could win three games in a row to zero. On Matchday 34, they lost 2-0 to Malaga under the new coach. Last weekend saw a 3-1 home win in the Basque duel against Athletic Bilbao. San Sebastian could only get 16 of the 46 points away.
With four wins, four draws and nine defeats, Real is in 13th place on the away table. In the most recent 12 away matches, there was only one victory. While they already cheered 44 hits at home, there were only 19 goals in the stranger. The Basque are the most dangerous in the first 15 minutes: No team La Liga could score more in the first quarter of an hour than Real (13). The coach has to give up Sevilla injury due to key players such as Xabi Prieto, Imanol Agirretxe or Carlos Martinéz. Ruben Pardo will miss due to a red card suspension.
