Real Sociedad – Alaves : Preview & Prediction
Real Sociedad, 5th overall, can still hope for a place in the Champions League next season but the Basque club must recover a handicap of 7 points on Sevilla FC, 4th. The reception of Alaves, 16th, is the perfect opportunity to reduce this gap, especially as Isak’s partners (9 goals) remain on 2 wins in the league against Cadiz CF (4-1) and on the field of Getafe (1-0) on February 14. Real Sociedad could not do anything against Manchester United (0-4) at home in their Round of 16 first leg of the Europa League and are heading straight for elimination. Unbeaten in La Liga for 4 days (2 wins and 2 draws), Real Sociedad must absolutely defeat this modest Alaves team which can dive into the red zone in the event of a setback this Sunday. Alaves lost 5 of the last 7 days of La Liga and remains in particular on a humiliation on the ground of FC Barcelona (5-1) on February 13. Abelardo’s training remains on 4 disappointments during its last 4 trips, offering itself 1 draw in Getafe (0-0) and losing 3 times quite heavily in Cadiz CF (3-1), in Almeria (5 -0) in the Copa del Rey and in Barcelona (5-1) last weekend. Nothing goes any more for Alaves who plays with fire !.
