Real Sociedad – Espanyol : Preview & Prediction
Founded in 1909, Real Sociedad is a Basque club which lived its best years during the decade of 1980. In Liga since 2010-2011, the former club of Antoine Griezmann has known how to reposition itself as an important club in the championship, and fights almost every year to go to the European Cup. This season, the club is 7th and has experienced very badly the recovery after confinement. Still racing for Europe, Sociedad can aim for the place of Getafe, 5th and qualified in the Europa League.
Founded in 1900, RCD Espanyol or Espanyol de Barcelona, is the second club in the city, behind FC Barcelona. In total, he has played 74 first division seasons in his history. Next year should not be the 75th, however. And for good reason, the club is red lantern this season with 24 points in 32 games. With 10 behind Celta Vigo, the first non-relegation, the mission now seems almost impossible. There are only 6 days and 18 points left to distribute, Espanyol should win almost all of its matches and count on many mistakes from its competitors …
Real Sociedad is 12th at home in the league with 8 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses.
Sociedad have scored 29 goals and conceded 16 in 16 La Liga home games this season.
Since the recovery, the Basque club started with a draw before suffering 4 consecutive defeats.

Espanyol have scored 11 goals and conceded 23 in 16 La Liga away games this season.
Since the resumption, the Espanyol of Barcelona won its first match before going on to draw 1 and 3 defeats.
Even if Real Sociedad has a lot of trouble since the recovery, it is still racing for Europe and must relaunch itself against the red lantern of the championship. Real Sociedad victory!
